This week Todd Perkins covers "Audio" and "Video" training in Flash CS5 Pro. Inserting sound and video into Flash movies is not hard to do, but it sure is nice watching a pro do his job! There are 15 minutes devoted to Audio and 18 minutes devoted to Video this week, not a lot of time, but it is quality time.

week 15: Flash Pro FLASH CS4 PRO

Original FLASH Pro Exer. by Prof. Al to supplement the course.

This week the Course Packet and Demo files Introduces Flash Sound to you.
It's going to be how well you follow directions as opposed to I can't make it work! We have had students on both sides of this statement over the years. Sound is not a really big thing to do, but it does take careful following of directions, miss a step and bingo, it won't work. I always suggest that students place a pencil mark after each step to make sure that no steps are missed. It will become more intuitive after you do many movies with sound; that's really what it all adds up to, experience.

The Demos this week are only available to those using CS4 or CS5, not any of the older versions of Flash. The Inverse Kinematics used in Demo 10 are easy to do and really fun too. In Demo 11 you'll actually get to use the new 3D Animation that Flash can do. Now don't get carried away, this is not some super CAD work, it's still 2D art in the third dimension that's all, but it's cool!

The Demos keep taking you deeper into what Flash can do for you, from a simple Preloader to learning how to embed Movie Clips inside of Movie Clips; it's really a lot of fun.

VoiceThread topic Week FIFTEEN: Flash Movie Clips are extremely powerful and flexible objects that have their own Timelines. I've shown you how to make them and by now, you probably have done one of the exercises too. So, tell me what a Movie Clip is and how to see if it is working properly, and why you should possibly make all Flash graphics into Flash Movie Clip Symbols? Bet you didn't see that one coming!
