I've been working on my flash movie some more.

Check it out!

I think I finished with the sound. I was not liking the icons that were in there, so I've started to redo them with little animated ones. Check out the new "music" and "journal" icons.

? about flash

hey jarrett thats some excellent flash work.... the icons are perfect... at first i thought the animated icons were done using swift3D which by the way i havent seen much of lately... anyways as i did more of a close inspection and i saw that you are using some really nice masking effects.... please correct me if im wrong... my question is where about would i go for some good masking help or any books you may suggest? -dilz

Re: ? about flash

I've read about Swift3D, and thought I might like to try it sometime. But so far these "3d" icons are animated by hand.

There aren't really any fancy masking tricks used on the icon animation. The reflection on the CD is a white rectangle masked to the shape of the CD, but that's about it.

The only advice I can give is to experiment with the software. I read a Flash 3 book years ago, but you really have to jump in and play with the program to figure out all the tricks.
