Making a MC follow the mouse.
This tutorial shows you how to get a MC (movie clip) to follow your mouse. When the MC is far away from your mouse it moves fast, slowing down the closer it gets until finally stopping when it reaches your cursor. This gives it a kind of elastic feeling! It's a nice effect which I like to use to keep people playing when preloading but can be used for lots of other things with the help of a bit of imagination.
First of all we need the MC wich is going to follow our mouse. Draw a circle using the circle drawing tool in the toolbox and turn it into a MC by marking it (ctrl+A) and then pressing F8. Give your new MC a name and press ok. To now give our MC the necessary actionscript to define its behavior right click on it and choose actions from the drop down menu. To now be able to write your actionscript open the options menu (little black arrow at the top right of the actions window) and switch to the expert mode or press ctrl+E.
