Working with motion tweens

Animating objects describes how to implement scripted animation in ActionScript.

Here we describe a different technique for creating animation: motion tweens. This technique lets you create movement by setting up motion interactively in a FLA file using Adobe® Flash® CS4 Professional. Then you can use that motion in your dynamic ActionScript-based animation at runtime.

Flash CS4 automatically generates the ActionScript that implements the motion tween and makes it available for you to copy and reuse.

To create motion tweens, you must have a license for Adobe Flash CS4 Professional.
