Action run speed
« on: February 23, 2013, 06:01:30 AM »
I have a state which is when the player dies - the screen goes red, fog changes and you drop down (Y position).

It all works fine - but it happens instantly.

How can I set a speed for the actions to run at?

Sorry if this is a bit of a noob question - but I am new to all this.

From what i'm aware its not possible to set the speed that actions run at, so the next best thing would be the Wait action, i'm not sure how well this will work in your case as i don't know how you have things setup but i hope it helps give you a start.

You need to change those values over time instead of setting them instantly to a value.

For example, make a Color variable in the Variables tab, and use a Color Interpolate action to gradually change it from a starting color to Red.

In the action browser, search for "interpolate", "animate", "ease"..
