(Pro) Ken Burns-style movement

Are there any FW (Pro) actions created that will do what this opening page does? It’s a Ken Burns-style scan of a still picture on the right window plus a lot of cool movement. I want to know how to do ALL of this! Point me in the right direction! www.burgerboat.com

Your example page is done with Flash. And no, Freeway has no such capabilities for doing that kind of animation. HTML5 can handle this kind of stuff also, but again Freeway has no capabilities built in to use them…yet.

You could generate an animated Flash file using a 3rd party tool other than Flash if buying/learning to use Flash is not an option. Freeway will happily display the Flash content.

If you have a look at my Endless animation, you can see one way to do
this with nothing more than JavaScript and a really wide picture. If
you wanted the animation to only cycle once, that would be easy to
modify based on the existing code. This is one of the few examples I
have posted in recent memory that doesn’t rely on the Prototype
library to work.

Thanks for the input. My machine is ancient. I’m so looking forward to an
upgrade in all areas and that will allow me to go for the Flash software as
well. Thought…could I import an iMovie that would give me similar effect?

If you’re moving a static picture around on the screen, then you
really don’t need the overhead of Flash or QuickTime to do that.
Here’s a little example, done with the Protaculous Action and the
Scriptaculous Morph effect.

http://scripty.walterdavisstudio.com/ken/

All I did was position an image on screen as a positioned child of a
much smaller HTML box, and set that box to Overflow:Hidden. The Morph
effect allows you to set some CSS (in this case the left position
attribute) to what you want it to be in the future, and then when the
effect runs, the element changes over time until it reaches the
destination specified in the CSS. This same effect can also make any
type of change you can specify in CSS, so it could be more complex,
like fading out while it moves, or pretty much anything you can imagine.
