First off, I new to Flash, but am OK with HTML Js etc and have a couple of newbie questions, which are probably, hopefully easy to answer!
I'm on CS4.
1) What I wish to do, is the "classic" of making lines grow over the page.
I managed this with a rectancgular mask, which I motion tweened over the drawn line in a superimposed mask layer to end up covering, thus revealing all the line elements I wanted to grow. This works, but seems to me to be a bit of a long way round, or is it the way to do it?
2) The next question, is how to make a thicker line grow a distance (I can get this far) and then change angle, say 90 and continue growing in another direction. This stumps me.
I would say these things are similar, but the first would be a precise hairline or 1 pt line and the second would be a lot thicker, painted with the brush, possibly organic and could eventually be used as a mask over the first....?
3) How do I get an animation to play only once!!??
I hope this is understandable. I did a search and couldn't find much, but it is hard to know what to search for!
Many thanks for any pointers!
