Mouse Targeting


Need some help! Im not trying to copy, but i seen a navigation menu system on a really nice site and was wandering if anyone with coding experience could show me how to duplicate such a navigation.

The site is a

Any and all assistance is appreciated and thank you in advance.


The main menu on the site has a basic follow the mouse movieclip, however if you notice there is a little bounce effect or offset that plays along with mouse. To me that looks like inertia. This effect requires quite a bit of code, and I believe there is a tutorial on it on this site.

Basic code for a movieclip to follow the mouse:

this._x = _root._xmouse;
this._y = _root._ymouse;

Hope this helps.


Actually inertia has to do with speed, what they use is elasticity. I don’t mean to try to prove you wrong iceman, but I didn’t want BrazenBlaq looking for the wrong tutorials.

Either way, there is going to be a bit of coding involved.

your right I was thinking of elasticity but wrote inertia for some weird reason, lostinbeta is right.
