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.

Featured Flash FLA

» 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.
