-Ultimate Flash Tutorial

Author Comments


Made for beginners, but always good to have a pro review it.

All AS in it is AS2.

Made with Flash CS3 pro, but i have used previous versions of flash (MX 2004, 9/pro 8 and CS2) and there are very little changes in the programs considering what is in this tutorial.

If the button to something doesn't seem to work, click it again and harder. I've tested it all and it all works. Just gotta click it properly *shrug*

My first flash tut was crap. This is much better because I have developed from layouts with no point and vibrant coloured BG's to simple easy to read designs since my last tutorial.

I made this mainly because when I started flash it took me about 2 years to learn all the basics and it was extremely difficult and frustrating not being able to find a good easy to understand tutorial.

I have made this the most explanatory as I could personally, but if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask.

I'm also not looking for criticism, but I am only hoping that this will help out as many newbies as possible and not have them go through what I had to

Good Tutorial having some trouble though

This is a great tutorial, one problem, on the drag and drop code, it won't stop dragging even when I let go of the object, can you help with this, I've been having this problem with several codes. Thanks tough!

Very good.

I use Flash Cs3 pro and this is really helpful. Except, I need somewhat better help in Actionscript. Could you help with that?


how do I make more scenes? and also, special effects, like darkining into another scene and stuff

I knew it all, but good to see AS2 again!

No one uses AS2 any more!
