Created in a secret lab, this tutorial describes the process of creating a Radial Wipe.
It will explore the sordid history of the now common transition and opens the mysteries of both ActionScript 2.0 and 3.0.

[ This is a real tutorial, with comic content. It is also a first submission to Newgrounds. Comments on the tutorial, sound quality, humor or code are welcome -Forrest ]

[EDIT: Play enters the tutorial normally. AUTOPLAY will start the narration when a new page is entered. In both cases you will need to manually change pages. Returning to the start page will reset the Autoplay status.]

[EDIT: Requires Flash Player 9]

Needs work

What are radial wipes? I'm seriously trying to do flash but I don't understand what they are so that basically eliminates the whole purpose of the tutorial and if I go through all of it, it's just going to be a waste of my time because I don't know what they are. Other than that this tutorial is good as far as the parts I skimmed through.

Nice preloader.

fepayton responds:

Good question. Properly, a radial wipe is a transition effect that sweeps away an image in a clockwise fashion. The background of the preloader is a Radial Wipe.

Other Radial wipes in this tutorial include: The Narration button, figure 3 on page 2, The Bananas, Tree and Hand buttons on the example page, and the golden sheep located on the last page before the credits.

not necessarily a flash. but it looks like you put a lot of work into it and it is very helpful. good job

fepayton responds:

I agree that interactive tutorials are hard to categorize. I chose to list it as a game because "tutorial" was possible genre of submitted game, but not for a submitted movie.

Such is life

I cant play, the game goes crazy

Its like all steps are going at a fast speed, and I cant do anything

fepayton responds:

I'm not sure of your exact problem but I have experienced similar effects when Action Script was disabled. I can only recommend getting the most recent version of flash player.

Sorry about that

[EDIT: Thanks for the response blackshaman24: updating the flash player version solved this problem]

People find this review helpful!
fepayton responds:

A good point. It is 800 x 600 which is a bit large. It runs in no-scale and will zoom while constraining the aspect ratio. I would suggest running it pop-up or saving the .swf file and running it using a player. I haven't gotten full screen mode working yet, but once I do I'll upload it again starting at a smaller size.
