View Full Version : Pictures are shifting wierd when in motion.

Im not sure why, and im not sure if you can tell me the problem either without having the working file. My problem is when you visit this site you can see that when the flash loads and the pics are in motion they have a "shifty" looking move to it.

Not sure if you can tell, but how do i make the animation smoother? I have made one in 24fps but it doesnt seem to help. thanks for any suggestions.

Higher framerates help, but what are you using to move them? Are you using Tweens or some other system?

i am using tween to move in and out of the picture. Should i be using action script to zoom?

Im so stupid i realized i didnt post the site, i should know better


sorry, forgive my idiocy!

I'm not sure because I've never compared them, but I have found the motion Tween using Actionscript to be more useful and customizable. I'm not sure on the actual effectiveness of actionscript or timeline based tweens, but this is a problem that happens with rasterized images. Are your images the same size as the stage, or are they much larger and resized?

they are much larger.. my pictures are


while my stage is


for the tweens, to get the affect of zooming in, i make the pictures smaller then go to thier original size. I see flash like this before and everything looks so smooth.. look at this page, its flawless


I want it to look like that.

Try resizing the images, because the extra pixels are what Flash is not sure how to handle. Flash struggles a little bit with images, does very well with vectors though. So resize the images to the stage size, or whatever they need to fit and zoom in from there. If that doesn't work, try making the images just a little larger than the stage so when you zoom in the images are fullsize when done zooming.

I will look into it, i just want the cleanest look i can possibly get.
