Im still using Flash 8 and Im not so familiar on Flash CS3, we are now looking forward on FLASH CS4. This version of flash is the ultimate, much awaited version. This version of the Flash IDE, Flash 10 “diesel”, brand-new a time beam co-ordination – model. Yes modelling like 3d software!
Thank God, this version has 64-bit support, the New ‘object-based’ tween model claimed to be much easier to use, efficient, subtle and very impressive result. You can directly manipulate objects on the Stage without needing to always think about keyframes.
The new tween model tweens a single object on a span. This affords many new possibilities, like swapping out the instances, move the tween around the Timeline easily, apply the tween to multiple objects, saved as a Preset, scale the tween longer or shorter so its slower or faster, and so on.
IK (Inverse Kinematics) Tweens or The Bone Tool
Taking a cue from 3D Animation programs’ character rigging and the After Effect’s Puppet Tool, the new Bones Tool will aid users to create chain-like effects with a series of linked objects or to quickly distort single objects. Assign joints like a human skeleton or pivots and hinges akin to machinery to breathe life into your artwork. Using inverse kinematics, linked items move relative to one another employing natural physics. Adding a further element of interactivity is the Runtime option, which enables users to control and interact with the Bones rigged objects while the content plays in Adobe Flash Player.
