How to Create a Simple Flash Movie in Flash CS3
When you’re first learning how to do Adobe Flash, it’s a good idea just to create a simple flash movie. It doesn’t really make a lot of sense but it shows you how Flash really works. So that’s what I’m going to do now.
So first of all, up here on my timeline, on the red highlight that means that I’m currently on frame one of my movies. I’m at the very beginning on my movie. So what I want to do at the beginning of my movie is I want to add something to my stage that will show up during my movie. So I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to choose a shape. I’m just going to choose a rectangle and I’m just going to draw one on the screen. So that’s what’s going to show up in the first scene of my movie.
Now, I’m going to go ahead in five seconds into the movie on the fifth frame. I want to add something new. So I’m going to right click on that frame and I’m going to go to insert key frame. That’s just telling “Flash I’m going to do something not new now.”
So I’m going to go ahead and I am going to draw an oval. Let me go ahead and change my fill in and my stroke for that. And I’m going to draw an oval now. So, on the first frame of my movie I’m going to have this rectangle. When I get to the fifth frame I’m going to have this oval show up. Now, on the 10th frame, I’m going to go ahead and create a new key frame and I think there in my 10th frame I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to draw another oval overlapping.
Let’s go and all the way on my 20th frame, let’s do another key frame. I’m going to choose my selection tool now and I’m going to take away this shape when I get to my 20th frame. So we’ve used some shapes. We’ve created a really simple movie. Let’s go ahead and click back on our frame one and let’s go ahead and go to control and then go to play and we’re going to play our movie. And you could see I want it sort of fast. Let’s play it again.
