1. 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.
2. Particle Fog in Motion 5 - Scene Graphics
In a previous tutorial, we created a layered Photoshop image that we used in our Motion 5 Parallax effect. But we can use this same layered image to create a 2D layered project with spooky fog. In this tutorial, we will import the image into a new Motion 5 document.
3. Motion 5 Parallax Effect - The Graphics
In Motion 5, much like the Ken Burns effect, the Parallax effect is used to simulate movement of static graphics. The intro will consist of several layers of these graphics and by adding camera movement in to the mix, we will have a 2.5 D animation.
4. Animate Lower Third in Motion 5
In this Motion tutorial we will add the text to the lower third and build the animation. At this point we have imported a background graphic for the lower third, reduced the opacity of the graphic and positioned it at the left bottom corner of the screen.
5. Motion Particle Systems - Introduction
In this tutorial, we will create a Motion particle system from a simple circle shape and take a look at the ways we can customize our particle system.
6. Particle System - Emitter Shape Parameters
Let’s take a look at the parameters we can change in our particle system. To see the parameters, we need to go to the Inspector.
7. 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.
8. Add Static Text To Craft Product Trailer Template
In this tutorial, we will continue to work on the craft product trailer template. We are using Motion to create the template with placeholders, call drop zones, for the customizable graphics and other design elements in the template.
9. 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.
10. Add a Hyperlink to a Button in Adobe Flash CS3 Professional
Many readers have asked how to create links in Flash movies that will take your visitor to another website such as your eBay store. In most cases, this link will either be a button or a text link. In this tutorial, we will take a look at how to create a button link in your Flash movie.
