Teaching myself Flash

Saturday, February 10th, 2007

I am playing with Flash this weekend, which is partially my reason for not updating more. Though I have no real excuse. There is plenty to comment on and say, and I will probably do so on a few items that caught my attention this week later on tonight.

For now, though, I’m teaching myself how to embed video in Flash and creating a silly series of videos from my collection of Stater clips.

As I have previously said, my Flash skills leave a lot to be desired. I’ve decided to beef up on them. So, little by little I’m going to try and learn how to do some basic things. I wanted to learn the video bit first just because it is something cool I can look at immediately and say, “Hey, I did that and I didn’t know how to an hour ago.” :) I’m finishing off encoding and adding the last of the three clips right now. If it doesn’t look too bad and none of them is too incriminating, I’ll probably post the project here later tonight.

And, if anyone has good tips for Flash tutorials, please pass them along.
