First, decide what you want to create. Let's say you want to make a preloader for your new flash movie. A nice bar preloader. Simple, yet elegant. OK, now you've already made the animated bar graphic thingy, now you need to read a tutorial on how to get it to know when to start the other movie you made, the one of your cat playing with a ball of yarn.

So you goto flashkit and read the tutorial. But it doesn't make any sense. So you now read it again. And again. And it still doesn't sink in. So now you read it slower. And then even slower. Does it make sense now? Probably not.

So now you read it one line at a time and you try to do the steps one step at a time and things go good until you get to the part in the middle of the tutorial that STILL doesn't make sense. So you read it again. And again. And then you decide to go to a different flash website and look at a different tutorial on preloaders hoping maybe THAT will make sense, but it doesn't. So you go back and try again and you finally find that elusive dialog box in flash that you needed and you darn near jump for joy because that means you can finish the rest of the steps so you read the tutorial again and finish your preloader and test it.

» 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.
