Great tutorial!

If i hadn't have already known these things, I'm quite sure they would help me allot. So much, that I've actually linked a few of my friends to this tutorial to help them out! You covered everything that a basic animator needs to know. I liked it how you didn't add in any backgrounds and flashy pictures and stuff, look at the file size of this thing! It's tiny! That's awesome so whenever someone stuck on something at flash, they can quickly load up this tutorial and find an answer for what they're stuck on. You put this tutorial together very well, awesome work! 9/10

Thanks for your PM, (sorry i read that before your review) but thanks! We appreciate positive feedback!


Frankly, the tutorial was a piece of crap. First of all, the music got annoying after like 2 minutes, and secondly, the tutorial was the equivalent of a "copy & paste actionscript" tutorial. The blood tut was really bad, because you didn't explain the physics of blood, or how it ejects out of the body. Your city tutorial was the most well drawn/animated/put together, but still a very simple thing to do. Overall, it was a 2nd rate tutorial, and i'm giving it a 1/5 and 3/10 for trying.

For anyone who wants to view this tutorial, it is a VERY BASIC ONE!

UnusedName responds:

Ok, it's only basic because it's aimed at people who are just starting at flash.

It was good....

A good old basic tutorial... not as advanced but you did a good job. And one thing that got me though was the music, i had my speakers turned on very high and when this downloaded It was like a radio in my ear's with people playing very very loud.

UnusedName responds:

Ok, lots of people don't like it so i might take it off.

It's good.

It had a nice amount of information and was nicely put together. The music got a little annoying, but whatever... Also, please add a larger hitArea on the buttons that take you back to the menu, it was tedious having to click right on the word.

UnusedName responds:

Ok, noted for next time.


If your background music is just going to be a 4 note loop, at least have an option to mute the music. I liked the advice given for the rain, but for the blood I think you could possibly have developed a strategy or method for making blood in animations rather than just telling us to copy what you did at various stages in the animation

UnusedName responds:

It's just music, don't listen - don't rate it down just because of that, what did you think of the tut part?
