Designating A Frame

Now that you understand printing in Flash player, we will now look a how to customise what frames your visitor can print.

Why should I customise my movie?
If you have a movie with 100 frames in it, the last thing you want is your visitor to envoke the Print command only to discover 100 pages later that you haven't been paying enough attention to the development of your site. Flash considers every frame printable until you specify a printable frame(s). The key here is to create important, information laden, beautifully laid out, frames with labels to indicate that these frame are printable so you leave the unimportant frames for the puposes of web animation only.

To do this, open your movie in Flash, select the relevant frame in the main timeline and choose Modify > Frame. The Frame properties dialog box will appear. Now select the Label tab and you should have this pop up on your screen.

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.
