    Swinging motion doesn't work

    Haydar_Adobe

      I am new to Flash, and I am learning it through the (Adobe Flash Professional CS5 Classroom in a Book).

      All the examples work fine, except for one which is related to bones.

       

      The basic idea is to rock/swing a small boat that has a waving flag attached to a standing post within the boat..

      I created the bones, then I moved the Armature to a new location, so that the boat moves forward.

      I selected the first bone on the boat and applied a spring value (20).

       

      When I play the movie, the boat jumps around the screen.

      When I cancel the spring, the boat moves forward without rocking.

       

      Did I do something wrong.

      I am following the instructions to the letter.

       

      By the way I am using Flash Professional CS5.5 on Windows 7.

       

      Your help will be greatly appreciated.
