Advanced Swish Techniques

As most of us know, very professional looking text effects can be made using Swish in a fraction of the time that it would take in Flash. But when you've used all the basic effects - what then? For a very simple looking program there is a hell of a lot more than first meets the eye In this tutorial I'll show you how to simply, and effectively, combine, expand on and touch up the basic effects to produce much more advanced presentations.

In this tute I'll be sharing some of the more specialist Tips, Tricks and Combinations I use. I won’t waste any time detailing how to get started in Swish or even how to create the basic effects, etc. There are other tutorials here that will do that. If you've never used Swish before you may want to read some of them first. Any screen shots which are included are '1 frame stills' taken mid way through tweens which are regularly 20 - 30 frames long. Bear this in mind if you think it looks 'odd'.

» 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.
