  1. I need to do an endless horizontal scroll of elements within a parent MovieClip.


    No matter what ever method I try, an element of 'drift' occurs and eventually the elements start to overlap.


    I've tried using relative recursive tweening for each element according but this method seems prone to quite a bit of error after repeated starts and stops.



    function doScroll():void {

    TweenLite.to(this, .25, {x:"20", ease:Linear.easeNone,onUpdate:checkPos,onComplete:doScroll});


    //CODE END

    I've reverted to doing absolute tweens to a predefined position using a contant speed. This seems to be more accurate but still some 'drift' occurs.



    //_dest is predefined

    var speed:Number = 500;

    var dist:Number = this.x - _dest;

    var distAbs:Number = dist < 0 ? -dist : dist;

    //kludge to get constant velocity by recalculating time every frame

    _time = distAbs / speed;

    TweenLite.to(this, _time, {x:_dest, ease:Linear.easeNone,onComplete:reset});

    //CODE END

    Thought this should be very simple. Can anyone point me to any possible tutorials or make any suggestions?


    Any help appreciated.

  2. I've used and loved BulkLoader for many years now. Its extremely powerful. But one of things I wasn't crazy about(in additon to the bloated file size) was the need to always daisy chain my loaders, first loading my config XML, grabing asset path information, and THEN actually preloading my assets.


    With the new intelligent autoload feature of the XMLLoader class this is no longer necessary.

    Fantastic work Jack!

  3. Hi

    I have a simple crossfade sequence defined using a series of TimeLineLite.insert() methods.


    The sequence plays fine.


    But getting it to repeat using restart doesn't work for me.


    Is it recommended to always use TimeLineMax when you have to repeat the entire timeline?

  4. Hi

    Not quite an expert yet with Timeline Lite but have a lite timeline (pun intended) for an as2 banner ad project.

    In the following my clip fades in, but doesn't fade out....can anyone tell me why???




    var timeline:TimelineLite = new TimelineLite();

    timeline.addLabel("f1b", 3);



    timeline.append( new TweenLite(F1a, 1, {_alpha:"100"}) );

    timeline.insert(new TweenLite(F1a, 1, {_alpha:"0"}), "f1b");


    //CODE END
