Change a tween in timeline before reversing

Recommended Posts

I have a situation where I have a TimelineMax that I've created with a sequence of TweenLites. I'd like to reverse back through it but before I do so, I need to change the first TweenLite in the array (which will be now be the last) and swap it out with something else.


For example, lets say there is mc at x:0, y:0, and I do this:


myTimeline.append(new TweenLite(mc, .2, {x:100, y:100}));
myTimeline.append(new TweenLite(mc, .2, {scaleX:10, scaleY:10}));
myTimeline.append(new TweenLite(mc, .2, {x:0, y:200}));


Then, I want to reverse it after its done playing, but instead of it going back to x:0, y:0, I want it to end at x:500, y:500, and not pass through x:0, y:0 (its original starting point) at all.


Is that possible? I've tried using append and prepend before I reverse it, but to no avail.


Thank you.

Sure, you could kill() that first tween and insert() another one that goes to the values you want. It'd probably be best to do a TweenMax.fromTo() so that you can control the starting and ending values in this case. Kinda like:


var firstTween:TweenLite = new TweenLite(mc, .2, {x:100, y:100})
myTimeline.append(...other tweens...);

//then later...
firstTween = TweenMax.fromTo(mc, .2, {x:500, y:500}, {x:100, y:100});
myTimeline.insert(firstTween, 0);
