I'm trying to create a complex parallax effect in Flash video sequence that includes translation and scaling among many layers.
I've been looking for a way to set up my scene to where I could just animate one object (preferably with motion tween) and then apply some percentage of that animation to each background object (or flip values accordingly).
Is there any way to harvest Motion Tween data out of a layer of a MovieClip and translate that into x,y values for objects? [So far I've only created instances of objects and set their positions through actionscript.]
Seems like you need to use a copy motion option of the layer context menu
Also tweening actionscript libraries e.g. TweenMax are capable of tweening any properties of any objects, but they do it with actionscript (which can be easily copied/modified/pasted), not Adobe Flash UI.
So converting every visual element to a movieclip allowed me to position the items in Z as well. That pretty much solved my problem.
