Hi Keith.

Yes you can. The answer is layer mapping. Build an Illustrator document where each layer represents a frame of the animation... create a line that represents the edge of the ribbon... use the tween tool or manually create different versions, like stop-motion animation.

In PA, extrude the line to give the ribbon thickness.

Doe this help?

Well it does, but this sounds time consuming. It's a 6 second animation, which would be 180 frames. So that would be a lot to create.

Thanks for the help,
Keith

well, as im learning good animation takes time. i used to want things done now and done quick, but it ALL takes time. i started to realize the amount of work people did for just small animations. DREAM BIG but get ready to WORK HARD. you learn along the way and its worth it. i went within a year to not knowing a thing about flash and trial and error ive now designed 4 sites completely in flash. it wasnt easy, im not a pro but it was fun and i get better and better.

Hi,

Like ae4life said, good animations take time. You may also want to check the film strip tutorial.

Salut.

Absolutely, Serge..

One correction to my original post... I wrote layer mapping... I meant layer cycling. I don't think anyone was confused, but these are two very different techniques.

Thanks everyone. I understand good animation takes time. Unfortunately this project doesn't allow that time. This was just an extra that I wanted to add if it could be done quick.

Again, thanks,
Keith
