Flash Tutorial - Animated Filter Fuzz Effect


Free Flash Tutorial

Step 1    <<   Previous      Intro   1   2   3     Next   >>      


Step One: Setting up the Document

  1. Open a New Flash Document: File > New (Ctrl N)
  2. If the General Tab is not selected, select it: General Tab
  3. Select Flash Document: Flash File Flash File (ActionScript 2.0) or (ActionScript 3.0)
  4. Note: There is no ActionScript used in this tutorials so the version is not important. If you are not sure which version of ActionScript to use just default back to ActionScript 2.0. You can always change this to ActionScript 3.0 later by going to File > Publish Settings > Flash > ActionScript version.

  5. Click: OK
  6. Important Note: You will not see the Filters unless your Movie is set to be published in the Flash 8 Player.

  7. Go to: File > Publish Settings
  8. If the Flash Tab is not selected, select it:
  9. Note: If you cannot see the Flash Tab make sure the Flash Box is selected: (look under the Formats Tab).

  10. For Version select: Flash Player 8 (or up)
  11. Note: The Flash filters will not be visible unless you select Player 8 (or up) so if you are using an earlier version of Flash you will not be able to follow this tutorial.

  12. Click: OK

  13. Go to: Modify > Document (Ctrl J)
  14. Set the size: 250 x 50
  15. Set the Frame Rate to: 24
  16. Note: The default is 12fps (frames per second) which maybe a bit slow for animation. If you predict your file will end up being large stick to 12fps because any additional quality maybe lost as the users computer struggles to download the frames quickly enough. The choice between 12 and 24fps is always a compromise between quality and download speed. 24fps is higher quality but 12fps downloads faster.

  17. Click: OK

  18. If your Property Inspector is closed, open it: Window > Properties > Properties (Ctrl F3)
  19. Your settings should look similar to this:

    Settings as seen in the Property Inspector.
