Movie Clip

I am trying to use an image, lets say a boat, it slide of in the right direction then it comes back, I can use 2 images, or use scale(-1) on a copy of the one image, in terms of memory, its still using 2 images. when I try to put the -1 in scaleX within the movie clip, the image doesnt flip, so is this possible? and have I got the syntax right?
self:addChild(boatR)
mcBoat=MovieClip.new{
{1,500, 	boatR,{x={-50,(application:getLogicalHeight()),"linear"}}},
{500,1000, 	boatR,{x={(application:getLogicalHeight()),-50,"linear"}}, scaleX={-1,-1} }
}

    I haven't tried the sort of syntax you are using but I would imagine that scaleX might just need one value and not the pair you have given.

    Do you have the anchor point for the image set to the middle?

    Well, you can scrap my idea! I just tried it and it doesn't work....

    @Cyberience - I've just had a fiddle with the code and could only get it to work if I put the scaleX as a separate command timed to happen at the end of the first move, like this:
    self:addChild(boatR)
    mcBoat=MovieClip.new{
    {1,500, boatR,{x={-50,(application:getLogicalHeight()),"linear"}}},
    {500,501, boatR,{scaleX={1,-1}}}, 
    {500,1000, boatR,{x={(application:getLogicalHeight()),-50,"linear"}} }
    }

  • ah, excellent, kind of logical when you find an answer, in effect from 1 to -1 stat in 1 frame. nice solve there mate. Thats really usfull for changing an animation state, without having to have multiple versions of a frame action in both directions :)
    Should post this in a tutorial!

    Thanks

    You're welcome. It made me play with that type of movement which I hadn't tried before. I got some really gloopy changes of direction by playing with the start and finish frames and the start and finish scales while I was working out what all the numbers did.
