Im a really lazy person but im so inspired to make flash movies. Im getting better all the time but i just with i could make movies as well as some of these people on NG. Does anyone have tips on how to get better faster and learn new techiques to Flash?
I suggest checking out the Flash Tutorials collection we have here on NG. It has a bunch of really helpful tutorials and links if you're interested in getting to learn Flash faster. Though before you check out any Flash tutorials at all, I think it's mandatory to look at this.
So basically, before you animate, I suggest checking out a bunch of Flash tutorials so you have a basic understanding of the program itself. If you don't have any artistic ability then I'd suggest looking up art tutorials - a poorly-drawn but well-animated cartoon usually doesn't look that appealing, despite the quality of the animation.
I made some tutorials myself:
Flash 8+ Blurring
Flash 8+ Morphing
Flash 8+ Importing Videos
And lastly, take your time. Don't rush it - a lot of nice flash animations took several months, maybe even years to complete. Hope that helped!
