With this book entitled Apple Motion 5 Cookbook by Nick Haurauz, you can quickly learn to create motion graphics in Apple Motion 5. The author takes a recipe approach and walks his readers step-by-step through how to use Motion’s tools, techniques while including a few useful tips and tricks.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Opening an Envelope Flash ActionScript 3
A few of my readers wanted to know how to create the popular Flash animation which shows an envelope opening. In this tutorial, we will create that animation and program it to begin when the stamp on the envelope is clicked.
7. After Effects Snowfall Simulation Effect
In this tutorial, we will create an After Effects CC Snowfall simulation that will be the basis of a book app trailer. The project has a jpg background image and the snowfall will be on an adjustment layer above that. You will also learn the names of the panels in the After Effects workspace.
8. Creative Cloud Syncing
Creative Cloud is Adobe's new fee-based membership platform for syncing your creative life across Adobe applications. The first step after creating a Creative Cloud membership is to download the Creative Cloud desktop app which is your pathway to everything Creative Cloud.
9. Sparkling Animated Star
Create a sparkling star animation along a curved path in Flash.
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.
