How to Animate the Position of a Still Image?

Post by greenvillehughes » Mon Dec 10, 2018 20:09

Hi,
I am needing to animate the position of still image in Arena.
For example, I have a Car image and I want it to move across the screen.
I really don't want to have to create the animation in After Effects (.mov) if I don't have to.
Can I do this in Arena 6.0 using transform or some effect to move the still image across the screen?
Thanks for your help!

Quite a few ways!

Change your “X” position from “basic” to “timeline” and play with the parameters until you like it. This way is best for a looping car.

Changing to “clip position” would then allow you to use an envelope on the x position that is applied over the duration of the image. This way you could mimic acceleration, slowing etc.

Or, depending on the image you might use a “slide” effect.
