Animating Lines

Ok, I want to do this very very simple animation, but I cant get a thing right. I want vertical lines to start at the top of the screen and drop down, then when they get about 3 inches from the bottom of the screen, they turn to the right and go to the end of the movie. The only way I can do this successfully is to draw the 2 lines off the screen and then like 30 frames later, put them where I want them in place, and create a motion tween. Is that the best way to do it or is there something better?

Thanks again for answering my moronic questions

doing what you said would be the easy way to do it (using tweening)
a bit harder but much better way to do it is to move the lines using actionscript, you change the y position at first, untill you reach the y you want, then you change the x position untill you reach the one you want.
if you have any experience with actionscript, then this should not be soo hard. if you don’t then i doubt you would be able to do it.

in case you can’t do it with actionscript, let me know and i will send you a sample fla of what i believe your trying to do

good luck.
