A Flash Animation Tutorial for people who have never used Macromedia Flash before and totally drown in the technicalities
of all those tutorials online.

I hope it will be useful... I'm often a bit chaotic when it comes to explaining things ^_^;

Good thing this tutorial has about 100 screenshots o_o

Send me a note if you don't get it...
Or see HORRIBLE mistakes in this tutorial.
Don't flame me on my spelling mistakes, I'm Dutch x_o

I love feedback on the usefulness of this XD

For those like me who happen to have the old program, Flash MX 2004 Macromedia here is the site for the serial code to make it work when you install it.

For those who get the error that "Flash MX has stopped working" all the time, the solution I found was to change from Windows to Windows Classic.

This is an an-unbelievably good tutorial. Simple but super informative and easy to follow. I am trying to teach myself flash animation using "traditional" drawing methods (complete frame by frame is the plan) and this has been the first tutorial that doesn't feel like information overload. Plus with it in flash format there is no awkward skipping back and forth through a long video. Going to be practising using this a lot.

Thank you for an awesome tutorial! :bounce:

I don't know why but the brush tool doesn't have pen pressure even though I DO use a pressure sensitive tablet? there's nothing under the brush size and shape options.

Ich hoffe das liest jemand
Ich will mit Flash eine Virtuellen Rundgang machen der nix anderes sein soll als ein Dokument mit 4 Richtungstasten die wenn man sie jklickt einen zur nächsten Folie leiten
Soll heißen ich habe 4 Photos und will über ein Steuerkreutz je eine Ansteuern können. So ähnlich wie man in diesem Tutorial die seiten weiter klickt. Wenn jemand weis wie das geht sagts mir bitte

Your simple yet amazing tutorial eliminated my fears and doubts when looking at all the buttons and knobs I found myself overwhelmed with when I first opened Flash. I have already animated my own little panda, and look forward to the rest of your steps. Most worthy of a Daily Deviation. Thank you so much.
