Last Thursday Phil showed me how to possibly create my website in Flash.
It was pretty straight forward and didn’t seem too complicated. After a few “warm up” exercises in which I animated a dot and applied certain actions to it we then inserted a photo and applied actions to that as well as including audio when the photo enlarges.
The example can be seen here (it is a .fla file):
You can see the code above which was used to put the audio into the image action.
It is obviously only a rough draft, the audio would definitely need a control bar for the user to be able to pause and replay and the whole site would need some styling (though I’d like to keep it very simple).
The next thing to do would be actually creating a design/interface in Photoshop and decide on set sizes (images small and enlarged).
