The Basic Movie

All right,let's start.
We'll begin by making our basic bricks, the framework for our tutorial. This part will be as short as possible since I suppose that if you are trying this tutorial, you already feel quite at ease with flash. If not, I suggest you study the Getting Started tutorials first.
These are the things we need:

Start by creating a new movie approximately 400*500 in size.
Then create 3 layers: actions, buttons, and lines. Create 4 frames on the two last layers and insert ten blank key-frames on the actions layer.
Now name these blank key frames in this order:
  • "model", for loading the points and lines
  • "start", for initiating all variables, etc.
  • "loop", for the basic program loop
  • "loop2"
  • "draw", for the drawing routine
  • "rotx", for the rotation around the x-axis
  • "roty", guess
  • "rotz", same again
  • "zoom", for calculating the zoom
  • "drawline", the line-drawing routine
Now we have the frame of our movie. Note that I am not making a preloader, you can do that all by yourselves!

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
