Part 2: Making the Animations
Make sure your in the train movie clip and select one door. Press an arrow key (left or right) depending on where you want the door to go. move it 5 places and do the same for the rest. Make a new keyframe (F6) and do the same. Keep repeating the last two steps until the doors are, how can I say this, until they are at the other side of where they were, check the .zip file for a better explanation. put a stop(); action on the first frame when the doors are closed and one on the last. Now we have to put the doors back where they were. It should have taken you about 5 frames to open them. now, copy each of the frames to make it look like there going back. put a stop action at the end and now its time for the longest bit. If you can get this to do a motion tween, then its easy. I couldn't so I had to do it the long way. Move the train 10 spaces to the left each frame. by the time your train is past the end about 15 places, drag the whole lot to the other side and put the train going back into the station. You should be on about frame 95 in total from the doors and stuff.
I just thought id put this in here for those of you who downloaded the .zip file. The reason I have 2 layers in the train movie clip is because the doors kept dragging the train with them so I put them in separate layers.If your doing it from scratch and your having the same problem, split them into 2 layers, it will hopefully make it easier.
Put a stop action at the end and get ready for the actionscripting.
