Add Image to Motion Project
Now that we have added our Bokeh animation as the background for our Motion project, we can start working on the first section of the project. This six-seconds long introduction will immediately tell the audience what the product trailer is about.
Add Library Items to Stage – Flash ActionScript 3
In this tutorial, our goal is to load and run a movie clip with ActionScript. But, the movie clip is not on the stage when the website is loaded. It is stored in the Flash Library.
Add Static Text To Craft Product Trailer Template
In this tutorial, we will continue to work on the craft product trailer template. We are using Motion to create the template with placeholders, call drop zones, for the customizable graphics and other design elements in the template.
Add Static Text to the Flash Stage
So far you have set the dimensions of the stage and placed the image that will be the background for your navigational links at the top of the stage. Now you will add some static text to the bottom of the stage. Static text is text that does not change. This text will be the copyright information.
Add The Loader and ProgressBar Components To Your Flash Website
Now that you have completed your Portfolio.swf movie, we can add the Loader component that will load the external Portfolio movie into your main movie and a ProgressBar component (also called a preloader).
Adding Behaviors To The Menu Buttons For Your Flash Website
You need a way to navigate from one webpage to the next and like all websites we will use the buttons in the navigation menu. We have already created these buttons and now we will assign behaviors that will tell our Flash website which frame, and its contents, to display for each button.
Adding Branding Elements to Bumper Short
In the last tutorial, we used a masking technique to simulate a curved line drawn on the screen for a short branding bumper. Now we will add the branding elements to this bumper short.
Adding Glow Filter in Motion Project
In this Motion tutorial, we will add the Glow filter to our circle animated light. The Glow Filter will soften the edges of the circle to match the soft edges of the Bokeh lights in the background.
Adding Interactive Components in Flash Catalyst
In this tutorial, we will finish the portfolio slide-show in Adobe Flash Catalyst. If you have been following along, we have made our buttons and are ready to add the special effects.
Adding Navigation To Your Flash Portfolio
Add the navigation buttons to the portfolio movie that is part of the larger Flash website that we are creating. Once we import the button image and convert it to a symbol, we will be able to add the ActionScript that will make the buttons work.
