ActionScript 2.0 :: Control Movieclip Animation Within Another Movieclip Animation

Aug 23, 2011

I have an enemy movieclip.Inside that movieclip I have a motion tween so it moves around on the stage, then inside that movie clip I have an animation of his feet moving so it looks like he is walking as he moves across the stage. Also in that same animation of him walking is an image of him laying down and dying on frame 6.I just have the walking animation looping as the playhead gets to frame 5 so it won't show him dying.So what I want to know is how do I make it so when my hero shoots him with a bullet..the enemy goes to that dying image on frame 6 and stop.I can already make it so the bullet will kill an enemy if it is just movieclip>inside movieclip.But I don't know how to make the code communicate to make it work when its movieclip>inside movieclip>then inside that movieclip.

Walking Animation (MovieClip Control By Keyboard Events)

May 2, 2009

I have two MovieClips, and both are controlled by keyboard events. One is a globe that I want to rotate in one direction or the other. The second is a walking animation that should change direction or stand still depending on which key is pressed or if none are.

Here is the AS Code:
/*var rightDown:Boolean = false;
var leftDown:Boolean = false;
var upDown:Boolean = false;
var downDown:Boolean = false;*/
stage.addEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_DOWN, keyDownHandler);
[Code] .....

You can see that I've tried a few different methods, but neither has worked correctly. Using the timer came close, but then the globe kept speeding up, and I couldn't get the walking animation to default back to the standing animation. Here is the .fla [URL].

ActionScript 2.0 :: Control A MovieClip Animation Based On A NetStream Event?

Jul 29, 2006


What I am trying to do is get the animation of the audio levels (red bars next to the power switch) to only happen while a video is actually playing (videos are in the video gallery section). I have the animation done and I can easily get it to start and stop based on pressing the play and stop buttons, but since they start and pause the video you would get instances where the video isn't playing but the audio levels would be animated, which I don't want.

Here is an example of the code in the play button (using NetConnection and NetStream to play the videos):

play_btn.onPress = function() {
infoText_txt.text = "PLAY";

The only way I can think to make it work exactly as I want it is to have Flash look to see if the video is actually playing or not and I can't figure out how to do this or if its even possible using the NetStream command I am using to start and stop the videos.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Bitmap Animation Vs MovieClip Animation

Jun 29, 2011

After reading some articles about increasing performance, I read that if you would cache your movieclip animation to a sequence of bitmaps, that this would be much faster. So after spending lots of hours I created a bitmap animation class that converts a movieclip to a bitmapanimation.When I completed it, and did a performance test with about 40 movieclips on a stage size of (1024x900) and set the frameRate to 100 fpsIt runned on 58 frames per second. (30 mb memory) But when I tested it without converting it to bitmaps by doing it the old and simple way of adding the movieclip dynamically on the stage withalso 40 movieclips, it runned even better (61 fps). (4mb) And it did not use so much memory as the bitmap approach was doing.

Then I thought perhaps I was doing something wrong with convertinh to Bitmaps, and found on the internet also a Bitmap Animation Class, and after testing this one, I got the same result. It seems to run faster if you don't convert it to a bitmap sequence.I only have experienced negative points, like slower framerates, using more memory, and the prerendering causes a calculation performance pause when compileing. (this is even with the fix to pass the already rendered frames of the movieclip to the next bitmap animatioin class) I am now confused of what is the best way of creating better pefromance when using the same movieclip animation (like 80 times at once).

IDE :: Packaging Animation Into A Movieclip?

Nov 5, 2009

I'm trying to create a motion comic using elements of 3d flash. I am trying to animate symbols on multiple layers, and then package all that into a movieclip so that movieclip in turn can be moved to display the 3d elements.

Whenever I create this containing movieclip, the layers (and thus the animation) are left behind, with the images being put into the movieclip.

ActionScript 1/2 :: Movieclip Animation Not Playing?

Jun 20, 2011

I have no idea why it doesn't work. I have a movieclip I make it go to frame lowWalk. mc_player2.gotoAndStop("lowWalk"); On that frame is another movieclip with an animation which should just automatically play and loop... but it doesnt, it stays on the first frame. Remember I tell it to go to frame lowWalk, which is 1 frame with a movieclip with an animation within. I even tried putting a play(); actions on the first frame inside the animation movieclip.

ActionScript 2.0 :: How To Tell/know When A Movieclip Animation Ends

Apr 17, 2007

I want to be able to know when a certain movieclip animation ends (Flash MX).For example: The players character shoots an arrow, while the arrow animation is on - the players character can't move when arrow animation ends - the players character is free to move again.

How do I do that?I've tried putting some AS in the last frame of the animation (letting the application know that animation has ended) but once in a while this AS doesn't execute - maybe Flash drops some frames (and that frame among them)?Do I have an event for movieclip ending (Flash MX)?Is the only way is to use timeouts (setInterval)?

IDE :: MovieClip Animation For Looping Layer

Nov 16, 2009

I'm very new to Flash and after searching for a solution to looping a layer I understand this is best done by creating a new Movie Clip and creating the animation to be looped here. I've done this, and then placed the Movie Clip into a layer on the Scene... but it just won't play at all. It acts like I've placed just the symbol that shows in frame 1 of the Movie Clip and it remains static.

IDE :: Read Certain Properties Of A Keyframed Movieclip Animation?

Jan 18, 2010

I'm wiriting some code to read certain properties of a keyframed movieclip animation. The idea is that an animater will create an animation, the code will record the animation as it plays, then the numberd that have been saved can be used later. x, y, rotation, xScale and yScale all did swimmingly well. skewX and skewY come out as undefined, on every frame. They're both used in the movie (typically around 4 - 8 degrees). They're never the same as each other.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Controlling Character Animation In MovieClip

Jul 7, 2002

I am trying to make a movie in flash, and each character is its own movie clip symbol. I also have a variable for each character, to control the current animation running. I have one character in the movie, for now, and that movie clip symbol is called mann. It is just a simple draw, I am just testing this method out. Now, the first frame of the movie, has this action:
mann1_anim = 1;

That is the first time I use that variable, so then it will be created, right? anyway, then, the first frame of the main movie clip symbol has this action:
while (mann1_anim == 1) { }

On that first frame, my man character only stands, so this action should do so that while the mann1_anim variable is 1, the man should just stand there, right?
Then, the 9th frame of the MOVIE, has this action:
mann1_anim = 2;

Then something should happened in the action of the first frame of the main movie clip symbol, because mann1_anim is no longer 1. Then the mann movie clip should start and play at frame 2, right? From frame 9 of the MOVIE to frame 22, I have created a motion tween for the main symbol. from right of the screen to the left. Then, in the 2nd frame of the main MovieClip to the 3th frame, is the "walk to the left" animation.

At the 3rd frame of the MovieClip, I have this action:
while (mann1_anim == 2) {

This should loop the walk to the left animation to frame 22 of the movie, cause in frame 22 of the movie, when the tween animation stops, is this action:
mann1_anim = 1;

So then, when the tween animation stops, the mann symbol should return to the stand animation (frame 1). Well, that was a lot of explenation, and here is the problem. When I test the movie, the main runs its complete animation all the time! I have uploaded my work file(fla) here [URL].

ActionScript 2.0 :: MovieClip Animation Stops After Assigning Instance Name

Sep 22, 2009

I have an all flash website I am finishing. On the "index" page of it, there are 7 buttons all pointing to different painting galleries on another page (or another MC in this case).

These 7 buttons happen to be movieclips so that I can have animation on rollover and rollout. A sample of the current AS2 code for them is below:

on (rollOver) {


In this case, on the index page there is a movieclip with successful animation on rollover/rollout. I assign this clip the instance name of "gallery0" and when clicked, goes to a separate page showing the first gallery.

My problem is this, whenever I do assigned the instance name to any of the 7 movieclips, the animation no longer works. It simply sits there in the default state and acts as it should as far as navigation goes.

ActionScript 1/2 :: OnRelease GetURL Not Working With MovieClip Animation

Dec 22, 2009

I am new to Flash/Actionscript and am having problems getting some movieclips to link to different URLs on release. I am able to get them to animate, and I am able to get them to link to an html page in the same folder, but I can't get both functionalities to work at the same time. I've tried putting the actionscript in the instance object, in the action layer, and other things and nothing seems to work!?

Here is the link to the source file: [URL] believe that the actionscripting needs to be done in the "banners" movieclip, but it could also be the "Symbol 3" movieclip. Here is also a link to the .swf [URL]. See, if you mouse over the first two clips, they animate, but they do not go to the HTML page if you click on them [URL]. The third clip will go to the page success1.html in the same folder if you click on it, but it does not animate on mouse over.
