Tween nano - Looping

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am sure this is something that is quite simple, however I am a newbie and would like to know how I loop the following code so that my animation keeps repeating. Would I need to rewrite the whole thing? I am new to actionscript, greensock is amazing!



import com.greensock.*;

import com.greensock.easing.*;


//Train tween

TweenNano.to(train, 0.75, {x:400, ease:Quad.easeOut});


//Rotation 1 text tween in

TweenNano.to(mc, 1, {x:20, ease:Quad.easeOut});

//Rotation 1 text tween out

TweenNano.to(mc, 1, {delay: 3, x:800});


//Destination text tween in

TweenNano.to(destination,1, {delay: 4,x:20, ease:Quad.easeOut});


//Speed text tween in

TweenNano.to(speed, 1, { x:235, delay: 4, ease:Quad.easeOut});

//Speed text tween out

TweenNano.to(speed, 1, {delay: 7, x:800});


//Price text tween in

TweenNano.to(price, 1, {delay: 7, x:240, ease:Quad.easeOut});


TweenNano.to(booknow, 1, {delay: 7,scaleX:1, scaleY:1, alpha:1});

In order to have the animation loop, 2 things need to occur:


1: the initial starting positions of all of your objects need to be reset

2: the tweens need to be re-created.


The easiest way to accomplish this is as follows:


1 - keep frame 1 of your timeline blank

2 - place your assets and animation code in frame 2 (be sure to add a stop() action)

3 - have your last TweenNano use an onComplete callback that advances the main timeline back to frame 1 where everything gets nuked and then when the playhead reaches frame 2 you assets will be back where they should start and the code will run fresh again.


a simple cs4 fla/swf is attached


import com.greensock.*;
import com.greensock.easing.*;
var delay:Number = 0;
TweenNano.to(mc1, 1, {x:300});
delay += 1;
TweenNano.to(mc1, 1, {scaleX:2, scaleX:2, delay:delay, overwrite:false});
delay += 1;
TweenNano.to(mc2, 2, {x:400, delay:delay});
delay +=2 ;
TweenNano.to(mc2, 2, {scaleX:.5, scaleY:.5, delay:delay,  overwrite:false, onComplete:play});


if you don't want to jump between frames you would have to create a function that resets all the values of all the objects that are being tweened and have a second function that creates all the TweenNano tweens which can be quite a bit of work for elaborate sequences.
