Problems with Tween and Using TweenLite

Have you had trouble with Adobe’s Tween class? (Used for so called “easy” ActionScript animation of display objects) I sure have, so I thought I’d write a post about it. When I was first taught how to animate with ActionScript, I had many a lock up and stutter from the Tween class. For awhile I was quite annoyed, seeing theĀ benefitĀ of animation using ActionScript but thinking that it was totally unreliable. Now there are a number of methods to fix the problems with Tween, using Dictionaries, new objects and so on; all of which seemed tedious and time consuming. Thankfully, I found a better solution, third party tweening engines! I’m going to tell you about what I think is the best one, TweenLite.
