1. Craft Product Template Layers
Now that we have finished the preflight decisions made for our Motion craft template, we need to decide how we will use the Layers pane to organize our video project. Naming and organizing the layers is important.
2. Craft Product Trailer Template Prototype
Once you have created the perfect craft product trailer in Apple Motion, with the best images pans, text and transitions, its time to use that as your prototype for a Motion template with drop zones.
3. Craft Product Trailer Design Elements
In this tutorial, we will continue to dissect our craft product trailer prototype in preparation of creating a Motion template. We can then use the template to create other craft product trailers with less time and effort.
4. 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.
5. Add Library Items to Stage Ė 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. Craft Product Template - Background Layer
Now that we have the Layers pane hierarchy for our template planned out, we can begin to build the template from scratch. In the last few tutorials for this project, we will do just that.
7. Motion Craft Video Template
If you need to create many craft videos showing how to use your craft products, you can save a lot of time by using a Motion 5 template and drop zones. Letís see what our options are for doing just that. For those of you unfamiliar with templates, letís talk a little about them.
8. Review jQuery Mobile Web Dev Essentials
Mobile devices are here to stay but is your website ready? This book by Raymond Camden and Andy Matthews entitled jQuery Mobile Web Development Essentials Second Edition will help you get your website ready for mobile devices.
9. 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.
10. 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.
