Hot spots, flyins and layers.... oh my
Aug 21, 2013
I'm working on a custom menu for a project and I'm running into some problems. The image below is what the menu is going to look like. What I would like to happen is when a person hovers over a hot spot on the left, the banner flys in. The banner has to stay underneath the image with the hot spots. I have a base layer, the hotspot layer, and a layer for each banner. All images are .png with transperancy. The hotspot layer is shown when timeline starts. My first thought was to have the base layer, followed by the banner layers, with the hotspot layer on top of the layer list. All the banners were assigned animation to fly in from the left. Two things happened. First when I hovered over the hotspots, the banner would show up flickering off to the side. The only way the banner would completly fly in is if I pressed and held the mouse button. Second, the banner layers always show up on top of everything. If I don't animate the banner layers they pop on just fine but are still on top of everything. Anybody have a simple elegant solution to this?
