    question about rotating image in Flash

    Can someone answer my question??

    I have an image that I have imported into my Flash movie. The image is a wheel and I want to have it rotate a full 360 degrees over a 15 frame movie. Now I have selected a keyframe for each of the 15 frames and set the X coordinate and rotated the wheel a certain amount of degrees. Now this works, but it appears choppy when previewing it. I know you can use motion tweening to move an object, but I wasn't sure about rotating it as well. Is there a simpler way of doing what I described using tweening?? I'm fairly new to Flash - so anyone that may give me an answer - could you explain in detail??

    Thanks,
    Gary

    In the frame tab menu on your right hand side, in the tweening section, you will notice an option near the bottom that says 'rotate'. It let's you select the degree of rotation and how many times.

    Essentially, you could build the first frame, and then the last frame on 15 (that looks the same), and apply the motion tween for all... in the frame tab, leave everything else without numbers, select 'motion' for tween type, and play with the 'rotation' setting (counter-clockwise, clockwise, etc). This will let you accomplish your rotate without building it yourself. Try this, and if you have issues, post again, and we'll walk through it more specifically. Flash can be wacky with it's animation

    THis would be much better as a coded solution but I gatehr as a newcomer to Flash that would be a bit OTT for you right now...?

    In terms of making your movie less 'choppy' try bumping the frame rate up past 30 FPS.
