The firework flash

Now create a new movie clip and call it explode. Choose the smallest brush size and choose the colour red. Create a sort of diamond shape with four dots. Make a keyframe on frame 15 and make a circle shape by multiplying the origional four dots and adding in where needed. This time create a shape tween. Copy the frames in it and go back to Scene 1. Paste the frames after the previous ones. If you want to, you can create multi-colour displays. On the last frame, add the following code:


This tells the movie to go back to the start, only add this if you don't want to put on any more fireworks. You could make a whole show with the explode only, like a firework display.Save your movie and test it with pressing F12 (it works better this way, trust me). I did it with two colours but you should try more. You could even try and make shapes with it. Have fun and email me at if you have any problems.

» 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.
