    Re: Once you've animated, you have export options in Xara

    Thanks for the insight and work, Egg. I really have no intention of a "repeat performance", because the little art experiment was validation enough that an off-centered group of shapes could be...

    Very good chance, Egg. ;)

    Sharing is what an art community is all about.

    Re: Once you've animated, you have export options in Xara

    Having pieces come apart in a group when animating is a certainty in Xara, as well as Flash, I think.

    The workaround of making a bitmap is inspired, Egg.

    Overall, there seems to be a problem...

    Re: Once you've animated, you have export options in Xara

    @ csehz—

    This fact might not be of help immediately, but in the future:

    Xara prefers that when you want to go from transparent to opaque in a Flash animation you use 1% for transparent, and not...

    Re: Once you've animated, you have export options in Xara

    For only 15 frames, this is excellent, egg.

    Yeah, you can make actors (objects, shapes) follow a path in Adobe Flash, and do similar advanced things in SwishMax (about $100(US), but with patience...

    Re: Once you've animated, you have export options in Xara

    Okay, you have just hit another limitation in Shockwave specifications: the arc you want the airplane to follow? Arcs (curves) are parabolic equations and SWF file rules and regulations have no...

    Re: Once you've animated, you have export options in Xara

    If you click a frame on the Animation Frame Gallery, and then click the Copy button, you create a new frame with all the shapes in frame 1 (or whichever).

    Your way is good, keeping shapes on the...

    Re: Once you've animated, you have export options in Xara

    You cannot use Bleach or Stained Glass transparency in an animation, csehz. Xara uses all the Shockwave rules and limitations for animation as I listed on Xara Xone. So regardless of whether your...

    Re: Once you've animated, you have export options in Xara

    Hi csehz—

    Briefly so your technique to improve the .avi quality is making a bitmap copy for those elements, which are anyway not supported in flash.

    No. I had to make bitmap copies of the...

    Re: Once you've animated, you have export options in Xara

    Hi csehz—

    I’m sorry to say that there are a few things about animation in Xara that you do not understand. Most importantly, you need to begin with all your shapes in frame 1 and name the ones you...

    Once you've animated, you have export options in Xara

    Thanks, Egg! It's a clean, exceptionally self-explanatory example you've gifted the community with.

    I believe Other Gary is asking where she is, why she hasn't posted again, what with all this great material we've provided for her.

    Re: Creating a flickering light in Xara

    Nice, example, Egg. I see your timing is 2/10s of a second, usually.

    That should give Monica a good head start on the flickering text effect she wants by just following the order and duration you...

    Hi Monica—

    You can use Xara's animation features to create a flickering effect with text or other shape by specifying a very short duration for a frame with a particular brightness, move on to...
