    Default Animating bitmap fills

    Another video on tweening without flash. Animates a fake globe map and a very fast car.

    Very impressive Anas. So is this a gif animation converted to a video?

    On second viewing I noticed that the guy's thumb is moving too. Nice detail.

    Thanks,

    This animation is:
    ✖️ Not possible to be exported as a GIF as it is a tweened animation.
    ✖️ Not possible to be exported as a SWF flash animation due to the moving bitmaps inside a shape.
    ✔️ Exported by Xara as an AVI video.

    There are 3 unique methods of creating animations in Xara:
    ⚡️ Flash (with its unique properties).
    �� GIF (with its unique properties).
    �� AVI (with its unique properties).

    The most versatile method is the last one, ie. to export directly as an AVI video.
    AVI is even better than [Preview] movie as preview movie can not handle complex tweens such as [blends].

    He place a video for us to view. I copied the link so perhaps this will help: https://youtu.be/rzfF5BRO5OI.

    Anas, I don't believe avi does any tweening. The Xara software does the tweening as per Flash a .swf vector file. An avi file just creates multiple images of the tween and plays them sequentially. Good but BIG file size wise. Example:
    Attached Thumbnails Attached Thumbnails Click image for larger version.

    I'm glad you all like the thumb.

    Eric, I agree but the end result is that an .AVI export will give you a fully tweened rendition, which is often not possible with a flash .SWF file or by viewing the preview. The file size is not a problem as you will always need to convert it to .MP4 which is much smaller and portable anyway.

    My main point is that in my opinion, most users do not realise the power of Xara animation. We mostly and wrongly assume that it is limited to flash capabilities.
