Better MovieClips with SwAG

MovieClips have been the stalwart workhorse of Flash since the very earliest days of ActionScript, so I’ll skip the details and gushing adoration and instead move on to some of the shortcomings:

  • MovieClips only play forward from the current frame. When building out animations without extra MovieClip functionality, playing animations backwards — a character in a game reversing, for example –requires a whole new timeline with the animation reversed. This produces a little extra memory overhead, even if symbols are re-used, but more importantly makes cross-linking the “forward” and “backward” clips challenging. For example, if a character is in a specific position on frame 5 of a “forward” animation, that frame might appear in frame 45 of the “backward” animation.
  • MovieClips only play at the global frame rate. Effectively, your game character can only run at one speed unless you include other MovieClips and then match them up, as best as possible, to the target speed.
  • MovieClips play holistically. When you play them, you must monitor their current frame if you want to stop at a specific point otherwise they’ll play all the way through. If you want to do this backwards, that’s even more work. If you want to play at a specific rate, ditto.
  • MovieClips have no triggers. If you want to know if frame 5 (or some label) has been reached, for example, you once again need to monitor the clip. Setting up multiple playback monitors is a bit of a pain.

So you can now probably guess what SwagMovieClip does.
