Final Words

Also, you may be wondering...why do we need to do all this for the movie? We could've just imported the movie in Flash and left it in the quick time format. For this example, we could've left it that way. But, to get the most out of imported movies,  you can add some interactivity. You could use "Tell Target" and make only a certain part of the movie play at a certain time. You could introduce variables and not make the movie play until you define it to. There are limitless possibilities.

One last bit of information: Flash 5 cannot import AVI (Windows Movie Format), but Flash 5 can export your animations (if you wish) into the AVI format.

I hope that helped introduce the world of movies in your animations. I hope the information helped. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to post them on the Forum, and I will respond to your question within 4-12 hours.

» 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.
