The GreenSock Tweening Platform (which includes TweenLite and TweenMax) has recently been updated to version 11. It is still available for AS2 and AS3 and claims to be faster and more capable. There is a huge list of improvements on the GreenSock website (it was great before, even better now) and it has now confirmed to me that it is the best ActionScript tweening engine out there. The website is full of loads of help, examples, documentation, tips, speed tests and faq. I’ve always found the interactive examples on the GreenSock website particularly useful.

Three great new additions to the platform are TweenNano, TimelineLite and TimelineMax. TweenNano is only 1.6k in size and designed to be used where filesize is at a premium (i.e. banner ads). TimelineLite and TimelineMax allow you to build and manage sequences of tweens.

There is a feature comparison on the site and a Getting Started Tweening guide which you may find handy.

Go and check it out, and start using it in your projects.

Great work Jack! Thanks.

    Yep! I’m a club greensock member and use TweenLite in my projects. The new Timeline classes are great.
