I am a member of a clan on a popular gaming website. I'd like to make fully interactive flash videos detailing certain game concepts. Is it possible to do this with screenshots (there are some drop down menus) or would I have to remodel the website in Flash?Basically, I'd like to know how to make it so I can tell the user to click a certain link and take a certain step, we've all seen those types of interactive tutorials.
just wanted to get some second opinions on something before I dive into a project.I would like to use the same effect executed in this website: http:[url]....how to go about doing that. I have a few ideas but am quite intermediate when it comes to code, so I was trying to search for some help topics and tutorials that might spark something.But I can't figure out what this sort of method is called! Where all the content slides like that as you click on different parts of the navigation.
* I should add that I am more proficient in AS2 but wouldn't mind learning how to do this in AS3.
I am looking to design and add an interactive flash part to our company's website. Since we do a lot of business planning and consulting, we have come up with a great idea, but unfortunately, none of us really know how to create it. Basically from what I have researched, I will need to incorporate animated buttons in a flash movie. I have attached a quick sketch of what the website will look like. The part I need to work with is the middle section with the boxes.
What I need to do is this: The 5 gray boxes need to be buttons that link to their related pages. When the page loads, I want the animation to draw the first box, create the line, draw the second box, draw the next line, etc. until all the boxes and lines are drawn. This is a process map and since we do a lot of these for our work, we thought it would be nice for us to incorporate this into our website. Furthermore, it would be ideal if these boxes were links to different pages on the site as well.
So my question is this: -What do I need to create in order to have this animation work -Where is a good place to start looking in regards to creating something like this -Is this even possible
I am looking to create a site (or part of a site) that is similar to the following links (which both contain panning movie clips with interactive elements within them). One of the keys to this is that it does not pan until you get to the extreme left or right portion of the screen, so that folks can have an effortless (and un-annoying) experience. Anyways...I have done a TON of research online and have found some stuff, but nothing that has really fit what I'm looking for. No more rambling. Here are the two sites.[URL]..."enter site" to see what I'm talking about)
I wish to create an interactive form in FLASH as part of a website. That is the user enters say width and height numbers in boxes and the form returns a price for that size widget. Is this possible in a FLASH based website? If so is there a specific name for this type of form so I know where to look to get help in creating one?
I want to create more than one button instance that go to different URL address's. From the Adobe Video Workshop, I got the code:
I get 1021 duplicate function error. I think I understand in priciple what's wrong but don't know how to fix it. MyI knowledge of Action Script 3 is zero. What I need is sample code that works that I could copy and paste, with appropriate changes.
I need to create flash interactive animation for one one of my regular clients, which should look and work similar to example in Nike store Customize:LinkThis is how my clients product (shirt) should look like and what sections should be editable: [URL]Basically it should work this way:1. End user chooses some element of shirt which he would like to edit (for example collar)2. When he clicks on that element, popup windows shows offering two main options: to change color and graphic (texture or pattern), same as on nike store customize example3. After user changes one section (collar) he goes to other section (lets say sleeve) and so on4.
User should be able to zoom in or zoom out that shirt and also if it is possible to rotate it in 4-5 positions5. At the end it should be able to save that work (and load it if he wants to later ) and be able to print it.I have made many animations, games, banners and similar using Macromedia Flash MX and Adobe Flash so I am not a flash newbie but this is a first time I am dealing with this type of work. I know that there is no step by step tutorial for this kind of custom interactive animation but I need some help and and advice how to create these three first steps (1. 2. 3). Regarding steps (4.) and (5.) I think I could realize it (zoom in, zoom out, rotate movieclip, save in database and print screen), because I ahd some previous experince regarding this part.
I am creating a project which involves the visualisation of signals and timeline, so I am looking for a charting program which allows me to zoom in and zoom out and with additional functionality e.g. drag and drop or highlight the area.
I have no preference whether it should be WinForms or Web apps, and I am fine to program in either Flash or Silverlight. So I would like to see if you guys can recommend some tools for use.
I have a website which i have built and work on alot, and i would like to create a sort of interactive map (the site is a surf webcam site, and i would love this map to be of the uk, and when you click on certain areas, it zooms in in a sort of google earth type thing, then showing locations of my cameras which the users can click to go to the correct page.) Now I did make something like this ( without the spinny stuff) using jquery and hiding divs etc, but I think to get the best effect would be to make some sort of flash applet. Now I am a complete begineer with flash.
What I try to make in Flash is some kind of interactive slideshow, with .swf files instead of static images. I want to have kind of control pannel with buttons numbered from 1 to n, always visible at the front layer. In the background, there will be swf files that change, for example, every 30 seconds. And each change consists of fade in and fade out effect of the swf container (and so the loaded swf file itself). During the swf changes, the buttons should change too by switching their states from 0 to 1 and so on. User should be able to skip to any frame he wants by clicking the corresponding button.This is the code I already have:
For the last couple of weeks, i've been trying to develope an interactive yearbook for my school. Im using an external XML, and trying to push all the data in the xml to assigned arrays. Also im trying to use a for loop to create empty movie clips. This empty clips will serve as "pages" if the total number of students is greater than 25. Also, on these pages im trying to attachMovie to a specific x, and Y, as you'll see in my source code.
Other than that, i can not figure out where im going wrong.When i first try to publish it, it gives me an error saying that the path is undefined, and will not load ANYTHING. if i make a few changes, it just sits there blanky.
I am currently working on a map of the US that is interactive. My goal is to be able to mouse over the states and have them turn red and then a window with contact information will open at your mouse when clicked. I am running into a few problems. I dont know the process for creating a color tween for my movieclips. my solution was to make a copy of the states, color them red and place them behind the gray ones and attatch an event listener to all the states that lowers their alpha when moused over. thats not really the problem though. for my code that i have used to call in the window is as follows. I will use texas as an example.
I'm new to Actionscript 3.0 and I want to create an interactive menu. On the left as I hover over the button "products" I want a sub menu to come into view (as seen in the graphic below). I've created all the graphics but there are a lot of translation issues.
Here is the code I've used: import fl.transitions.Tween; import fl.transitions.easing.*; var startY:Number = productsSub_mc._DisplayObject.y; var myTween:Tween; var myTween2:Tween; [Code] .....
"productsSub_mc" is the sub menu I created as a movie clip. Within that movie clip is another button labeled "videos". When I run the preview, I get the following error: 1084: Syntax error: expecting rightparen before semicolon.

I'm trying to create a simple interactive animation for a website that consists of three rollover areas on a page. When you mouse over an area, a bit of explanatory text is revealed by animating a mask over some text. The text is left displayed until a mouseover of a different area occurs.Let's call the three mouseover targets A, B, and C.A MOUSE_OVER event listener is registered for all three targets. In the event handler for each, I'm following a pattern like this:
I am creating an interactive animation of a cat you can stroke, rub, poke etc. I have implemented some basic functions in an attempt to recognize the different gestures, I am using the mouse down and mouse up events to track the duration and distance of the click.
My problem with this is that the 'distance' is measured from the start point and end point of the click, so if it ends near where it started you won't be able to tell how many times the click has 'rubbed' back and forth. Is there anyway to track the distance based on the full path of the click?
I am working on a project where I need an interactive matrix of 500x500 clickable lements. I thought this would be an easy task in actionscript3 but boy was I wrong. was able to create a matrix where each element was a Sprite object with attached Mouse click event. But here the performance problems begin. FlashPlayer10 can handle up to 100x100 matrix, but when I increase my matrix I start getting script timeout in browser player... Here is how my "unfinished" matrix looks like.
So how should I approach this problem? I was hoping flash will be able to handle so many elements, but I guess I was wrong. I want to have a pan control to pan around for objects off screen and of course zoom in/out control.It's true I'm not very professional in Flahs and actionscript but a friend who is told me this would be no problem implementing in AS3? I need this in flash as the thing needs to be hosted on website (unless there is a better tool for doing something like this...).
i want to see if these "build a." flash sites (to support a user customized ordering process) are done using regular flash or Flex?
All of these "walk a user" through a customized ordering process and capture all of their selection and showing them all of their customizations (and ultimately bring them to a final ordering screen). What's going on under the hood on these sites and are built in flash or flex? Is the person creating a separate image for every combination that you could possibly select or is something else happening here?
I still can't figure out if Flex or Flash is better for something like this. (why does adobe make these seemingly basic questions so complicated) Are there any good resource or tutorials for try to build this type of functionality in flash on a website?
what im trying to do is make an interactive webssite 100% out of flash.on one of the pages in that website i would like to have one of my custom youtube players that youtube lets you make and gives you an embed code for.problem is that it is an HTML embed code.ive tried everything to get this to work and the best i could do was get the player to work in an independant .swf file but whenever i try to incorporate it into a page in my website and load it in a browser i get a security error saying that i cant let flash access youtube and i have tried everyway on google to get around that with no luck.
I am in the process of creating an all-flash website for my best friend.It is for his music group and he would like to be able to update the dates on the upcoming events page every so often.s there a fairly easy way for me to show him how to do this, or should I just scrap the half-made flash site and opt for an html site?
Rather than build a controller for each video on our website, my IT dept wants me to build one controller that all videos can access. How do I do that and do I need a script? I know nothing about scripting and I'm a newbie in video publishing
I am a very basic user on adobe flash, basically all I use Flash for at this moment is to create animated gif or basic SWF website banners. The problem that I am encountering at this moment is that when I export to an animated GIF the image quality becomes pixelated (see sample image below), where if i export the same work to an SWF it appears normal, I have tried several different combinations on the settings when saving the GIF but everytime I get the same results. I would only use SWF formats but our website does not support SWF in every section.
i'm recently creating a full browser flash website. the important thing is: the stage.height should never be smaller than 768px because things are cut then. but how to tell actionscript not to make the stage.height smaller than 768 onResize? i've tried the following things, but they don't work:
This is my first time using Flash to create a website. I am not familiar with Action Script, its functions classes etc., however I am familiar in programming in JAVA. I will be using ActionScript 3 and Flash CS5. (I have Flash CS4 also if needed). I am trying to create a website with a scrolling background that has 4 different scenes. I have attached an image to illustrate my idea. There will be a user interface, consisting of 4 buttons, which will be on stage at all times. Each of the button will correspond to a different scene of the background. So if the user clicks on the third button, the background will slide itself until the third scene appears on the stage.
Questions in mind: How would the coding be like? I am planning to apply it to the button. So the background should shift ___ amount of pixels to the left or right depending on which scene the user is currently in. So if background is currently at position 800,0 (so the user is currently in scene 2) and the user clicks on 4th button. The background should move -1600 so the 4th scene will appear on stage. I am guessing there is 16 different cases I have to address. Assuming if that works, how would I also move the other objects on the scenes of background? Such as links to email address or my portfolio.
I want to be able to record 5-30 sec "green screen" segments on my video camera, extract them from the background, save it as DECENT QUALITY flash that can be embedded in my company website (small motorcycle dealership in Sweden) so that I can reach my customers in a better way. I have seen a website that does this and truly want to learn it. I am willing to buy whatever software is necessary.
