How to actionscript alpha fade in for graphic/mc in a scene

Hi,

I am sure this is really easy I just can't get my head around it properly, all solutions I find are too complex.

I have different scenes, one image (at the moment as graphics, should maybe be MC) in each scene that I want to fade in. By using normal tween I get a flicker here and there and understand that if I use actionscript instead it should be smoother. So, what I need is

"at the beginning of this scene fade in item X and then stop." That's it. I just don't get what I write and where... ever so grateful for help!!

Thanks a million in advance,

Jzen

That is great thanks, but I know how to do it the "create motion tween way", I would like to to it completely with actionscripting... I understand that will both make it smoother and the file size smaller? I'll do movieclips for sure - especially if it keeps the flash player happy...

hi,

you could use something like this

easeType = mx.transitions.easing.None.easeNone; // ease type
var begin = 0;
var end = 100;
var frames = 20;
var mc = picture_mc; // the movieclip :)
var myTween = new mx.transitions.Tween(mc, "_alpha", easeType, begin, end, frames );

the Tween and all other trasition classes are undocumented ... but you can find some tutorials on the internet ... if you want more details

Thanks, I'm sure that might help... I managed to find another solution though that works well

mc._alpha = 0;
mc.onEnterFrame = function() {
    if (this._alpha<100) {
        this._alpha++;
    } else {
        this._alpha = 100;
        delete this.onEnterFrame;
    }
};
