Hi.

Cat's back in tutorial mode : )

I asked this question back in August or September and recieved a couple of
great answers which I didn't save and can't seem to dig up in either flasher
or flashcoders archives.

I have some old scripts (Hypertalk and Lingo versions) which move an object
in lissajous curve patterns. Since its familiar territory, I want to try
them out with Flash 5 actionscript.

I have my movieclip moving in a "while (i < somenumber)" loop. My clip moves
correctly, however all you can see is really the first and final positions.
I need ideas (or links to tutorials) about the best way to show the steps.

I think using movies with more than one frame might have been the answer : )

I noticed helen triolo's elegantly moving bubbles, which I might try and
figure out - looks like there might be some help there - but if anyone can
give me a jump start, I'd appreciate it.

Catherine
