Hi All,


I've been banging my head against this for a while, I've been trying to use particle emitters, and about everything else I can think of but I need some help with this. Basically, I want to replicate the attached pen but have an infinite amount of creatures spawned along the bezier curve with no breaks. I'm able to repeat the animation obviously but there's always a break in the chain as it repeats. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Ok, works now! So the only other issue I'm having is that I need these elements to appear at an even pace. It seems like I can't get any sort of spacing unless it's using Math.random()*10 for the delay. If I put a defined value there they all come out in one chunk. I think I'm missing something because isn't it just multiplying a random number  0 < # <1 x 10? Why wouldn't a fixed value behave similarly?  



Thanks again for your help.

AltaVista  :shock:  Haven't seen that in awhile.


I just went over the problem with creating tweens in loop a couple of days ago. This particular post is relevant to your timing issue.



You can either use a timeline or stagger the delay somehow. I just used the index of the loop.
