View Full Version : Shape tweening

02-19-2002, 02:26 AM
I want to shape tweening(morph) the picture that import as a .png file.
I am aware that the picture must be break apart to do so.
I also checked the "import editable objects" when importing the image.
However, it is not working.
Someone please view the attached file and tell me what is wrong.
Thanks in advance.

you need to use "trace bitmap" and flash is going to hate you for it...

How do you put in the trace bitmap effect?:confused:

select the bitmap, click on modify and then trace bitmap. have a play with the different settings to get the pic u want.

Thanks guys, the morphing works now.
:(Just as Billy T say, flash really hates "trace bitmap". The animation is sooo slow.Not only that, the file size becomes so large!
:confused: I try to change the setting when using the "trace bitmap", but the resulting size and speed more or less the same. Is there any other ways ???
:D Well, here's a sample of my work:
PS: I use the .swf because .fla too big(349K)

flash doesn't hate 'trace bitmap' it just depends on the detail and size of the bitmap and the end result u want after tracing. the less detail, the faster it will run
