Hmm don't know how helpful this will be but I think a shape tween might be a way ta go...

after ya get the shape tween from triangle ta whatever distorted shape you are looking for...select all those frames and paste em right after the last frame..n select em n reverse em..

just an idea...not sure if that's what you are looking for...

I think what he's looking for is what I'm looking for, check out this guys site from the Website Reviews forum
: http://www.ozzu.com/website-reviews/site-review-new-rock-band-slick-new-site-t31174.html :

Load the photos section and notice how no matter what order you click the photos in, the rectangle tweens automatically to the next shape. They either programmed every possible tween that could take place, or there's some cool actionscript involved.

And I as well am in search of that technique!

Anyone who has it or a reference can PM me or just reply to this topic.

Thanks

Update -

I think I'm on the right track searching for these lines of code

border.resizeMe
containerMC.

This article at kairupa.com is pretty much what I'm searching for http://www.kirupaforum.com/forums/showt ... ge=3&pp=15

My problem is that I'm still not that proficient with flash and am not sure how to set up and arrange this whole event.. Where to place the actions, and where do I place the containerMC? I will keep searching for answers, I'll post the answers here if I find them..

Hope this helps you 2 buzzby

edit - except for I just realized that I've forgotten you're trying to apply this effect to a triangle, damm. You may be on your own there, but maybe what I've found will help you somewhat..

No problem, I think it's possible that we might be looking for two totally different effects anyways, but because of what they do, they could both theoretically be called an elastic effect.

I did find my answer though at that kairupa link that I posted in this thread.

border.resizeMe
