Creating animations for banners the easy way.
Learning animation doesn't have to be hard. The built-in capabilities of animation in flash are lacking in many departments when it comes to programmatic animations. Fortunately, one of the most powerful animation engines out there (provided by GreenSock) can solve this problem. In this first set of lectures, we will introduce you to the classes that are used to animate with this library. Our main hero class will be TweenNano. The TweenNano class enables developers to create simple animations that are not interactive, quickly and efficiently, without worrying too much about file size.. However, in most scenarios you would want to use one of the more advanced library options such as the TweenLite or TweenMax (we will cover those in a later chapter). TweenNano is a wonderful option when you need to build something that is incredibly small, such as a banner. By the end of this chapter, you will be able to animate non-interactive animations, i.e. plan and create an animation that is not influenced or controlled after it's created.
