Otay, kind of a newby type question (we all have to have one or two of those right?) ;)

Does anyone know of any good Flash 5 Tutorials. I want to play around with making some intros to our Art Challenge contest, and I have not played around with Flash really before. I really just started tonight.

I used cool 3d 3.5 to make a flash object, dropped it into Flash 5 played around with adding some sound (with fades etc...). And was real impressed by the program. :)

What our ultimate goal is to produce a intro cd that we can ship out to art directors and such for the contest. And I felt that a nice litte 30 second flash intro would be a snappy way of getting their attention to start with.

Any thoughts??

(p.s. I will be doing a 'search' on the site for past postings in regards to this :) )

Have you tried flashkit.com or were-here.com? Those are where I started :) I also learned tons from taking an online course at lvsonline.com

Amy,

Thanks for the suggestions. I am checking them out right now. I buzzed by your site, very nice.

There was one line in the opening page that sounded confusing;

"Glowing Designs hire a professional web designer can be daunting."

Did you mean to say, "Designs understands that hiring........" Or something like that??

Just thought I would mention that.

Thanks again for the help. :)

Flash itself has excellent tutorials.

It is only really unhandy to do them on one computer, reading the tutorial, then trying it out in Flash, switching back etc.

Try to get two computers side by side (laptop?) one with the tutorials, one for testing it out on the Flash stage.

Very good idea. Infact, I have 2 of my computers next to each other. Great for gaming, lol. And I use my big monster number cruncher to do the graphics stuff, and animation. So I could put the tutorials on the other one next to me (the wifes, :) ).

Great idea !!

[ultrashock.com ]
[flashkit.com ]
[actionscripts.org ]
[actionscript.com ]
[dreamincode.net ]
[were-here.com ]
[moock.org ]
[bepp.8m.com ]

Best of luck...In addition you should pick up ActionScript the Definitive Guide by Colin Moock.

This will be enough to get you started atleast.
