In case someone dont have any background of flash.
You may download flash MX 2004 here:
Here is a falsh tutorial from macromedia
Second Step: learn form examples (Snow effect):
I am posting some snow effect samples with tutorials
If I could find more later, I would post them. But I believe these samples will already help you SNOW....
Snow Globe Effect
I like this one, it more realistic
Falling down snowflakes
THis one is for banner
This looks more like blinking star to me
Second Step II learn from samples (clock):
Clock, for tracking how much time, you have wasted... ANd how close to the END... I guess
- must have some autoscripts knowledge
This one looks simpler
ok, this is not a exactly clock, it is a timer
Custom Date/Time Clock
I dont think anyone is going to put this on his/her website
a Binary Clock
Ok..... I think computers know how to read it
watch? anyway... same fuction..just different interface
how simple you want it be?
what can I say, it looks so cool
Second Step III Learn from examples (Preloader):
Reseach indicate most people cant wait over 7s .... With a 56k modem(IS anyone still using it???) it may take forever to load a flash... Preloader help those guys get more patience..
a simple preloader
all the preloader almost the same.
This is a fancy one
A cleaner and more graphic tutorial
this is all for today,practise more if you want to good at it
before this year, which i'm in CG2 now, i tried learning flash through tuts similar to those, and i could never get it, but i've been learning it for the last 3 class periods,and i've already gotten all the basics and learned far more than i did in the 6 months i tried with tuts, i guess i'm just a hands on kind of guy, but maybe its flash thats difficult to learn with tuts, i dont know, but after getting the basics those tuts are nice
Awesome post i always wanted to learn flash but i couldnt find the right sites to teach me. I will get started right away thanks
