Flash Assignment #4: Interactive Flash Website

Okay, here it is.  Due to the constraints of the assignment, I had to add sound and animation.  Without those requirements, I wouldn’t have added the bee’s movement or the butterfly noise — I think that stuff is a little much.  Some of the pages are blank because they aren’t planned yet.  I’m also impressed that with all the stuff going on, the file is only 70KB!   Enjoy!

Flash Assignment #3: Kuroneko003

This time I made an animation using the graphic I made earlier.  This assignment drove me nuts because I had to fix the Illustrator file such that the drawing layers made sense when I imported them into Flash.  Then I had scaling problems when I separated the eyes, the whiskers, and pupils so I could animate them separately.  I learned a lot though toughing it out and I’m pleased with the result.  Check it out!

Next is the interactive website, which I plan to build off of this.

Flash Class

I’m currently taking Flash Class as part of my effort of picking up some new skills.  Fortunately, my local university extension offers a web design certification program for folks interested in continuing education.  I think I’m going to go ahead and do it.  So anyhow, I’ve had two sessions of the intro level Flash class and so far I really like Flash.  It seems like a powerful tool that I could use for presentations and to make prototype websites and interfaces.  Anyhow, here’s some stuff I did while trying to pay attention to lecture.  Little did I know we were going to do a bouncing ball the first day — about an hour into the 4-hour session I had already started playing around and made the bouncing ball.  I also made some dripping blood which wasn’t part of the class, but … well … you know how that goes.  Anyhow, Flash is great.  One you learn the basics, you can do some neat things very quickly.  Check out the fun I had :).

Next class I have to turn in a 15 – 30-sec banner ad that advertises me in some way.  I will post it here too when I’ve completed it.  I’m pretty dangerous now that I’ve had 8-hours of instruction ;p.
