  1. AhHa not all v11 are the same. The one I just downloaded has pointIsLocal now I just have to get the thing to scale up.
  2. It didn't scale up but I haven't tried to fix that yet and I can't get pointIsLocal to work I downloaded the latest version but I already have it v11 I looked in the transformAroundPoint class but didn't see a pointIsLocal method. Isn't v11 the latest version?
  3. I found out why I didn't see anything. It wasn't scaling so I set the scale to 1 when I instantiated. It isn't working as I expected but I might be able to figure it out on my own.
  4. I replaced the first line of code below with what I thought would work but nothing happens I press the button and nothing not even a error message. //TweenLite.to(bio, 3, {transformAroundCenter:{x:450, y:400, scaleX:1, scaleY:1, delay:1}, rotation:1440, ease:Back.easeOut, easeParams:[.7]}); TweenLite.to(bio, 3, {transformAroundPoint:{point:new Point(383,307), scaleX:1, scaleY:1, rotation:1440, pointIsLocal:true}, ease:Back.easeOut, easeParams:[.7]});
  5. I have a MC that can be viewed here http://www.jimslounge.com/erikMay27/testBio4.swf It rotates around center as I wanted it to do. When I added a scrolling text field I get this http://www.jimslounge.com/erikMay27/testBio5.swf the center of the MC changes as the 800 px high text field scrolls. I was wondering if there was anyway I could transformAroundCenter using the center of the MC as it was before adding the TextField. import com.greensock.*; import com.greensock.easing.*; import com.greensock.plugins.*; import com.droolpigs.*; TweenPlugin.activate([TransformAroundPointPlugin, TransformAroundCenterPlugin, ShortRotationPlugin]); var textAS:TextAutoScroll = new TextAutoScroll("bio.txt", 30, 420, 700, 800); var bio:Bio2 = new Bio2(); bio.scaleX =.001; bio.scaleY =.001; bio.x=450; bio.y=400; bio.addChild(textAS); // dragdrop stuff bio.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, drag); bio.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, drop); load_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, loadAbout); unload_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, unloadAbout); function drag(e:MouseEvent):void { e.currentTarget.startDrag(); } function drop(e:MouseEvent):void { e.currentTarget.stopDrag(); } function loadAbout(e:MouseEvent):void { addChild(bio); TweenLite.to(bio, 3, {transformAroundCenter:{x:450, y:400, scaleX:1, scaleY:1, delay:1}, rotation:1440, ease:Back.easeOut, easeParams:[.7]}); } function unloadAbout(e:MouseEvent):void { if(bio){ TweenLite.to(bio, 2.5, {transformAroundCenter:{x:450, y:400, scaleX:.001, scaleY:.001}, rotation:-1440, onComplete:removeit}); } } function removeit():void { removeChild(bio); }
  6. Sorry I have a bad habit of skimming through things and assuming I know what was written. I put the new version online and it's working great. I owe you at least a keg of beer.
  7. I have a slide show which greensock helped me with he pretty much rewrote it it's very cool the way he did it . It slices and splices in arrays (please excuse my ignorant explanation I haven't gotten around to examining how it works in detail. My only issue with it is I don't think it scales well. I feed in 182 images with a combined total of 10.4 meg when the swf loads it uses 124 meg then it adds about 1.25 meg memory as each image is displayed until it reaches 293 meg at which point gc kicks in and keeps it there. import com.greensock.*; import com.greensock.easing.*; import com.greensock.loading.*; import flash.display.*; import flash.geom.*; import com.greensock.events.LoaderEvent; import com.greensock.loading.display.ContentDisplay; var duration:Number = .5; var timeline:TimelineMax; var bars:Bars = new Bars(); bars.cacheAsBitmap = true; holderBG.addChild(bars); createTimeline(); function createTimeline():void { timeline = new TimelineMax({repeat:1, repeatDelay:5, yoyo:true, onComplete:showRandom, paused:true}); for (var count:int = 1; count <= 10; count++) { var mc:MovieClip = bars["bar" + count]; timeline.insert(TweenMax.from(mc, duration, {x:"64", alpha:0, ease:Cubic.easeOut}), (count - 1) * 0.1); } } var xmlLoader:XMLLoader = new XMLLoader("bioPics-data.xml", {onComplete:onXMLLoadComplete, autoDispose:true});; xmlLoader.load(); var images:Array; var displayQueue:Array; //same as "images" array initially, but each time we show a random image, we remove it from this array so that we can make sure the same image never shows twice in a row. We repopulate the array by slicing the images array once displayQueue is empty. var curSlide:ContentDisplay; function onXMLLoadComplete(e:Event):void { var queue:LoaderMax = new LoaderMax({maxConnections:1}); var nativeHolderSize:Rectangle = holderBG.getBounds(holderBG); for each (var image:XML in xmlLoader.content.image) { queue.append( new ImageLoader(image.@src, {centerRegistration:true, width:nativeHolderSize.width, height:nativeHolderSize.height, scaleMode:"proportionalInside"}) ); } images = queue.content; //a LoaderMax's "content" is an array of all of its child loaders' content. In this case, a bunch of ContentDisplay objects. displayQueue = images.slice(); //choose a random image to load first... var randomIndex:int = int(Math.random() * displayQueue.length); displayQueue[randomIndex].loader.prioritize(false); //ensures that it is first in the loading queue displayQueue[randomIndex].loader.addEventListener(LoaderEvent.COMPLETE, startSlideshow, false, 0, true); //we just want to wait for the first one to load before beginning. The rest can load in the background. displayQueue.splice(randomIndex, 1); queue.load(); } function startSlideshow(event:LoaderEvent):void { displaySlide(event.target.content); } function showRandom():void { if (displayQueue.length == 0) { displayQueue = images.slice(); } var randomIndex:int = int(Math.random() * displayQueue.length); displaySlide( displayQueue[randomIndex] ); displayQueue.splice(randomIndex, 1); } function displaySlide(slide:ContentDisplay):void { if (curSlide != null) { holderBG.removeChild(curSlide); } curSlide = slide; holderBG.addChild(slide); slide.cacheAsBitmap = true; slide.mask = bars; bars.width = slide.rawContent.width; bars.height = slide.rawContent.height; timeline.restart(); } any ideas? I was hoping to use this on a larger slide show I support it presents about 1000 images that average about 150k.
  8. oops my fault I was pointing to a old greensock folder form before I became shockingly green. greensock is the best!
  9. When I try to activate TransformAroundPointPlugin and TransformAroundCenterPlugin I get a 1120 Access of undefined property msg
  10. WOW! This goes way beyond what I was hoping for. You've showed me a much better way to write slide shows I'll study this code thoroughly and go through some of the gs tutorials as well. Thanks so much.
  11. Closer still we've got everything working except the transition tween...see attachment
  12. Thanks for the help I think we're getting close. I removed some extraneous code and tried to implement your changes.

  13. I'm very new to everything greensock. I built a slideshow with a greensock tween the tween is way cool. You can see the slideshow by going here: http://www.droolpigs.com/ and clicking the About Us button. The slideshow is fine except that every now and then a slide doesn't align. I was told that I might be able to fix the problem by using loaderMax. this is my original code: import com.greensock.*; import com.greensock.easing.*; import flash.display.*; import flash.utils.*; import flash.events.*;

  14. cool this is better than Christmas.
  15. oops that was dumb. I changed to this import com.demos.*; var displayImage:ImageLoader_Enhanced = new ImageLoader_Enhanced(); addChild(displayImage); but still nothing. I also tried as a document class, same blank screen. it would be nice if there were demo fla's
  16. I copied the code for ImageLoader_Enhanced class form a LoaderMax tutorial I found on the GreenSock site this is the code: package com.demos { import com.greensock.loading.ImageLoader; import flash.display.Sprite; public class ImageLoader_Enhanced extends Sprite { public function ImageLoader_Enhanced() { var image:ImageLoader = new ImageLoader("bio_pics/0001.jpg", {container:this, x:30, y:100, width:750, height:350, scaleMode:"proportionalInside", centerRegistration:true, blendMode:"overlay", bgColor:0x000000, rotation:0}); image.load(); } } } I created a folder in my com folder called demos and put it there as ImageLoader_Enhanced.as I then created a Fla in the same folder as the com and bio_pics folders. In that FLA I run this code: import com.demos.*; var displayImage:ImageLoader_Enhanced = new ImageLoader_Enhanced(); displayImage; I get no error message so I guess it works but no image is displayed.
  17. never mind I was trying to make it too complicated it works great with just 1 TextField...thanks again!
  18. I'm trying but it's not working. I still cant get a seamless transition. As soon as it repeats it blanks out the text on stage. Isn't there a way to make textfield1 position below textfield2 as soon as it's moved beyond the mask? I've done that using a timer and as3 before it was pretty simple. here's the output: http://www.jimslounge.com/textScroll2.swf here's the code: import com.greensock.*; import com.greensock.easing.*; import com.greensock.plugins.*; import flash.events.*; import flash.net.*; import flash.text.*; import flash.display.*; var myFont:Font2 = new Font2(); var extLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader(); var req:URLRequest = new URLRequest("bio.txt"); var tf1:TextField = new TextField(); var tf2:TextField = new TextField(); var tf3:TextField = new TextField(); var msk1:Sprite = new Sprite(); var msk2:Sprite = new Sprite(); var myFormat:TextFormat = new TextFormat(); var tl:TimelineMax = new TimelineMax({repeat:-1}); tf1.x =50; tf1.y =250; tf1.width = 650; tf1.height = 500; tf1.multiline=true; tf1.wordWrap=true; tf1.condenseWhite=true; tf2.x =50; tf2.y =750; tf2.width = 650; tf2.height = 500; tf2.multiline=true; tf2.wordWrap=true; tf2.condenseWhite=true; tf3.x =50; tf3.y =253; tf3.width = 650; tf3.height = 20; tf3.htmlText = 'droolpigs.com | myspace site'; this.addChildAt(tf1, 0); this.addChildAt(tf2, 0); addChild(tf3); msk1.graphics.beginFill(0x000000); msk1.graphics.drawRect(0, 0, 650, 170); msk1.x = 50; msk1.y = 80; msk1.graphics.endFill(); msk2.graphics.beginFill(0x000000); msk2.graphics.drawRect(0, 0, 650, 170); msk2.x = 50; msk2.y = 80; msk2.graphics.endFill(); extLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, textReady); myFormat.font = myFont.fontName; myFormat.size = 14; myFormat.leading = 2.5; tf1.defaultTextFormat=myFormat; tf1.embedFonts=true; tf1.alpha=1; tf2.defaultTextFormat=myFormat; tf2.embedFonts=true; tf2.alpha=1; extLoader.load(req); function textReady(e:Event):void { tf1.cacheAsBitmap=true; tf2.cacheAsBitmap=true; msk1.cacheAsBitmap=true; msk2.cacheAsBitmap=true; tf1.mask=msk1; tf2.mask=msk2; addChild(msk1); addChild(msk2); tf1.htmlText=e.target.data; tf2.htmlText=e.target.data; } tl.insertMultiple( TweenMax.allTo([tf1, tf2], 20, {y:"-1000", ease:Linear.easeNone}));
  19. I think this is waht I'm looking for I'll try it out in the morning. Thanks!
  20. A seamless loop is what I'm thinking of. can I handle the 2 textfields with 2 tweens appended to TimelineMax?
  21. I have a text scroller here: http://www.jimslounge.com/textScroll2.swf when it finishes I want it to start over. this is my tween: TweenLite.to(tf, 40, {y:-800, ease:Linear.easeNone}); I tried using TimelineMax to make it repeat but it didn't work like I thought it would.
  22. It starts out too fast and ends up too slow. You can see it here http://www.jimslounge.com/textScroll2.swf here's the code: import com.greensock.*; import com.greensock.easing.*; import com.greensock.plugins.*; import flash.events.*; import flash.net.*; import flash.text.*; import flash.display.*; var myFont:Font2 = new Font2(); var extLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader(); var req:URLRequest = new URLRequest("bio.txt"); var tf:TextField = new TextField(); var msk:Sprite = new Sprite(); var myFormat:TextFormat = new TextFormat(); var timeline:TimelineMax; tf.x =50; tf.y =80; tf.width = 300; tf.height = 1300; tf.multiline=true; tf.wordWrap=true; tf.condenseWhite=true; addChild(tf); msk.graphics.beginFill(0x000000); msk.graphics.drawRect(0, 0, 300, 150); msk.x = 50; msk.y = 80; msk.graphics.endFill(); extLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, textReady); myFormat.font = myFont.fontName; myFormat.size = 14; myFormat.leading = 2.5; tf.defaultTextFormat=myFormat; tf.embedFonts=true; tf.alpha=1; extLoader.load(req); function textReady(e:Event):void { tf.cacheAsBitmap=true; msk.cacheAsBitmap=true; tf.mask=msk; tf.htmlText=e.target.data; addChild(msk); } TweenLite.to(tf, 50, {y:-1400});
