Gradients Tutorial

Share Collapse

Author Comments

I decided to make a tut... its about creating and using gradients.
It's unfinished (you'll notice the interactivity gets less and less the further you get into the tut), but all the info is there...
I might finish it if the feedback is positive enough...
I should point out, this tut is for flash 5. I haven't got round to using mx yet, but I'd imagine it shouldn't be too hard to figure out how to do this in mx. I learnt most of this stuff in flash 4... it took me a while to learn how to do it all in flash 5, but once I did, it was actually easier... you might find the same with 5 -> mx.
And look for the easter egg... hehe...

Nicely done. ^^

I didn't watch the whole thing, I simply skimmed through it to see how it looked... And it looks pretty good!
Nice job! ^^

Thank you

This goes straight to my flash tutorial collection "How to make flashes" ;). Good work !

Thanx! I may have to make another tut some time... (ignore n00b tut - that's for n00bs :o )

I liked it, and I found both easter eggs....

Ok, before you updated it, the easter egg was hard, on the last frame, all i did was right clicj and hit play, now its updated, all you have to do is kepp hitting forward after the tute's over, i won't ruin the secret, but i'll hint, out of proprtion three D and obscure yet well done light.


Pretty good tutorial i guess...if you dont know how to use gradients. You can do some kool stuff w/gradients, and this shows you how to get started. Nifty. I couldnt find the easter egg as a button, but on the last frame i just right clicked and picked play. Youre cube was way out of proportion Evil San :) but since you did in in 5, i'll let it slide. peace...

MetaphorcE responds:

yeh, I kind of fuckd up the easter egg... it's been updated now, should be easier to find (although the part you didn't find still fuckd).
As for my cube being out of proportion... yeh, I guess it is (somethings not quite right about it in any case), but I included it to show people what you can do...

nice tutorial

I learnt a lot but i couldnt find the easter egg. Can you tell me where it is
