Composition, Rain, Masking, movie clips and more. A great source for the beginner as well as the more advanced flash user! Also contains instructions on building a v-cam for your flash movies!

Note: you may want to adjust the quality to medium (right click>quality>mediu m)

People seem to have trouble with the easter eggs, so I'm gonna give some directions (I thought they were all so obvious):

Firstly there's access to the sound test hidden on the main menu. It's a small hidden button that's attached to the top left video screen. Mouse around the swing-arm joint.

In the Masking section there's a button in the shape of a lady's panties in the right side of the screen about half way down. You can click it at any page, but if you have trouble, flip to the page with the actual female figure and point to her nether regions. This takes you to a night club scene with some info on the music used in the tutorial.

At the end of the credits sequence there's a rather large button in the shape of a bar wrapped around one of the lines of text that hangs on the screen as the music fades. This will take you to an object viewer. You'll have a spy glass to view descriptions of some of the various objects that were made for the tutorial. There are several pages.

Also, if you're paying attention, there's several places during the tutorial where there's a funny-looking black scribble down near something. That scribble is very small text that you can zoom in to actually read about where to find the Easter eggs.

f**k yeah

i gave it 10 just for the song sof storms ;)

Helbereth responds:


You have no idea how many incarnations of that intro I actually made...

I think it was something like twenty.

Used either the 'song of storms' version there or 'I am Ultimecia'.

Wow, I wish I HAD flash. . .

This was an EXCELLENT tutorial, ALL of you------>
I only wish I had any version of flash so I could utilize it.
ALL of the sections were awesome and explained VERY clearly.
You work well together as a team.
Are you all planning on doing anything else together again?
The music was was pretty good as well.
In fact, I find myself wanting to listen to a few of them withOUT even having the tutorial playing. Until you Guys decide to make something else together OR solo, either way. . .

.........Take care, be good and keep teaching, please.period

Helbereth responds:

It may look like there's a team of us, but I can assure you, it's just me.

This tutorial was so helpful for me to get out of spriting! It makes me realize how great I can make my flash look without having to be an awesome artist with the best programs! 11 out of 10 stars!

Helbereth responds:

Thanks.. I think...

There's nothing wrong with sprites when used properly... they're limited, though.

I knew half of these things but others no and this is really helpful

Helbereth responds:

Well, really you should know some of the things about a tutorial before you ever open it - unless you've literally never used the program or whatever the tutorial was made to illuminate.

You helped me sooo much by showing me how to make the camera thing, it is sooo much easier! I can't thank you enough man!

Helbereth responds:

Yeah that camera probably saved my sanity.
