This is my first tutorial, so vote fairly
for those who cant see the action script:
onClipEvent (load) {

movieWidth = 550;
movieHeight = 400;

i = 1+Math.random()*2;
k = -Math.PI+Math.random()*Ma th.PI;

this._xscale = this._yscale=50+Math.rand om()*100;
this._alpha = 75+Math.random()*100;
this._x = -10+Math.random()*movieWi dth;
this._y = -10+Math.random()*movieHe ight;
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {

rad += (k/180)*Math.PI;
this._x -= Math.cos(rad);
this._y += i;
if (this._y>=movieHeight) {
this._y = -5;
if ((this._x>=movieWidth) || (this._x<=0)) {
this._x = -10+Math.random()*movieWi dth;
this._y = -5;

thanks to www.kirupa.com for posting the action script

I like the concept! A perfect tutorial to make for this time of the year. Good interface, good concept, and easy to understand. No flaws what-so-ever. Keep up the good work!

Thanks, a lot but this is very early for me. I'm hoping by next season I shall be able to produce a tutorial two times this.

(title in work)

^^Good Points^^
Well apparently you got the effect right. I've been trying to find this effect and a code that would work in CS3 for a while now. Unfortunately this one did not.

^^Needs Improving^^
Didn't even work. I copied the script in your comments exactly as typed, and copied the other code exactly as well. Still got many bugs in the script and I'm left with a script that doesn't work.

stolen-name responds:

Sorry it did not work for you man :(
People seem to say it works
I'll try to prevent it next time, thanks for the heads up

Good good =)

I liked it, it teaches you how to make snow or rain or stuff fall down =) thx now i know how to do that.

stolen-name responds:

No problem bud, I hoped it helped you!

not bad one

it was an alright tutorial, definitely appropriate for this time of year, and i think that a lot of people making christmas animations or even skiing or other snow animations or games should maybe check this one out, as it may benefit you.

stolen-name responds:

Thanks a lot for the review and thanks for the alright, its my first tutorial.


But please fix up the following problems:

1- Detail (it lacks detail on each frame)
2- Qaulity ( the quality of the screen shots were bad)
3- Dynamic text ( so the person taking the tutorial can copy the text down so they can paste it into there document. At the moment its static text!)
4- Better button (the next button looks really boring and rushed. Take time with these things.
5- Music (self explanitary)

If you can fix these things up Im sure you will go far!

Ok work!
