AS3 Gyro Animation (Tween) Engine Alpha

Posted January 29, 2008 by senocular


This is something I've been sitting on for a while: Gyro - a collection of animation or "tweening" classes for ActionScript 3.0. I know some of you have already picked up on it from the ActionScript section of the site, but I've never officially announced it because of it being so early in development. It's still early now, but usable, and I've just uploaded the most recent version (easy full Gyro classes download via zip). Who knows how long it will be before it's done; I figured I'd better just get it out there. There's already so many other options for tweening as it is...
And really, for that matter, why choose Gyro? Well, I don't have an answer for you. If you like it, use it. If not, I won't mind. I'm sure there are other solutions out there with more features or better performance. This is just what I wanted from a tweening engine so whipped it up.
