This week we look at how to use sound in Flash. Importing sound and using streaming audio are covered.
A useful new feature added in June 2015, is Audio Splitting, for cutting up long streaming clips. Check out more info here.
Split Audio option in context menu
The stream audio embedded on the timeline can be split at ease using the Split Audio context menu. Split Audio enables you to pause the audio when it is necessary and then resume the audio playback from the point it was stopped at a later frame on the timeline.
Howdy! This week we look at how to use 3D in Flash. Technically it is 2.5D, which means that we are moving 2D objects around in 3D space. Unfortunately, Flash cannot create 3D objects like cubes or spheres. However, 2.5D is useful for animating objects like playing cards, that have very little depth. Check it out!
A more in depth look at animating a walk cycle in Flash, using The Bone Tool. I use an example from The Animator’s Survival Kit by Richard Williams to illustrate.
You can find the walk cycle guide here:
Note that the Bone Tool is only available in Flash CS4, CS5, CS6, and CC 2015. Flash CC 2013 and 2014 do not have the Bone Tool.
