I have just started to look into Animate. I have a small amount of knowledge back in the flash days.
My question is how do you create 2 independent timelines. Basically I have a slidinging in panel with some type, once the slideing in has finished I would like an 2 arrows to animate near the type.
At the moment the sliding in panel is in a symbol and inside the symbol is the arrow ready to animate. This needs to start after the symbol is completed sliding in.
Can anyone help or point us to a link?
Hope this make sense..
Of course there are multiple ways to handle things like this.
at the end of your timeline you can tell the arrows to animate. Now I am not sure what you mean by "start to animate". Are these symbols which their own timeline? If so I suppose you have a stop at the beginning. Then you can add this on the text timeline.
this.arrow.gotoAndPlay(1); // 1 because I suppose 0 has the stop code
Now you could also use the same timeline as the text and animate the arrows there if the animation of the arrow is not inside the arrows.
So we need a little more explanation to be able to assess what is actually going on.
The question was how to create independent timelines.
The answer to that question is: movieclip symbols.
Thanks for your clarification. Indeed movieclip is the correct designation, but since his setup is not clear one movieclip could be enough.
