Join Kelly McCathran for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying easing with the Motion Editor, part of Introduction to Flash Animation.
In this video, we're going to use the Motion Editor and a feature called easing. …Easing makes your animations look more realistic and more natural. …There are two options, ease in where the motion begins slowly and then gains speed. …And ease out, where the motion begins quickly, then loses speed. …For example, if I'm doing this ball animation, when I play the movie with …Cmd+Return or Ctrl+Enter, the ball's traveling at a consistent speed, which …wouldn't happen if you really threw a ball against a surface.…
So, I'll close that up. What should happen if the ball is thrown? …It hits, it slows down. When it bounces, it actually reverses …direction, that affects the velocity. So, I want to demonstrate all of that. …In order to make it easier to see that the ball reverses direction, we're going to …fill the ball with a gradient. If I double-click on the ball, I'm …editing the movie clip symbol called red ball. …I need to double-click again to get down to the drawing object.…
And now I can select the red ball to be able to change its fill to a gradient. …
