Hi there!


I have many shapes in EaselJS -not spritesheet, only shapes- (shape_1, shape_2, ..., shape_n) which are different frames of the same object and I want to animate them with TweenLite to display all the frames (1,2,3,4,...), like an animated movieclip in flash.



I have seen that with CreateJS TweenJS works this code:


to display sequencially all the shapes...


Is there any equivalent in TweenLite?


Best Regards

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums,


Unfortunately I am not familiar enough with the EaselJS API to understand what that code does. I tried looking for some documentation on "state" but came up short. From the code you provided I do not know what state, t, or shape0 are. 


It would really help if you could provide a super simple CodePen demo that shows what that code does: http://greensock.com/forums/topic/9002-read-this-first-how-to-create-a-codepen-demo/


TweenLite can animate any numeric property of any JavaScript object so it naturally handles most easelJS properties without any special plugins or tricks. I just don't know enough about what you are doing to provide decent help.


if you just need to tween through frames of a MovieClip, you can probably tween a value of a generic object and then pass that value to gotoAndStop() using an onUpdate callback. Again, if you provide a very simple example it will be much easier for us to help.
