PathFollower doesn't rotate correctly with Starling

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

i'm about to switch to Starling Framework for my new projects.

For a game i animated an object with autorotate=true like this so far (simplified):

points = [new Point(50, 35), new Point(500, 35), new Point(500, 300)];
path = new LinePath2D(points);
var f:PathFollower = path.addFollower(object, 0, true, 90);
tween = TweenMax.to(f, time, {progress: 1, onUpdate:onUpdateTween, ease:Linear.easeNone});

The object started with an initial rotation of 90° to the right and after reaching the 2nd point it

was rotated again by 90° for reaching the final point.

 

Now with Starling the same approach doesn't work anymore, since there rotations are calculated

using radians. Therefore the rotation at point 2 will not look correctly anymore:

points = [new Point(50, 35), new Point(500, 35), new Point(500, 300)];
path = new LinePath2D(points);
var f:PathFollower = path.addFollower(object, 0, true, deg2rad(90)); // this allows the initial rotation
tween = TweenMax.to(f, time, {progress: 1, onUpdate:onUpdateTween, ease:Linear.easeNone});

 

Is there a way how rotation can be handled correctly for a Starling Image/Sprite object with Greensock ?

Btw. how can a LinePath2D object be added to a Starling Sprite ? At the moment i get the error "Implicit coercion of a value of type com.greensock.motionPaths:LinePath2D to an unrelated type starling.display:DisplayObject."

 

Thank you for your help.

Ok i found the solution (quite easy): Override the rotation setter in the class to animate:

override public function set rotation(value:Number):void {
   super.rotation = deg2rad(value);
}

 

If someone knows the solution about adding a LinePath2D object, i'm still interested :-P
