Transforming objects uniformly through your timeline


Transforming objects uniformly through your timeline.

There are occasions when you will need to adjust the size of your stage in Flash. When you do this Flash by default will scale from the bottom right. This might leave you with a problem adjusting your animation to fit proportionately to your stage, especially if you have a large complex animation piece. In order to do this you follow these simple steps.

[if !supportMisalignedColumns] [endif]

1. Underneath your timeline there are a series of onion skinning option buttons. Select the one to the farthest right. It will have a “show all layers as outlines” caption associated to it.

[if !vml][endif]

2. Next to the onion skinning button you just pressed is a layer name button with a drop down menu. Select “Onion All” from that drop down menu. This will onion skin every key frame in your timeline. You can adjust the amount of onion skinning by selecting either one of the brackets at the top of the timeline and moving them left or right.

[if !vml][endif]

3. At this point you can select everything on your stage that you would like to transform and manipulate multiple key frames throughout your timeline.

» 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.
