Part 2 - creating the flash movie

OK here I will assume you know how to make MovieClips etc, if you don't this tutorial will make no sense to you.

  • Create four layers with the names - Labels, actions, data fields/buttons, and connect.
  • Create keyframes at frames 1,2,3,11,12,and 13 of the actions layer.
  • Create keyframes at frames 1,3,11, and 13 of the labels layer. Name these: 1 = headlines, 3 = loaded, 11 = story, 13 = loaded2

  • Create keyframes at frames 3 and 11 of the data fields/buttons layer. On frame 3 create 4 buttons with dynamic text boxes with variable names of h1,h2,h3,h4. On frame 11 create two dynamic text boxes with variable names userheadline and story(userheadline = singleline story = multiline).
  • Create keyframes at frames 3 and 11 of the connect layer. Write the text connecting in the middle of stage at each keyframe. Make them span only two frames each.

» 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.
