When you watch the tutorial you will see there are a few extra functions to the brush tool. I really like the way you can choose how you want to paint your image or shape. We are coming to the end of tools soon and then we can get into the exciting stuff
In Flash you can make any shape that you want it is truly amazing. Another tool well worth learning as this will really come in handy when we get into animation and tweening. Later on in the course we will go over another way of using the shape tool to make it even more powerful
I love the pen tool, this is such a powerful tool. You use in a similar way to the photoshop pen tool. The pen tool inside of flash will allow you to get crystal clear edges not like in photoshop, this is truly a powerful animation tool and we shall definitely be using it in a few projects later.
Now time to have a little bit more fun, what we are going to get into now is the properties. Each tool in flash has it’s own properties. Properties will allow us to modify the stroke we made with the pencil tool, we will be able to adjust the height and width and also change the thickness of the stroke. Let me know if you get any problems
The pencil and pen tool are a couple of my favorite tools in flash, if you are going to get into drawing animation then learn this tool as it will come in really handy later. Let me know if you run into any problems
In this tutorial we are going to finish off on our panels, I will quickly show you how to save them and get the workspace that you want, having a good workspace that you are comfortable with can help you a lot. Let me know how you get on
Using a few simple techniques we will build and animate a business card in Flash. The idea is that when the user clicks the business card it flips over and diplays information on the back and when it is clicked again it flips back over and displays the front again. We will cover using the Motion Editor to tween using the 3D rotation tools in Flash CS4 as well as scripting the button to react to a click only when in a certain position. Check it out and have a blast.

Ok i know this might seem like a silly tutorial but really it is not. You do not copy and paste the normal way in flash. Generally when i copy something i do a Ctrl+C and then to paste Ctrl+V, but inside of flash you need to right click and choose copy frames or keyframes. Really basic stuff but thought i would chuck it in there. Thanks guys and gals
