I have the ‘Growing’ Tribal art at the start of my Flash intro - I am currently in the progress of making v2 of the Flash Website.
I’m just wondering, how else can I achieve this growing effect?
This is how I’m doing it atm:
- Create the Tribal art as Vector in Flash
- Create a separate .swf file that has Frame.By.Frame animation which places a new “dot/round circle” movieclip on each frame, slowly masking the entire shape of the Tribal Vector.
- Import the .swf file and set it as a mask on top of the Tribal Art.
Reason for this is I find by having Frame.By.Frame animation it is very cpu intensive - I end up having a lot of duplicated “dot/round circle” movieclips on the final frame which isn’t too healthy for the cpu.
It would be fantastic if I could create one circle and tell one point of that circle to stretch and cover and follow a guide (the shape of the tribal art).
Please help? Any ideas? Any suggestions? It would be greatly appreciated! :D!
