RE: Can LiveMotion do shape tweens? if so how?

Are you refering to something like morphing the shape into another shape along the timeline? What exactly are you trying to do?

RE: Can LiveMotion do shape tweens? if so how?

(OP)
Yes just a simple shape morph. Morphing one shape to another For example a circle into a square. In Flash it is called a "shape tween" and is very easy. You just have one keyframe that contains the circle then another keyframe that contains the circle and then insert a "shape tween" and that's it. But I can't find a way to do it in Live Motion that simply.
Is it possible?
Thanks
Brad

Well I've been also trying to do the same thing with Live Motion and I don't think it can.  It will tween only if your are making size, rotate, scale and colour changes to it, but not morphing type of tweening.  I think that's where Macromedia has the edge.  I could be wrong, since I haven't been using Live Motion for very long.  There is no documentation on this type of motion in the manual.  Hope someone else out there has a solution.

Check out Illustrator 10 - It can do what you want with as many inbetweens as you like. You can then release the tweens to layers. I am having trouble exporting the file and keeping the layers seperate photoshop although I believe it's supposed to be able to do that. You can save as an annimated gif or flash.

Hi All,
I have just upgraded to LiveMotion 2.0, and with the Live Tab plug-in "Live Morph", you can do some shape tweening/morphing.  It's cool.

Pixelchik,

That morphing program sounds interesting. Does it come with LM2, or is it an additional purchase? I tried searching for it on Google with no luck.

Thanks!

Hi Bill,
If you go to Adobe Exchange website you can download all kinds of extras and plug-ins for Adobe products. Here's the URL for the Live Morph Tab towards the bottom of the page:

Have fun!

Thanks, Pixelchick.

I'll check it out.
