I got a movieclip, and I got a custom path (some curves imported from Illustrator)

How can I "attach" my movieclip so each frame it advances over a segment of the curve?.

If you need a more detailed explanation I can draw a picture.

  • Please, do not use Flash anymore. It is outdated technology. – Patrick Oct 15 '15 at 19:15
  • @Patrick Flash is still used heavily in video game development in conjunction with Scaleform. It ain't dead yet! ;) – Vicki Oct 15 '15 at 19:35
  • @Patrick if you mean Actionscript, you are wrong. And if you mean Flash Pro, you are more than wrong. – Artemix Oct 16 '15 at 0:05

  1. Draw a path on its own layer
  2. Cut your path Cmd / Ctrl+X
  3. Have your MovieClip Layer Selected
  4. Create the desired length of the animation and Insert Frames
  5. Then select your Movieclip, right click and Create Motion Tween
  6. Paste in place your path
  7. Go back to Frame 1 and then in the Properties panel under Rotation choose Orient to Path
