For this assignment I had to use Macromedia Flash MX, a software application for creating interactive and animated web sites. I needed to create an animated flash file which was four pages long. The flash file would advertise a movie of my choice and would also have a navigation bar to take the user to further information about the movie.

Introduction
For this assignment I had to get to grips with Macromedia Flash MX, asoftware application which is used to create interactive and animatedweb sites. I needed to create an animated flash file which is four pageslong. The flash file would advertise a movie of my choice and must alsohave a navigation bar to take the user to further information about themovie. A weekly Blog was kept detailing each stage of development.
Week 1
This week I reviewed possible themes for my flash project. The contenders were:I decided to base the project on Looney Tunes as I was able to source more materialfor this on the internet. In fact Warner Bros. have an excellent Looney Tunes Flashanimation on their site which can be viewed by clickinghere.I also researched additional Flash animation tutorials other than the examples usedduring the lab classes this week.I had some difficulty using the pen tool in the lab. I found thistutorial which has helped a lot. This resource provides a lot of interestingexamples and tutorials which will be useful during this project.The following flash file I created following a tutorial form this websitewhich is also very useful. It was quite tricky but I got there inthe end. To view the animation click on the pencil image.
Week 2
1.The Simpsons2.Wacky Races3.Stop that Pidgeon4.Tom & Jerry5.Looney Tunes1
 
This week I had to start over again because the theme of the project I chose was not based on an actual movie. I decided to look at Disney's animated movies, the 2D onesrather than the latest computer animated releases like Cars, Shrek, Toy Story etc. Mykids' favourites include Aladdin, The Lion King and Winnie the Pooh. So I decided to base my project on Disney's Aladdin.I did a lot of desktop searching and found an excellent range of images which I coulduse for my animation. I imported them into flash and used the trace bitmap commandto convert them to vector images and then saved them as symbols. This web site gavea tutorial on tracing images which I found quite useful.Click here.I researched additional Flash animation tutorials and created the opening introductionto my project. It includes a transition, motion tweens, a motion guide and a wav file.This flash file will form the introduction to my project. The next stage is to storyboard what Iwant on the pages that follow. It took a longtime to get the motion guide to work properlyand also to get the fireworks to animate but Ithink I am getting the hang of this slowly butsurely. To view the animation click on the WaltDisney logo.
Week 3
The lecture on creating movie clips this week gave me an idea on how to improve myfireworks in the intro. I created two movie clips, the first was a set of three red balls2
 
which gradually get further and further away from each other and eventually they getsmaller and disappear. The second was a group of four yellow balls which do thesame thing.I dragged many instances of each movie clip onto the stage, resizing and flippingthem to create the two firework effects in the intro.The effects were much better in my opinionhowever I will let you decide for yourself.The link below plays the old intro and the bottom link plays the new one. 
Week 4
I have finally drawn out my storyboard for the rest of the animation and pages in the project. Please forgive the awful drawings.3
