Seamless transition between tweens

Godot Version



I’m trying to create a tween animation for UI where a banner drops from the top of the screen and then does a bounce in place.

func _ready():

func banner_drop():
  var tween = create_tween()
  tween.tween_property(banner, "position:y", 400, 3).set_trans(Tween.TRANS_BACK).set_ease(Tween.EASE_OUT)

func banner_bounce():
  var tween = create_tween().set_loops()
  tween.tween_property(banner, "position:y", -30 , 2.0).as_relative().set_trans(Tween.TRANS_QUAD).set_ease(Tween.EASE_IN_OUT)
  tween.tween_property(banner, "position:y", 30 , 2.0).as_relative().set_trans(Tween.TRANS_QUAD).set_ease(Tween.EASE_IN_OUT)

It works for the most part but there’s a slight pause between one tween and the other. I included a video showing the ~1 second transition between the first function and the second. Is there a way to seamlessly go from one to the other?

Alternatively, is there a way to set_loops() for only a determined number of steps in the tween instead of the whole thing? This is the reason I used two different functions.

just set_loops(10)
put the amount you want to loop inside it

this just basically try to change how your easing and transition type to make it seamless

But I mean, if I had a tween with 3 steps, would it be possible to just loop from the second step onwards or do I always have to loop the whole tween?

then you separate the first step tween and create new tween just to loop the rest steps
it looks like what you did

Thanks, I was just wondering if this looked like an appropriate solution or not.
