I want to make an animated header for my site. Say 700x100.
What I want to accomplish is take approx. 20 images and have them appear in this space at random spots, and moving from where they appear to 1 direction, then disappearing. over and over again.
the images need to appear at a random point at 0% transparency (invisible), then as they move towards their designated random point they become transparent to 100% then "disappear" as they reach their destination.
i would like to completely randomize this. randomize where they appear, random the length of "visibility", and random the direction they are going.
i don't want the images too move TOO Fast or TOO slow, and i don't want them to "appear" and then "disappear" too fast or too slow either. i do want a threshold of 'visibility" and "movement".
i have no idea how to accomplish this, but it would seem not too hard. i believe i need to call math.random for position, transparency and where they "move" to.
is this easy to do? could anyone help me with the code to do this?
i would greatly appreciate it. some guidance or hints. maybe exisitng code to look at if this has already been done before ? thanks!!!!
