Need Help with Actionscripting a growing sphere

I am trying to code a growing sphere and I am having trouble finding a tutorial on how to do it. Does anyone have any suggestions?


I’m assuming you mean an expanding circle with some sort of gradient (to give off the illusion of depth), right? Or are you talking about importing an already-made 3d model?

You were right with your first assumption. I am looking for a series of circles that appear to get bigger and fill the whole screne(canvas size). Do you have any suggestions on how to go about doing that?

you dont necessarily have to use AS, and in this situation it would probably be better not to. just do a simple motion tween. it’s really easy, and it saves processor.


*Note: This will continue to grow regardles of whether the circle is larger than the stage.

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
scalevalue = 10 //this will affect how quickly the movieClip "grows"
this._height += scaleValue;
this._width + = scaleValue;

Thanks a lot guyz, thats what I was looking for.
