Animated Button

Select the first frame of the cube movie clip and copy it to the clipboard (CTRL+C). Return to the main timeline and insert a button symbol (CTRL+F8). Paste (CTRL+V) the first frame of the cube clip into the 'up' frame of the button and use the align tool (CTRL+K) to centre it.

Select the 'over' frame and press F6 to add a keyframe, press delete and then drag the cube movie clip from the library and align it to the centre.

If you have made a reverse rotation cube movie clip then you can insert it into the down frame, otherwise just press F6 again - and once again for the hit frame. The hit area needs to be defined by a solid shape - so select the square drawing tool and draw a square over the cube in the hit area frame.

Return to the main timeline and drag a copy of the button from the library onto the stage and add an onRelease action to it.

Featured Flash FLA
» Author: doc_chin7
» 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.
