How to make some nice effect

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Oct 25, 2013 10:35 am

Hi all!

I am working on a fun project. Now i want to get a bit used to some nice effect to make the project more "alive".

Everything so far is static and only moves without any animation.

I did read some "stuff and things " . Now, i really don't know how.

Well here an example. I've got a frame with a block in that frame. Just a normal image. Once clicked i want it to well lets say: Spin continuously 360 degrees and get smaller in the meantime within a 3 second timelimit.

Just as simple as that. Does this force me to make a animated image or is this a effect i can set in construct 2?

If i have to make a animation i guess i need to make alot of frames as images. This ofcourse takes a while for a single effect. My question here is does any one know a program where you can make animated images on the "take a image and put effects on it" way. After export it to framed images or something?

I hope i made my self clear ( i'm not the best at that one ).

Thanks in advance!

P.s. Really still enjoying Construct 2! Great product!

The effect you descriped is pretty easy and you dont need any animation.

+ Every tick
- Object rotate clockwise: 1
- Object set width to object.width - 1
- Object set height to object.height - 1


This will be a bit fast and not so smooth, but its the basic. To get it smooth read a bit about lerp and delta time ;)
