View Full Version : Shape Tween?

03-27-2009, 04:58 PM
I have a logo that when "on mouse over" I want to make it look like it's inflating. So if you can imagine, the effect being like the logo looking flat and on mouse over it almost bubbles.

I have 2 images of both states, the logo being "flat" and the logo being "bubbled" and was wondering if I can make a shape tween to accomplish the effect? I tried that but didn't work too well... Just wondering if you have any other suggestions?

You can accomplish that effect my making a button.
Instead of converting your image to a movieclip or graphic, as you normally would, rightclick the image --> Convert to symbol... --> button instead.

Afterwards, doubbleclick it and watch the timeline - good luck!

Thanks for the reply... What about the "steps" in between? I don't just want the image to go from flat to "bubble" quickly... I want a smooth transition...

The reason I mentioned shape tween is because you often see tutorials showing a circle "tweened" into a square... so the "tween" takes care of every step in between from the circle to the square.

I'm trying to accomplish the same thing with the logo... just from one image to the other.

Ah sorry, I hadn't realised it was that effect you wanted. Then I'm unfortunately unable to help :(

But maybe this can guide you in the right direction:
