|Now that we have our storyboard and design elements ready, we are going to start working on the first part of the ecard envelope animation. The first thing we will do is make a motion path.|
To make it easier, we will be working on the envelope animation in sections. If you take a look at the first row of the storyboard, our first section is the animation that makes the envelope fly onto the stage. While it is moving onto the stage it will rotate clockwise and flip over a few times. It will end with the front of the envelope centered on the stage.
Open your fla file and let's get started. At this point, we have all our design elements in the Flash Library and our stage and Timeline are empty. Also, we already have set our Document settings to a Width of 700 px, Height of 500 px, Background color of your choice and Frame Rate of 24 fps.
