Having trouble assigning tweens to objects dynamically

  • Further to this, I have tried something else:

    I set up two tweens called tweenLR and tweenRL in a script attached to the object I want to move. That script is set to initialise on 'lens turned on', as is the tween.js script. I then try to trigger the tweens from the touch handler using:

    global.tweenManager.startTween(global.scene.getRootObject(5), "tweenLR");


    global.tweenManager.startTween(global.scene.getRootObject(5), "tweenRL");

    but it throws an error "Tween Manager: Tween, tweenLR, is not found. Ensure that tweenLR is on "Lens Turn On" and that Tween Manager is at the top of the Objects Panel". Tween Manager is correctly placed so still stuck.

  • Fixed! I rolled back from custom coding the tweens, and just stacked some tweenTransform scripts on each layer of the parallax layers. Calling these from the main touch event handler seems to work fine so all good!
