| For the last few tutorials, we have been working on the page template for our Kwik book app. We have one more thing to add to the template, which is the linear animation that emulates a page turn.|
We will want this animation to play immediately when the page loads. We already have the graphic for the animation on the kwkpgTurn layer in page1. Also this layer has been set as a Shared Asset so that it will work through out the book app.
At this point, we will be creating a very simple animation and will be using most of the default settings. But we will be learning a lot about linear animations as we add many of them to the book.
A linear animation moves an object from one point on the screen to another. Therefore the main settings for a linear animation are the start and end points. Kwik will automatically set the starting point for the animation as the current position of the object on the layer. We will need to set the end point for the animation.
We will also set the duration for the animation in seconds, as this will determine how fast the object moves. Finally, we will set the animation to start when the page loads.
