In this section we’ll study techniques enabling the dynamic control of our graphics through ActionScript. We’ll be looking at motion that is entirely determined by code, to the point where it isn’t predetermined by any frame-based animation and can therefore be considered non-linear. In the first half of this chapter we’ll familiarize ourselves with the different control strategies available to us with ActionScript in Flash MX. Next, we’ll use these techniques as we examine the solutions to and practicalities of some specific motion design problems and scenarios. Finally, we’ll study the details of motion in a fairly complex example of a multi-element movie.
