This is an introduction to the Flash user environment for aspiring developers! I made this in 1999, so it is probably featuring the Flash 3 layout. Things haven't changed TOO MUCH, though, so it's still a decent intro.

I am submitting this to the Portal before I overhaul our tutorial page to be part of the collection system. To make a long story short, all the tutorials need to be in the Portal in order to be featured through the database system. This tutorial was never part of the Portal before.

Thanks for the useful tutorial!

I've been wanting to learn flash for a long time already and finally I made my first little flash with the help of this tutorial. Yeah, it's outdated, but it's still useful.
I can provide comments for the actions in the flash as they are in the version CS3 of Adobe Flash. Hope it helps newcomers:
%u2022 Click on the CIRCLE button -> Click on the RECTANGULAR button and then "O" on your keyboard.
%u2022 Insert/Convert to Symbol - >Modify/Convert to Symbol
%u2022 Insert/Keyframe ->Insert/Timeline/Keyframe
%u2022 Double clicking on this frame... -> Right Mouse Button clicking on this frame opens the "Frame Properties" drop-down menu, where you must select "Create Motion Tween"
Thanks again, Tom Fulp and good luck for aspiring developers. ;)

Outdated? Sure. Useful? Yes.

I've been a visitor of Newgrounds for QUITE some time, recently created an account, and just now made my first flash because of THIS flash. So what if it's outdated? It still tells you what to do, and you just have to look for that specific menu or option. It's really not THAT difficult, and not really that outdated. I opened Flash Pro8 for the first time, today, and could still figure out the changes and whatnot.
So, thank you, Tom, for making this tutorial.
