'Flash 8 For Noobs' Tutorial

Hey everyone, this is a tutorial I did for my IST (computing) assignment in year 9, so i decided to submit it :D
Firstly, if you don't have Flash Player 8+, chances are you wont be able to properly view this tutorial, so please get it from if you don't have it.
Secondly, here's a link to the trial version of Flash CS5, which is the most recent version of Flash as of July 2010: [link] , for those who want to check out Flash before getting the full version.
Right-click menu ftw! Right-click for chapters and stuff. Try it! :D
This tutorial shows off my old but somewhat electrified intro. Turn up the bass for an audio "experience"! (ie. turn down your sound if you don't want a hearing aid any time soon)

Remember, this tutorial is aimed at a noob to the Flash program, someone who has never used Flash before and wants to learn. So don't go complaining to me if its boring. xD

The first step to recovering from noobness in animation is motivation, and finding your style. This tutorial can help with motivation and basic knowledge but you'll have to find your style yourself, and this usually happens over time. If you do give up along the way, try to come back to it at a later stage.

Ok, my rant's over ^^;
Enjoy! ^^

*EDIT* Ahh the sound's out of sync as usual. Meh.
Newgrounds version: [link] vote if you're bored.
If you wanna check out some of my new works, head over to my website at this link: [link] ^^ */EDIT*

Very interesting. Personally, I hate motion tweening. The animation never feels right with tweening, even if I adjust the easing movement.

Good tutorial - should be good to get anyone who doesn't know flash started.

heh, this took like 5 min to explain what a class taught me in 3-5 weeks (they move veeeeeeeeeeeeeeery slow) :XD:
Much more simple and easier to understand.

Where can I get Flash 8??? When i search it in Adobe it just shows me Flash Player and Flash CS5.
Kittyfur's avatar
I think it's Macromedia flash, not Adobe flash?
Pwnage-Block's avatar
Macromedia is part of Adobe. :evileye:

This is going to be very useful when I need to use flash since I'm a begginer at this. No, wait, I'm a noob at flash.
