    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forum as well as Objective C.

    Here's a question regarding animation:

    Let's say that I have a simple menu consisting of images, when I click one of the images in the menu I'd like something to animate and when that animation is complete I set the next view.

    Here's quick mock up of what I mean:
    The regular menu item, unclicked
    [​IMG]

    The item after the animation is complete
    [​IMG]

    What would be the easiest way to animate the flowery-thing behind the text, the effect that I'm looking for is just some sort of maskin from left to right.

    Do I use the UIImageView and make the animation there, frame by frame, do I use a prerendered movie and how do I make it call a method when the animation is complete?

    Thanks!

    I'm very new to Xcode and programming in general, but from what I understand, would this work best by utilizing OpenGL?
