    Hi

    I want to create an effect where it looks as though lemons are being thrown onto the screen from where the viewer will sit if you get me.

    How would i recreate this effect simply with motion tweens ? i cant seem to get it to look realistic.


    Cheers

    Just do a tween on the scale of the lemon, and set your easing to 100% in. Make it about 10 - 15 frames at 30 fps. The last frame should have the lemon filling the entire screen and beyond.

    Take real world physics(sp?) into account. When you throw something it will first go up slighly, then gravity will start to pull it down creating an arch-like path. So you should not only animate the lemon size, but also the arch it will travel, and dont forget to apply easing. Also sound effects like a 'slide whistel' when thrown, and a 'splat' at the end will help create the illusion even more. Also consider a 'splattered lemon' frame at the end, to accompany the sound effect.

    Great points about the physics and sounds, glyakk. Details like these often make or break the effect.

    Tacky sound effects create a tacky feel. If you use good sound effects, the result will be good.

    I did a quick search on Google that gave some promising results.

    www.stonewashed.net/sfx.html - a directory of pages

    http://freesoundfiles.tintagel.net/Audio/ - listed on the above page, seems to have a variety of sounds.
