Modular Functions in Flash CS3 and ActionScript 3.0 - Particle System Snow Scene Animation
In the next few tutorials we will create a particle system snow scene animation with ActionScript and Flash. There are many snowflakes falling and each flake is one instance of the same movie clip. So we need an ActionScript modular function to animate all of the snowflakes on the stage.

We have completed the snowfall animation for our Flash CS3 particle system. But the snowflakes seem to be missing from the bottom left corner of the stage. What can we do to adjust our animation? Will the Math.random() method save us?
Motion 5 Animation By Keyframe

Motion 5 Parallax Effect - The Graphics
In Motion 5, much like the Ken Burns effect, the Parallax effect is used to simulate movement of static graphics. The intro will consist of several layers of these graphics and by adding camera movement in to the mix, we will have a 2.5 D animation.
