Can we do this type of animation (smoothly)?

Dear all,


Will we be able to do the animation storyboarded in the attached smoothly? It involves transitioning 4 individual elements on the page to their resting place in the dock bar, while the chosen one enlarges and fills the screen? ded05814e53ca56007406bbf34f01fde

Well, you can get to simulate this behaviour so everyone could understand what you're meaning. However, you will have to define some of the frames of this animation individually (using Dynamic Panels for example) and hence the whole movement will not look very smoothly. Just notice that the more frames you define the more smoothly it will look but it could be a tedious work.

Thank you Bernat!! Glad there's hope.. I'll need to look into Dynamic Panels further. Since we can embed Flash into this app (I read that somewhere), would i be able to use that as an alternative?


For example, whenever a user clicks on a section that is to be followed by an animation, would i be able to replace (or embed in an iframe) that portion of the screen, play the animation, and then jump back again?..


To maintain the smoothness factor Bernat?

Yes, you can also try with a Flash widget. The animation will definitely be more smooth. You will have to use the 'Hide/Show' action: show the Flash widget when the square is clicked and then hide it after a certain amount of time using a 'Pause' action.
