Object Animation

On the main timeline we need to ensure the Red Box movie clip is on the stage. If it's not you can do this by opening the Library (Ctrl+L) and draging the symbol onto the stage. Once it is on the stage we can move on to the other symbols.

You already now how to animate one symbol from the last page. All we are going to do here is replicated the animation process for the yellow and blue boxes as well. But instead of creating a movie clip to house the animation, you can simply create it on the main timeline. The reason for this is both the blue and yellow boxes won't be looping.

In the red box animation we simply animated from point A to point C. For the animation for the blue box and the yellow box it uses the same principle except we have added a point B (a keyframe in the middle). All we are doing here is animating the object from point A to B then from B to C. Once you have created and animated the boxes, your main timeline should look something like this.

Notice how the blue and yellow boxes are animated in the same way but the go to frame 31 instead of frame 30. This is to give the MC "Red box" enough frames to play. If there wasn't enough frames your aniation wouldn't work properly.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
