In Flash Professional CS5 Essential Training, author Todd Perkins explains the fundamentals of Flash Professional CS5, the industry standard for creating animations and interactive applications for the web, desktop, and mobile devices. This course starts with the basics, such as using the drawing tools to create simple animations, and progresses to automating animation with tweens and adding interactivity with ActionScript. This course also covers how to add sound and video to projects, enhance realism with effects like easing, and publish a project to a variety of platforms. Exercise files are included.
When you are working with the classic tween, you don't have the option to use the motion editor. So you will have to use the Properties panel to add effects like easing. Classic tweens don't have as powerful easing control as motion tweens do, but there are some things that you can do. Let's take a look as how it works. Select one of the frames of your classic tweens in the timeline and then go to the Tweening section of the Properties panel to adjust easing. You will also notice some other sections like Rotate where you can rotate an object and a few check boxes down here like Orient to path where you can make an object follow along a path.
For easing, I am just going to click-and- drag the slider all the way up to ease out. Remember, easing out makes an animation go faster at the beginning and slower at the end. Let's take a look at this animation in the Flash Player. So the biker comes in and slows down as she gets closer to the end. So to add simple easing to a classic tween, select the tween in the timeline and then set the easing in the Tweening section of the Properties panel.
