Basic Slide construction - flash based form

(c)Mark Hopgood, PlasmaNet UK Ltd 2005


PlasmaNet ( is browser based software which broadcasts tv and info channels over any network including the internet. PlasmaNet can be used for creating advertising channels or displaying information in public places, receptions or even corporate desktops. PlasmaNet is used by companies such as BP, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Sony Style, Toys R Us and Coca Cola in their corporate communications.

The essence of PlasmaNet is that you can control screens of information from a central point and use popular tools to create content, such as flash, windows media, powerpoint and jpg.
A slide is a basic PlasmaNet component and EasyEdit (r) templates are the exclusive name given to editable slide templates. EasyEdit templates allow you to create slides that anyone can edit, provided they have a browser and flash player installed (99% of the people on the web!)

This tutorial covers the creation of a Flash basic EasyEdit slide for use in plasmanet.

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.
