  1. Hello, We have been using the Greensock library in an Adobe AIR application for a while now with really no problems. We decided to try our Windows based application on an Android device and found that most things work quite well. The only problem we are seeing with the Greensock library turns up when we use scale effects. By this, I mean any time I attempt to scale a SplitTextField from say 4 to 1, the system lags. If I scale multiple SplitTextFields at once and by letter, then system can almost crash. The board we are using is running one of the latest version of Android and is capa
  2. Hello, I am having a little difficulty with the SplitTextField and was looking for some assistance. My goal is to animate a SplitTextField from the right portion of the screen to the left. I am using a font size of 8 and have done everything I can to reduce the anti aliasing. I am using TweenMax to animate the text. The Problem: I am noticing that as the text animates across the screen, the letters do not all move in sync with each other. For example, if I have "Hello World", sometimes the e will move before the H and overlap it a little. On the next frame update, the H wil
  3. Thank you for your help Carl. I have a couple methods I might try and implement to fix the issue I am having. Unfortunately, the entire system is built on Flex objects, so redesigning it might be a little difficult. Thank you!
  4. Hello, I am having a little trouble using the FlexBlitMask to scroll an RSS feed. My goal is to create a scrolling RSS feed on the screen. I found an issue with TextFields a long time ago which basically causes the object to behave odd when too much text is asked to be rendered on the screen. Sometimes the text will stop at some character point and begin printing over itself. Other times, it displays nothing. The way I got around this was to create an HGroup, cut the text into blocks of say 100 characters, then as they are scrolling, queue them in and out of the HGroup.
  5. Alright, testing complete. The new method works just fine. It should look something like this: public static function SpinClockwise(target:Object, time:Number):TimelineMax{ TweenPlugin.activate([TransformAroundPointPlugin]); var targetX:int = (target.width /2) + target.x; var targetY:int = (target.height /2) + target.y; var timeline:TimelineMax = new TimelineMax(); timeline.add(TweenMax.to(target, time, {transformAroundPoint:{point:new Point(targetX, targetY),rotation:360},ease:Linear.easeNone})); return timeline; } Our application cannot delay animations as it is mission critical t
  6. I believe I may have a solution. I can pull the target.width and target.height from within the function myself and calculate the center. Then I simply call TransformAroundPoint and use the values I gathered. That should work and will give me the control I need to make this happen. Initial tests are good, but I will post back after some further testing. Thank you!
  7. Hello Jack, Thank you for the quick response! It is returning 0,0 as the width and height. I tried adding image.invalidateSize(); and image.validateNow();. No change. I tried manually setting the width and height of the image before I called SpinClockwise(...) no change. I also tried manually setting target.width and target.height just before I called the code you gave me inside the SpinClockwise function, no change. Are there any workarounds for this? Thank you for your attention and assistance.
  8. Hello, I am having some issues with some objects working differently when displayed on desktop compared to mobile devices. For example, the Spark Image will Transform-Around-Center correctly when used on mobile, but when used on AIR Desktop, it ignores the center and transforms around 0,0. I have created a very basic sample program which illustrates this and which I can make available if needed. The code simply goes like this: protected function windowedapplication1_creationCompleteHandler(event:FlexEvent):void { var image:Image = new Image(); // Create the new image
