Nesting Movie Clips for Complex Animations
Flash and Motion Tweens are a great combination for easily creating animation. But how do you create more complex animations such as adding a walking cycle to a moving character? One way would be to use nested movie clips. Let´s take a look at a simplified example.
Controlling the Alpha Property for Fade-in Effect
In this tutorial, we will program a fade-in effect for a movie clip as it is added to the Display List. We will tell Flash to increase the Alpha for the movie clip progressively until the movie clip is 100% visible.
Remove Movie Clip with ActionScript 3
