I Learnt How To Use Macromedia Flash To Create Animation!

I am attending a 3-day Macromedia Flash course at Avantus Training in CPF Building. The course is sponsored by my office and it ends on 1 Aug 2007.

At the course, I learnt how to create interesting animation.

Follow the link below to see an example of what I created.

Hmm... there must be something wrong. When I click the link, your blog post launches in a new window.

I believe they call it Adobe Flash now ever since Adobe consumed *sorry* bought Macromedia.

Kenneth - Hmm... strange that the link doesn't work unless I write it out in clear. Should be okay now, right?

pinto said...

Still not working. I copied and pasted.

Does your animation signify red light district?

Shilpa said...

yah, i confirm the link not working!

Lam Chun See said...

Works for me. It's a flashing bulb right? cool dude.

Thanks to all for testing out my link. Ya, how come ah? It worked just now when I was using the classroom's PC at CPF building. Then when I came home, my PC gave the same problem. *Scratching head*.

Why did it work for Chun See then? It must be some local settings on your PC that's affecting the playing of the flash file. (Maybe popups are blocked?) Sigh, that's why I say it's sometimes difficult to understand computers. That is also why I can never finish learning about them.

So until some smart dude (Kenneth, are you listening?) helps me solve the problem, do as what Kenneth did - right-click on the link, click "Copy Shortcut" and then paste the link (Ctrl-v) into the "Address" box of your browser. Then hit "Enter" on your keyboard and it should work.

Yes it is a flashing lightbulb from Macromedia Flash and not from the flasher, haha. We are learning the very old version of Macromedia 5.0, would you believe it?

Blogger does not accept flash files (.swf) so I cannot practise what I learnt in my blog. However you should be able to upload animated gifs which are readily available.

Sometimes I wonder how detail they go into for such courses. It's easier to do interactive animation using Flash. At one time, lots of website had intro using Flash but due to the long loading time, many abandon it.

For simple animation, it's easier to use a much easier GIF animation software than Flash. Reason - Most users can detect and fun GIF but not Flash.

Etel - Thanks for the photo of the home-cooked rickshaw noodles. It looks yummy.

One bowl used to cost 60 cents at the stall at Maxwell Food Centre. However last Monday, I discovered that the price had been increased to 70 cents already. But it is still cheap because other places sell it for $1 per bowl.

Laokokok - It's a 3-day course. If you really pay attention and do all the exercises, you can learn quite a lot. But as with all things, if you don't practise what you've learnt, you will soon "return all the knowledge to the teacher".
