Smooth Horizontal Scrolling Text?

Aug 24, 2009

below is a link to a super simple movie that I have of text scrolling/moving horizontally across the screen.The only issue I have is at the quality of the scroll/movement. it is inconsistently jerky, sometimes when it first starts getting on the screen and leaving the screen  sometime all the time and sometimes when it leaves the screen.I have had this issue with other movies and scrolling things across the screen horizontally I had to increase the frame rate to 30 fps and extend the time line but it never really got to be a smooth scroll.

ActionScript 3.0 :: 'Smooth' Scrolling Text With TextField() ?

Jun 1, 2010

I'm just fine tuning my flash site and am trying to get my custom scroller to scroll my text smoothly.

Basically I am using scrollertext.scrollV [URL] to scroll my text inside a function but scrollV is an int and flash performs vertical scrolling per lines. My text is quite large in some areas and the scroller is very 'non smooth'. How else can I achieve a smooth scrolling effect (would be nice to scroll in pixel values not line values) ?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Smooth Scrolling Buttons For A Map?

Feb 26, 2009

I have made a map which I have made scrollable across the stage using the keyboard arrow keys.

e.g:

PHP Code:

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
if (Key.isDown(39)) {
_x=_x-4;

[Code]....

These on screen buttons allow the user to move the map every time they click however it would be more user friendly if these buttons continued to move the map on a hold down state until released or via rolling on/off.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Math For Smooth Scrolling

Jun 12, 2009

Envrironment: Flash CS3, AS3 I have a horizontal image scrolling project that I am working on, and it works but is not super smooth, I would like it to be smoother when it scrolls, and realize that this is a function of pixels scrolled over time and the FPS of the document.

Right now I am moving the items 1 pixel at a time on a timer with delay of 8 to get it to scroll at the speed I want. I am moving it at 1 pixel in order to catch exactly when an object should wraparound to the beginning of the scroller to show up again. So I don't know that I can really change the number of pixels moved to more than 1 and still have the images spaced perfectly, which makes me think I need to increase or decrease the FPS and or the timer delay to make it scroll smoother. Right now it is at 30FPS and as mentioned the timer delay is 8. Small changes to the delay is not a problem.

This is one aspect of flash i don't fully understand. I would really like to know how to figure this out so I can apply it to future projects as well without doing trial and error to make it smooth. Can it be function, like a way to figure out I need to move a 120pixel picture 60 pixels in 2 seconds, what should my FPS be and the picture size and movement size and number of seconds can be variables?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Smooth Scrolling Of Picture

Jul 31, 2010

I'm creating a website and I need to have a slideshow of scrolling pictures (not interactive to user) and I know how to do it with the old motion tweening but when I play the movie the scrolling pic is not smooth but choppy. I already played around with frames and frame rates; the image scrolls faster or slower but the choppines remains. Here is an example of what im looking to do: **Notice how the picture of the bed scrolls smoothly when the site loads. [URL]

I know that for this site they probably used the "ease" effect and that works when the image is gonna stay still at the end but for my movie the images are gonna be scrolling up,down,left,right in a loop. Can you guys tell me how can I do this without the movie being choppy? perhaps there's a way to do it with code.

Actionscript 2.0 :: Smooth Scrolling Using Browser Scroll Bar

Aug 22, 2009

Here's the scenario... I have an .swf that is 1050px in height. On most browser's that is too tall. What I'd like to do, is use the browser's scroll bars to auto scroll to the bottom of the page during the loading sequence, and then scroll back up to the top. To do this, I'll need to make a javascript function call using ExternalInterface.call();

I found a suitable smooth scrolling javascript example on the internet. [URL] By clicking <a href> links, it scrolls to HTML anchors on the page. I figured that instead of clicking on the textual links like in that example, I could simulate the event by calling the event from flash. I'm just not sure how to do it exactly.

Flash :: Slow Motion Tween Text Isn't Smooth?

Apr 17, 2010

i have to create a movie where a text string move in horizontal.

the problem is that in the movie (800px wide) the text should go from right to left in about 7 seconds (so it have to go about 400px to the left in 7 sec).

i created a motion-tween with ease for my "text" and the tween is long (at 30fps) 30*7=210 frames.

the result is that the text DON'T MOVE FLUID... it's not a uniform movement... it's too visible the fact that it moves X pixel each x frames. it's the exact opposite of SMOOTH MOVEMENT.

How can i obtain a smooth slow-motion text movement?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Smooth Resize Onclick And Animation To Be Smooth?

Feb 9, 2004

I have a movieclip that I want to be resized when a button is clicked. I want the animation to be smooth as if it had weight though. I read the tutorial on this but I need something slightly different, I would rather it where I can just refer to a function that is set in another movieclip. That way I could easily refer to it again and just set the height, width, and if possible, x, and y.

And my second question, is how to keep the border of my movieclip that is going to be resized the same thickness. I want the inside to be resized but the sides to stay the same width but move to stay on the edge.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash Scrolling TLF Text

Feb 25, 2011

You may have noticed my post yesterday. Well I'm almost done with the little project. I've got a TLF text field with a custom scroll bar AND some buttons attached to it so I'm feeling pretty slick. Unfortunately, I just dont have enough knowledge to make the buttons interact with the scroll bar (as we see in the browser scroll bars or the UIScrollBar)

So I can scroll away AND I can click the buttons to make the text roll. but the buttons don't affect the position of the scroller and that just isn't good enough! If you would care to have a peek and see inside the mind of a newbie I've attached my FLA file and pasted the AC code below. how to make the scroller interact with my buttons.

Flash :: Auto-scrolling Text Areas?

Nov 22, 2010

I'm creating a Flash game...blackjack, actually. It uses a back-end made from Java.Anyway, there's a basic chat in the game, where new messages are added to the bottom...pretty much your standard chat window.This is how I do it now:txtArea.verticalScrollPosition = txtArea.maxVerticalScrollPosition;However, that does not always work. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't (oddly enough). I'm looking for a permanent solution. txtArea is the component TextArea (d'uh), and I'm using ActionScript 2.0.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Create A Scrolling Text In Flash MX?

Jun 16, 2003

I'm trying to create a scrolling text in Flash MX that will go horizontally from side to side of the stage, each scrolling text will be a number of words each separated of each other by a bullet or small circle. The scrolling text will be a Movie Clip with one single Dynamic text field that will load it's variables from a .txt document, that dynamic field will duplicate it self as many times as the amount of variables on the .txt document.

So I was thinking that if I created variables using a numbers like 1 = word, 2 = another word ect. To whatever numbers of words I want to be displayed on the scrolling text I could use a script on the first frame that could say something like this. (Dynamic text field has a variable called ticker)

loadVaraibles(TickerText.txt, this)
ticker = 1 + "."

Now comes the questions

Can flash read more than one variable in a single .txt file? Or it read on and assume that everything else within the file is just part of the first variable?

If this is possible how can I tell flash duplicate this dynamic text field as many times as the amount of variables on this particular .txt file?

I know this all sound really confusing but I hope that some one can understand me and give me some tips to get this to work or maybe make a simple sample of it and upload it on my server so I can see how can this be done.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Scrolling HTML Formatted Text In Flash

Jan 13, 2009

I'm using the techniques discussed in this thread on ActionScript.org to load formatted HTML text into flash. I also want to scroll said text, and for that purpose I'd like to use Flashscaper's scrollbar. I've run into a bit of a snag, however.

The text displays fine. However, the scrollbar does not appear when initiated and the mask (a red rectangle) can be seen on the right side of the content area; not the entire thing, just a red area about 5-10 pixels wide. The text can be scrolled using the mouse wheel, so the scrollbar functionality is intact. I think this has something to do with the transition within the ContentText function, but when I comment that out, the text doesn't display at all, nor does the scrollbar. Listed below are the three components to this project.

ContentText.as:

Code:
package
{
import flash.display.MovieClip;

[Code].....

As an update, I did get this sort of working by adding a button that brings in the scrollbar as a separate function. This works after the text's transition has completed. Perhaps I can simply tie the scrollbar function to a timer that fires when the text begins to load?

Actionscript :: Get A Smooth Text Crawl Using Flex?

Aug 6, 2010

I'm working on a standalone Flash application (written using Flex 3/ActionScript 3) that features a text crawl, like what you might see at the bottom of your TV when watching a cable news channel; it's a long narrow box that text moves across from right to left. I've implemented it by creating a Label element, populating it with text, and then moving it using a mx:Move object with a Linear.easeNone easing function. It works, but it has ample room for improvement. It looks a bit jerky, and tends to have a fair amount of "tearing" (the top and bottom halves of the text sometimes fall out of sync).

I tried throwing math at the problem to get the crawl's movement rate synced with the monitor's refresh rate, but that was a bust. I found out the hard way that the app's frame rate jumps around too much; the "optimized" crawl varied between looking silky smooth and like it had epilepsy.

Is there anything else folks would recommend I try to smooth this thing out? Is there some alternate design you'd recommend I try?

Edit: Some context: the crawl is part of a digital signage application (played from a standalone Flash projector -- no web browser) that does stuff elsewhere on the screen, including video playback and rendering text and images. It definitely gets choppier during video playback, but it's never as smooth as I'd like it to be.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Smooth, Slow Dynamic Text Animation?

Dec 22, 2009

I have dynamic text that needs to animate slowly across the screen but right now it jerks in 1 pixel increments as compared to the vector graphics accompanying it.

I've increased the frame rate, converted it to a bitmap, applied GridFitType, etc., none of which (or my implementation) seemed to work.

Is there a way to achieve smooth animation with dynamic text at slow animation speeds?
