TweenLite, TweenFilterLite, meet my other good friend… trace.

One of the projects we are finishing up involves an adapted flash flip-book incorporated into a custom-made website with embedded video. One of the tricky things has been processing the complicated flip-book code that is rich in math and physics. We must calculate the proper rotation of the image and shadow and mask to imitate the physical movement of a page in a book or magazine. Luckily, I haven’t had the need to alter much of that coding but have been digging deep into the loading process of the individual pages for it to run at optimal levels for our application. Using the actionscript “trace” command, I can quickly display a statement whenever something happens in an actionscript process. This way, it is easy to figure out when something is happening according to an animation or event on the flash stage.
