I am finally organized within the .fla file (thanks to Olshefski) with all my files/buttons. Instead of learning tweening specifically, I am learning Flash code which will make the file MUCH more manage-able later on (ESPECIALLY FOR SOMEONE FINISHING THE PROJECT).
Here is the latest .fla file! (Click Read More)
Here is the result after I was able to figure out how to add a hover glow on each button (paint button on DOWN and erase insides)
My weekly problem is now going to be figuring out how to get some good, nicely animated buttons and rotations. This isn't it. First try is with making a movie clip inside the req. courses button and trying to create an animation for the orb. I may have to turn the orb into a button as well.
So, my second attempt required me to start over (from the where I left off at the highlight) and remake the different layers INSIDE the required courses button. I remade the movie clip of required courses into another button within the button and created a motion tween (which was better than manually animating it). However, the dot goes away whenever I scroll over.
I'll be seeking MORE assistance from Olshefski on a more timely and optimal way of animating the buttons.
my weekly to do list!
Here's where I will update my plans to stay on track of what I must do each week for a quality end result.
