As an After Effects guy, I naturally chose LiveMotion over Flash years ago. I make a few websites and LiveMotion has continued to suit my limited flash needs. But I'm making the jump with a new site. And first, I'm trying to learn what I know in LiveMotion. LiveMotion works in Leopard still btw.
Anyway, the learning is going well, and I'm getting used to all the oddities of movie clips instead of nests, etc. The keyframing is archaic even in CS3! LM from 2002 was simpler. I'm trying to duplicate a simple pan and scan of images like I used to, and I've figured it out. However, the results are much jumpier than the livemotion results.
As you can see the "talented professionals" is jumping all over the place. It's a very small file so far - 172k. The large jpegs are compressed at 33%. However they are large in scale. I had to shrink them down to half their size or more. Could that be the issue?
It's created very simply. The text animates over a still. Those elements are turned into a movie clip. That movie clip is then panned across in it's own movie clip. That movie clip is in the main scene with a matte layer.
That's it. What's the trick to gettting nice smooth text motion in this case?
