Professional :: Using The Pencil/brush Tool In Drawing An Animation?

Feb 22, 2010

bit of a noob at flash, so I've been having a bit of a difficulty in using the pencil/brush tool in drawing an animation. I set a keyframe, and paint a yellow stroke.  Then i continue onto the next key. I then go back to the first keyframe, and want to paint a black stroke over part of the yellow stroke i made earlier.
after selecting this first frame (making the layer active), I go to change the stroke color of the brush to black but find that it now changes my yellow stroke (which I want to keep yellow) to black.  I see that in selecting the frame, by default whatever strokes were made on this frame are also selected (which I don't want). So I'd like to know how do I avoid altering my previous stroke and still put a different colored stroke overlapping it on the same frame?
also is it possible to append a brush/pencil stroke to an old brush/pencil stroke?

Professional :: Can't Get Pencil Tool Into Merge Drawing Mode?

Nov 29, 2010

I have downloaded the trial version of Adobe Executive Suite CS5. In the Flash Professional CS5 program I am trying to do a drawing with the pencil tool.  In the old version of Flash that I have (4.0) if I draw two lines that overlap, I can delete the line past the point where they cross.  In this version I can't do that.It treats each line I draw as a separate item and won't combine them.  I notice the properties panel says I am in Object mode which would be the reason.  However I can't get it to go to merge mode, which is supposed to be the default.Is this because it's the trial version and not all features work in that version? My email address is[url].... and I can be phoned at 541 782-5904 (Oregon).

Drawing Tool - How To Add Stroke To Object

Apr 16, 2009

I'm having a hard time with strokes. First I selected a stroke and the properties panel would not let me change it's thickness. How to add a stroke to an object. We used to have a tool that allowed us to apply a stroke to an object. That is gone now. How we attach a line to an object now?? It looks like Adobe has changed Flash CS4 to be more like Photoshop. It is about as intuitive as a tax form.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Drawing API And XML, And Dynamic Picture Loading?

Jun 4, 2006

I've loaded data from an XML file and put it in an array that contains everything. I'm trying to get the drawing API to draw some shapes dynamically on the stage using this information. They drew fine before when I was using hard-coded test values, but now that it's dynamic it doesn't work, and I think that's because the shapes are trying to draw before they get their values to draw with. Is there any kind of like "on(something)" I can use to ensure everything's fully loaded before I begin drawing? (The XML file's already in an "onLoad" function.)

Secondly, I'm trying to adapt the dynamic XML image gallery Kirupa tutorial found HERE to work when a button is pressed, and have the images load into a container created with the drawing API. Does anybody have any tips on how this could be accomplished? For reference, here's the code I'm using to create the boxes to house the images (each box consists of a nested preloader bar, and the actual container for holding the loaded image):

//main box
_root.createEmptyMovieClip("pictureBox_mc", tempClip_mc.getNextHighestDepth() + 5);

ActionScript 3.0 :: Create A Basic Flash Drawing Tool For An ELearning Project?

Jan 19, 2009

i'm a newbie using Flash CS4 and AS3. A retired social worker, I need to create a basic Flash drawing tool for an eLearning project to teach students how to draw their family tree.

The drawing tool would allow the students to add multiple circles and squares to symbolize their family members, plus text labels for names, ages, and they would need to be able to draw connecting lines between the circle and square symbols. Finally, in order to continue work on the drawing, over time, they would need to be able to save their drawings to be re-opened and edited (add new symbols, erase incorrect ones, etc.). Once the drawing is completed, they would need to be able to print a copy.

Being a newbie (but I have done some related scripting: JavaScripting-ECMA-262, HTML, CSS), I am not sure if this can be done in AS3, Flash CS4. But, if it is possible, I would like to learn how to create this.

Programming Language / Tool For Web-based Visio-like Drawing As Applied To Product Configurator

Jul 28, 2010

I have extensive experience with MS Visio Solution development, and have a need to provide similar functionality in a web interface in the context of a heavily visual product-builder or "configurator". Visio functionality that I hope to reproduce:Visual shapes stored in a sidebar, from which the user drags and drops onto a drawing area Shape creation on the user's end is probably not necessary... just arrangement, sizing, changing parameters etc.A back-end for extracting the parts the user has dropped onto the drawing area, including the parameters they've changed, dimensions, relations between components etc.In the most general sense, I just need an interactive interface.Given the above parameters, is Flash a good option? Is there a development environment that might be better?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Generate Drawing API Data From Drawing Object?

Basically I've got a reasonably complex drawing object in a fla and I want to reproduce it in a class definition using the drawing api. However obviously this is a tedious task, so is there some trick or automated method of doing this?

Last time I needed to do this it was a drawing of an arrow and I ended up writing down x,y,width,height values for everything but this one has curves in it which I don't have experience with drawing anyway.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Enabling Drawing Only When Drawing = True

I cannot get this to work. Without the "var drawing", "var drawing being true or false" and the "if statement", it works fine. But I need to add the "var drawing" so that you can only draw if you turn it on by pressing the "draw_btn" button. Note, I do not get an error, the script "apparently" contains no errors. Here is the code:

ActionScript Code:
var drawing = false

ActionScript 3.0 :: Drawing Api Drawing 40,000 Objects

Feb 18, 2009

I need to draw on stage about 40,000 4x4 squares each a different color. The color is determined by an xml file. I have this working in as2 and have converted it to as3 the problem is the amount of time it takes to draw is causing cs4 to time out. I have extended the script time out to 60 seconds. In cs3 as2 it would draw the squares in about 15 seconds. I was hoping as3 cs4 would improve performance but seems to be the opposite. I have tried several methods such as adding children and various drawing variations. the bellow seems to work the best, but is still causing flash to crash.

ActionScript Code:
import flash.display.DisplayObject;
import flash.display.Graphics;
import flash.display.Shape;

Professional :: Pencil Tool Draw Delay?

Oct 23, 2010

I'm new to Adobe Flash CS4, and I was wondering why on earth my pencil tool delays when I draw with it? I will click, draw my line (which will be invisible), then when I let go of my mouse/pen, the line appears. Is it supposed to do that? Is there a way to fix it? I hate it, because I can't see what I'm doing. I downloaded all of the updates, and I have more than enough memory on my computer and my processor is more than fast enough. My paintbrush works fine, it's just the pencil.
