ActionScript 3.0 :: Using Tween Class With MouseOver

Feb 10, 2011

I have a movie clip (box) with a text box embedded in it. I want it to expand and move to the middle of the stage when the user places the mousepointer over top of it. When the mouse is moved off I want the movie clip to return to its original position. My code almost works. The MOUSE_OUT works and returns the movieclip to its original position but the MOUSE_OVER causes the movie clip to bounce to the center of the stage, return to the original position and then bounce back to the center of the stage before coming to rest at the center location. I just want it to go directly to the center of the stage.

Also, if I have 25 movieclips like this, is there anyway that I can capture the xy coordinates of the current movieclip that is being clicked on so that I can use the same code for each movieclip to expand and move it to the center of the stage and return them to their original . I am assuming that I would have to capture the name of the current movieclip being clicked on, in a variable and capture the initial x and y coordinates in two other variables. Can I then use these variables in the following Tween statements? Not sure how to code it so that the statement will read the contents of these variables and use them as paramenters in this routine.

square1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OVER,tex ter);
function texter(e:MouseEvent):voidn
new Tween(square1, "x", Regular.easeIn, square1.x, stage.stageWidth/2, 1, true);

ActionScript 3.0 :: Tween Class With Button Mouseover / Mouseout

Apr 3, 2009

I've got the following movie online to look at:(disregard background, temporary image)URL...I have 3 icons (will be 4, the photos at the bottom of the movie).When hovering over a button, it should rise up around 50px, and on mouse out, it should drop back down to its original position.If you look at the movie, it does that, however, if you move around the images a bit you'll see that at some points it picks up 2 photos/buttons at a time (since they're overlapping a bit I imagine), but the BIG problem is that sometimes, when picking up both images, they do not return to their original position when mousing OUT as they should, they remain suspended as if they are stuck at the end of the onmouseover function and can't come back down.[code]

IDE :: Movie Clips Contents Alpha At Different Rate During Tween Class Tween

Mar 4, 2010

If i have a clip with a bunch of stuff inside it (on layers) like other clips, bitmaps, etc. and perform a tween on that clip (via tween class), the stuff inside the clip seems to alpha at different rates.

For instance, i have a clip with an empty movieclip which loads a bitmap image and on top of the bitmap image, i have a gradient feathered edge (.png) bitmap and on top of that I have some dynamic text (embedded fonts).

The bitmap is supposed to create a feathered edge on the photo but since they alpha at different rates, you always see the hard edge of the photo...

is there a solution like cacheAsBitmap which would let the whole clip alpha at once? If it's cacheAsBitmap, i must be using it incorrectly, b/c it's not working!

ActionScript 1/2 :: Change Tween Properties Outside Constructor In Tween Class?

Oct 2, 2010

Am trying to use the Tween class to scale and move a movieclip. Now the movieclip is within the loader, so I need the motion to be controlled by the percentage loaded. Now the code to move the movieclip to its final position is:

var xscaletween:Tween = new Tween(mstone, "_xscale", Regular.easeOut, mstone._xscale, 220, 6, true);

But this is the final location, I want to be able to change the properties of xscaletween, yscaletween, xmovetween and ymovetween as per percentage loaded.As in, within this final boundary limit of the tween, I want, for example, xscaletween, to scale only till 140 till percentage hits 50. Is this possible?? If not is there a workaround?Or do I have to use new tweens within each percentage limit?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Tween Class - Tween Back To The Original Position?

Oct 27, 2009

I am trying to understand the thinking behind motion tweening using AS3 (rather than doing it on the timeline).I am trying to create a simple platform game, and while this is simply a learning project, I have an movieclip instance on the stage, and using basic x+5 logic I can get the instance to move left and right on the stage accordingly.Trying to make the instance 'jump' is a bit trickier. This is the code I am using:

ActionScript Code:
import fl.transitions.Tween;
import fl.transitions.easing.*;
import fl.transitions.TweenEvent;[code].....

I thought this code would move the instance from it's current y-position and tween it to it's highest jump point. From here I planned to use a MOTION.FINISH event to tell it to tween back to it's original position.Something strage happens though, rather than tween from the current y position and move up, the instance instantly transforms it's position to y+100 and then tween back to the original position. So it kind of turns out that it is the second part of the jumping action that I want to create.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Detect MouseOver Within A Class?

Jul 29, 2011

im trying to detect when the my mouse crosses an object within my "game".
my object has its own class and is created on the main file in a loop (when you press space)
i want it to listen to MOUSE_OVER event but when i add the eventListener to the object it doesnt detect it.
the only way i found to get this event to happen is to create my own event and on every frame check if the mouse pointer is inside the object, and dispatch the costume event. the problem with this method is that it wont detect the mouse if it passes over the object fast.
by the way im using Box2d engine
Main Code:
var launchPoint:Point = new Point(G.randomNumber(100, 500), 420);
var direction:Point = new Point(G.randomNumber(200, 400) , 10).subtract(launchPoint);

Flex 4 :: Change Image On Mouseover / Mouseout Function Fails When Mouseover Quickly?

Mar 6, 2011

I have a basic mouseover in my flex application which changes an image onmouseover and changes it back onmouseout using the code mouse Over "functionToChangeImageSource()" and another one to mouseout.It works fine when you slowly mouse over and out, however if I quickly move the mouse over it, it occasionally stays on the mouseover image and the mouseout function doesnt appear to kick in. Is there anything I can do to fix this, or does anyone have any ideas why its happening?Also, I've tried the rollOver and rollOut instead but it has the same problem.[code]I'd imagine you're correct about the mouseover event not completing before mouseout is but how to I fix this?

function onRotateRight(evt:MouseEvent):void {
var myTweenRotation:Tween = new Tween(mc_gallery, "rotation", Elastic.easeOut, 0, 90, 5, true);

The problem I have is that when the the right button (mc_rightBtn) is clicked again, the rotation starts from the original position. Ideally I would like the rotation to continue from its current position.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Using The Tween Class?

Dec 31, 2006

I've started using the Tween class as I find it to be a really quick way to create some smooth animations. However, what I would like to do is have a sequence of many different objects animating into the scene, but all using the Tween class.Now if they were all to animate in at the same time that would be fine - but what I would like to achieve is each object to animate in one at a time, so once 1 object has finished, the next one then animates in etc etc over until all 7 are animated in. I've read up a little on using continueTo etc but not sure how to get this to affect different mc's instead of self.

IDE :: AS3 - Tween Class And Rollovers

Jul 13, 2009

So I'm actually doing something very simple here, but it's my first attempt at tweening things through code rather than on the timeline, so I'm pretty new at this. Basically I have a small image gallery, all the thumbnails are butted up against one another in a grid. When you roll over an image, the title should tween to reveal itself below the image. I have it set up so that both the image and title are in one movie clip, with the image on the top layer.

My code does work when you move your mouse slowly, however when you roll over and out really fast, the whole thing freaks out a little, and the titles don't tween back properly, they actually stay exposed even though they shouldn't. It looks like they kind of tween back, then pop out again, with out a tween. I linked to my current swf file so you can see for yourself. [URL].

Here is an example of my code which is iterated for every image.
var myTween:Tween;
MC.buttonMode = true;
function onMC(event:MouseEvent):void{
myTween = new Tween (MC.title,"y",Strong.easeOut,94.5,138,.65,true);
} function offMC(event:MouseEvent):void{
myTween = new Tween (MC.title,"y",Strong.easeIn,138,94.5,.35,true);

ActionScript 3.0 :: Scaling Using Tween Class?

It was supposed to be an easy code but i can't make it work until now.I want my intro texts to get scaled to a certain postion when clicked .So far this is what I have done,
var scaleTo:Number = 0.6;
var introTexts:Array = [...];
for(var i:int = 0;i<introTexts.length;i++){    introTexts[i].addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, onintroClick);}

Right now,this code doesn't do anything, I can trace out "click" but nothing happen. I tried out the first item from the array first to make sure the code is working. The x position I want is -15 and y is 300.

ActionScript 3 :: Tween Class And Pan Effects

Mar 6, 2012

I'm trying to make a "pan" efect (I'm not sure if this is pan) in flash (as3) where you have an image bigger than the mask where it is displayed (just horizontaly). It's a very simple effect, but I'm having trouble with the tweens. First, I tried with the tween class. But it ended up a mess with the speed of the tween (the parameter where you set the frames or seconds of the tween). The "begin" parameter is easy, is the x value of the object, no matters where is it.

The "end" parameter is easy too, is 0 or the end of the image, depending if you are on the left or right button (the tween begins when you are over those buttons and end with a stopTween when you are out of them or when the tween is over). The problem I'm facing it's the "duration" parameter: I want the same speed in all the tweens, no matters where it begins. Obviously, if I put a static value, if I'm in the middle of the image, the speed reduces to half.

So I'm trying to figure out how to create an algorithm to do this. I first tried something like calculating which percent of the image is the current "x" value:

If I am at 50%, make the tween in 50 frames.
If I am at 90%, make the tween in 10 frames.
If I am at 20%, make the tween in 80 frames.

But I think there should be a way to make it easier. Maybe I'm getting it wrong, and the tween class is not what I need... I'm just trying to make an displacement effect, always at the same speed (although an ease in and out until the speed is reached would be greater).

ActionScript 3.0 :: Any Way To Delay Tween Class

Jul 20, 2009

I've been looking for a way to delay a Tween using the AS3 Tween class instead of Tweener, Tweenlite, LMZ, etc. Most of the responses I've found declare Tweenlite the easiest and requiring the least amount of code. I finally found a solution for the Tween class:

// the masking code;
import fl.transitions.Tween;
import fl.transitions.easing.*;
var twn:Tween = new Tween(my_clip,"width",Regular.easeInOut,1,300,1,true);
twn.stop(); // stop the tween right away,
setTimeout(twn.start,1000); // start the tween after 1 second;

And that's it. I wanted to share. One of the challenges I face in my agency is handing off code to someone else who doesn't have any of the tween libraries installed so I have to walk them through it. The Flash Tween Class is not so bad, if you ask me.
