Flash Tutorial
Learn to Design an Adobe Flash web page header
 I've been getting questions about Adobe® Flash®, so I thought I'd create this basic tutorial. I'm not a programmer, sothere will be very little action scripting. The purpose of this lesson will be to cover timeline animation and the skillsnecessary to create a basic .swf file and embed it on a web page. Since the animation in the header of my web site wasvery simple and easy to create, I'll use it as the example. The basic timeline principles are the same in most versionsof Flash.[This Tutorial as of April. 2008] Adobe® Flash® is the most popular way to add animation and interactivity to web pages. When you work on a flashproject, the source file that you save is a .
fla
. When you want to see how your project will look on a web page, youwill 'publish' the file as an .
swf
file which is embedded into a .html file. An
'object'
tag which contains the parameters forthe flash 'movie' can be embedded into an html file with Dreamweaver® or using the Flash application itself. This lessonwill be for the Windows operating system (Sorry Mac Users). So let us go through the process, step by step... Here are the images that I will work with. They've been created in Photoshop (see my web design tutorial). Note that mostof them have transparent edges. To create this effect (In Photoshop), select and copy each element from a layer ofthe design and paste into a new canvas. Make sure that the background layer is turned off. Save as a .png file andselect
Interlace:None
from the PNG Options.

 First create a new document (Hold>Ctr>New) in Flash. Select the latest Flash File type. I'll be using ActionScript 3.0, but Iwill not be using much scripting... Save the new document. Open the Document Properties box (Hold>Ctr>J). Choose the dimensions for the animation anda background color. I like to keep the frame rate at
30 fps
so that the animation runs smoothly.

 With the interface you can drag different palettes and position them to your liking. Here, I've chosen to place my
'stage'
above the
timeline
and properties palette. First, I will import all of my images (see my web design tutorial) into my library. My large background image will be aweb optimized
jpg
to reduce file size. The rest of the images (.png files) will be introduced in layers like a painting.
