|In this tutorial, we will build a website header in PhotoshopR which we will animate in FlashR CatalystTM. The animation begins with an empty background, and the design elements slide-in to "build" the header before our eyes. The animation will be programmed to begin "on load" and will last just a few seconds. This website header will be for a factious greeting card business. |
Our first step is to build the header in Photoshop. We will put each design element on its own layer in preparation for working with them in Flash Catalyst. As you can see, we will have 6 design elements.
