Smooth Horizontal Scrolling Text?
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 Dynamic Text Box?
I am trying to adjust the speed of the scroll box. It is a little too quick. I am not sure where to start.....I tried adjusting the button (_root.TextBox.scroll -= 1;) but it won't accept any smaller numbers. Can someone point me in the right direction?

ActionScript 3.0 :: 'Smooth' Scrolling Text With TextField() ?
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?
I have made a map which I have made scrollable across the stage using the keyboard arrow keys.


PHP Code:

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
if (Key.isDown(39)) {


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
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
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 3.0 :: Not Smooth Image Scrolling
I'm making a side scrolling platformer and I wonder why image movement is so choppy, especially if velocities arent whole numbers? Images I'm using are: one 320*350, one 500*500 and few of 50*50 all in PNG format with alpha support and cached as bitmap. Framerate is 30FPS.

Actionscript 3.0 :: Smooth Scrolling With Large Images?

Here is an example online, I am trying something similar but am not happy with what I am seeing, perhaps it is just on my side. The scrolling seems choppy/jagged. I have this same issue doing a similar scroll with lots of big images. Is there any way to get a nice smooth scroll at a decent speed with flash?

Ive ported my as2 code into as3 but am seeing the same results. I have used tweener and tweenlite, nothing Ive tried is helping. how to achieve a smooth scroll?

Actionscript 2.0 :: Smooth Scrolling Using Browser Scroll Bar
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;

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.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Simple Scrollbar - Smooth Horizontal Scrolling
I've made the kirupa simple scrollbar [URL] to scroll horizontal. This works just perfect but it is not smooth. My question to you is - how to make it smooth? I've got 4 MC's with the instance names content, mask, scroll_area and scroller.

My AS looks like this:
onClipEvent (load) {
_root.content_width = content._width;
_root.scroller_area_width = scroll_area._width;
scroller._width = _root.scroller_area_width/(content._width/scroll_area._width);
_root.scroller_width = scroller._width;
[Code] .....

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