Here are the top ten articles for the Flash and Animation Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. Start a New Project in Motion 5
Now that we have taken a tour of the Motion 5 workspace, let’s start a new project. We will be taking a closer look at a few of the menus and the Project Browser.
2. Remove Movie Clip with ActionScript 3
Now that we programmed Flash to move our movie clip from the Flash Library and place it on the stage, we can work on the ActionScript that will close this movie clip. The easiest way is to create a Close button and add ActionScript to go with it that will remove our movie clip from the stage.
3. ScreenFlow Annotations and Nested Clips
In the last tutorial, you learned how to add text to a marketing video short and build the company logo with a combination of text and an imported logo graphic. We can use ScreenFlow’s Annotations feature to draw the line under the company name and complete the logo.
4. Button Behaviors in ActionScript 2.0 and 3.0
With the upgrade to ActionScript 3 in Flash CS3, I thought that it would be useful to program a button using both AS2 and AS3, so that you can see the changes necessary for ActionScript 3.
5. Add Library Items to Stage – Flash ActionScript 3
In this tutorial, our goal is to load and run a movie clip with ActionScript. But, the movie clip is not on the stage when the website is loaded. It is stored in the Flash Library.
6. After Effects CC, Flash CC and PhoneGap
Creative Cloud offers new and improved features for After Effects CC, Flash CC and PhoneGap. We see new live integration between CINEMA 4D and After Effects CC. Creative Cloud also makes creating apps with PhoneGap Build much easier and the Toolkit for CreateJS extension is now built into Flash CC.
7. Motion Library Content
Apple Motion has pre-built objects, effects and other design elements, called content, that can be added to your projects. This content ranges from a simple static background to more complex particle animations, such as the Bokeh. You can drag and drop several elements to create impressive effects.
8. Adding Text to Motion Project
Text is an important design element in a Motion project. Common uses of text are lower thirds and titles. Once added, you will want to add special effects to the text such as Motion behaviors, masks, filters and blend modes. Let’s walk through the process for adding text to a Motion project.
9. Setting Movie Clip Properties with ActionScript 3.0
In this tutorial, we will explore the properties for a Movie Clip object in the Properties Inspector and then write ActionScript 3.0 code that will set values for these properties.
10. How To Make A Flash Button
If you have been following along in the series, you are now ready to create menu buttons for your Flash website. We will create a template button that we will later use as the foundation to create your rollover menu buttons.
