Import the Bitmaps

Now you need to bring the bitmaps back into flash. At this point, you can use another new movie (that can later be converted into a movie clip) or insert it directly into your final product. In the demo fla attached to this tute, I have inserted it directly into the finished movie for simplicity.

Highlight the first key frame where you want the bitmap sequence to be inserted. Now select File->Import and set "Files of type:" to "All Files (*.*)." You will notice that flash has appended a number to each file you exported earlier, assigning "0001" to the first file. Click on this file to import.

When you do this, flash recognizes that this is the first of a sequence and opens a dialog that says "This file appears to be part of a sequence of images. Do you want to import all of the images in the sequence." Say "Yes" to this dialog.

Flash now imports the sequence of bitmaps into individual frames in your movie. That's really all there is to it. Play the movie back, and there's your MOV (more or less) embedded into your flash presentation.

hiker is located in Nashville, Tennessee and has been an independent contractor for over 10 years doing applications development programming and more recently web site development/programming which has led to him becoming a flasher. "hiker" was his nick when he first logged on to the Internet in 1994 and has stuck with him ever since. Some people wonder if he has ever logged *off* the Internet since 1994

» Description:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
