Motion tweening is a step by step-by-step tutorial on creating a simple motion tween.

Motion tweening is a basic animation technique used in Flash. It is defined by the properties such as size, position, rotation and skew for an instance, type block, or group.

Step 1- Place the object on the work area, Right- click on the keyframe and choose “create motion tween”.  Refer Figure 1.

Step 2- Insert a keyframe into any other frame.  Refer Figure 2

Step 3 - Modify the object's size, rotation, or skew. Refer Figure 3

Step 4 - Choose Window > Panels > Frame.  Refer Figure 4.

Step 5 – For Tweening, select Motion.   Refer Figure 5

Step 6 – If you modified the size of the object in step 4, select Scale. This is to tween the size of the selected item.  

Step 7 – To adjust the rate of transformation between the tweened frames, click and drag the arrow next to the Easing value or enter a value. (Refer to Figure 5) :
Figure 5. Easing

  • If you would like to start the motion tween rapidly and decelerate the tween toward the end of the animation, drag the slider down or enter a positive value between 1 and 100.

  • To start the motion tween slowly and then accelerate the tween toward the end of the animation, drag the slider up or enter a value between -1 and -100.
If you use Easing, you will notice that it generates a more natural look of acceleration or deceleration by gradually adjusting the rate of transformation.
So, that is how you create a simple Motion tween. Try it out!
