Viral Video: Exploiting the YouTube Trend
How Video Sharing Works
Some video-sharing sites, like YouTube and Blip.tv, allow you to record video directly onto the Web site without any special software. Direct recording is particularly useful for video bloggers, or vloggers, who enjoy being able to post quick video messages directly from their Web cam. Here''s how direct recording works:
Connect your video recording device to your computer using the USB or Firewire cable that comes with the device. If you have a built-in Web cam, that''ll be the default recording device.
Go to the direct recording section of the video-sharing site. On YouTube it''s called "Quick Capture."
Turn on your recording device and press the record button on the Web site.
When you stop recording, the video-sharing site will optimize and compress the video clip.
The new clip will automatically appear on the Web site, no editing or uploading required.

Make Your Own Video Mashups for YouTube
Get Behind the Camera
After signing up for a YouTube account, it''s time to pick up a camera and make like Spielberg. What kind of camera? Just about any device that can record video can shoot footage for YouTube. That includes camcorders, digital cameras, cell phones, and even webcams.
Not surprisingly, camcorders afford the best image quality and the most versatility when it comes to video editing. The latest high-definition models can capture video at resolutions up to 1080i, but even standard-def digital camcorders will produce sharp-looking images. Granted, all videos uploaded to YouTube wind up at the relatively low resolution of 640 by 480, but the better your original video looks, the better your finished YouTube product will be.
Any camcorder will do, as long as you can transfer the video to your PC for editing. Note that some high-def models record video in formats not yet supported by mainstream video editing software, while older analog camcorders may require extra hardware to make the PC connection.
As for digital cameras, most models can record video with sound. The resulting AVI or MPEG files can usually be uploaded directly to YouTube, no editing or file conversion required--though obviously some editing may be desirable. If you''re in the market for a new camera, make sure that it can record video at 30 frames per second (fps), and that it doesn''t limit you to fixed-length clips. Ideally, it should be able to record as long as space is available on the memory card, rather than limit your videos to just a minute or so apiece as many older models do.
One model in Casio''s Exilim series includes a YouTube capture mode that records video based on YouTube''s recommended resolution, file size and format, run time, and compression level.
Pure Digital''s Flip Video pocket camcorders--which record YouTube-friendly 640-by-480-pixel video to built-in flash storage--take this simplified-uploading idea for videos a step further: Just plug the camera directly into any computer''s USB port, and its preloaded software lets you edit and upload video.
If a UFO lands in your backyard and you need the world to see the footage before the men in black swoop in, whip out your cell phone. If your model can capture video, it''s a simple matter to send clips straight to YouTube, no PC required (more on that in the Upload section). But don''t be surprised if your viewers cry "hoax"--few cell phones can capture video at resolutions higher than grainy, fake-looking 320 by 240. If you want 640 by 480, you''ll need a cutting-edge (and expensive) model like the Nokia N95.
Finally, to record the kind of close-up video confessionals or diaries made popular by LonelyGirl15, all you need is a Webcam. YouTube''s Quick Capture feature can record up to 10 minutes of live footage, meaning you can sit down at your PC, start talking, and hit the YouTube airwaves (er, Webwaves?) in a matter of minutes. Of course, you can also record yourself with the Webcam''s own software, edit the footage, and then upload it via conventional means.
Shoot to Kill
Whatever hardware you use to shoot your video masterpiece, keep in mind that you''ve got just 10 minutes to tell your story. That''s the maximum allowable running time for a YouTube video; anything longer and you''ll have to break it into multiple parts.
When you''re ready to roll your camera, try to avoid the most common amateur videography mistakes. Here are some tips that''ll help make your video look its very best:
Whenever possible, use a tripod. Shaky-cam video gets annoying fast, as anyone who sat through the motion-sickness-inducing Cloverfield can attest. If you''re shooting on the fly (or on the run), do your best to hold the camera rock-steady. Edit out overly jerky camera swings later.
Whenever possible, use a microphone. Don''t underestimate the importance of good audio; it''s just as critical as the video. If you''re stuck with your camera''s built-in microphone, so be it. But many camcorders support external microphones, which will produce vastly superior audio.
Avoid dark rooms. Unless you have high-grade video equipment, poor lighting will make your video look grainy. Always shoot in the brightest possible environment.
Use zoom sparingly. Zoom shots, especially with digital zoom, tend to look amateurish: As you increase the magnification, the camera merely enlarges the center portion of the image, resulting in fuzzier-looking video. If you need to get closer, move your feet.
Skip the special effects--for now. Most camcorders, and even some digital cameras, offer special-effects filters like sepia and "old movie." Better you should start with pristine color video, then add effects later using your editing software.
Remember to shoot b-roll. B-roll is supplemental footage that you splice into your primary footage to help move the story forward or provide context for the action. For instance, if you''re filming a soccer game, you might take shots of parents cheering on the sidelines, a staged ball flying into the goal, just the players'' feet, and so on. When the time comes to edit, you can insert these shots to make your video more interesting.
Create a Mashup
A classic mashup on YouTube is the famous ''Vote Different'' video that combines a Hillary Clinton speech with Apple''s iconic ''1984'' TV commercial.
Some of YouTube''s best videos aren''t exactly original creations. Many are mashups, meaning they''re a mixture of original and existing material. A classic example is "Vote Different", which combines a Hillary Clinton speech with Apple''s iconic "1984" TV commercial. The clip itself plays like the original, but with Clinton''s visage superimposed on various screens and her voice overlaid on the soundtrack.
In contrast to the slick "Vote Different," the entertaining "Ballmer Monkeyboy iPod Mashup" takes footage of Microsoft president Steve Ballmer wigging out on stage and superimposes it on a familiar iPod-commercial background.
Before you get started with your own mashup, keep in mind that YouTube strictly enforces copyright laws. So you can use copyrighted songs and video clips only if it qualifies as "fair use." Unfortunately, making that determination can be complicated. Check out YouTube''s guidelines on copyrighted content, then use good judgment. Obviously a 10-minute clip from The Office would be copyright infringement, but a clip of Michael saying, "That''s what she said," may be fair game.
Finding material for your mashup requires a little creative borrowing for clips. With a program like Replay AV, for in≠stance, you can capture just about any streaming audio or video. Head to sites like AOL Video and Veoh.com to find all manner of news clips, TV shows, and even movies. If you have a Media Center PC with a TV tuner, you can re≠cord shows and then extract clips using editing software.
Zamzar.com can download and convert YouTube videos in one step.
You can even borrow from other YouTube videos, provided they''re designated "public." You''ll need to download the videos and convert them to a format supported by your editing program. Free Web sites like Vixy.net and Zamzar.com can do both in one step: Paste in the URL of the YouTube video, select a format, then provide your e-mail address. You''ll get a message containing a link to download the converted video.
Several sites offer free sound effects and music to complete your production; try Partners in Rhyme and Soundsnap.com.
Edit Your Footage
If your video consists of nothing more than 30 seconds of your puppy squaring off against your Aibo, then by all means head straight for YouTube''s Upload section. For everything else, do your viewers a favor and edit the footage. Add some titles, cut out the extraneous shots, insert some transitions between scenes (nothing too fancy--a simple fade or wipe will do), and choose the all-important background music.
Windows Movie Maker offers basic video editing features, more than enough transitions and special effects, and support for laying down music tracks.
For all these feats of video magic, you''ll need editing software. Good news for Windows and Mac users alike: You''ve got everything you need for simple editing baked right into your OS. Windows XP and Vista users can fire up Windows Movie Maker, while the Mac crowd can use iMovie. Both programs offer basic video editing features, more than enough transitions and special effects, and support for laying down music tracks. Most important, they can output YouTube-compatible files.
If you''re creating a mashup, which is really all about clever editing, you''ll probably want more sophisticated tools. Commercial video editing programs offer options like picture-in-picture and chroma key, the latter used to mix multiple images (think weatherman standing in front of a moving weather map). Windows users can choose from editing suites like Adobe Premiere Elements 4 and Pinnacle Studio 11 Plus; Mac apps include Apple Final Cut Express 4 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS3.
If you''re in a hurry and need nothing more than a few quick-and-dirty edits, take YouTube''s own Remixer for a spin. Powered by Adobe''s Premiere Express software, Remixer lets you add titles, transitions, borders, and music. You can also combine multiple videos from your YouTube library into a single video, though you can''t actually edit the footage.
Once you''ve chosen your editor, it''s time to import your video into your editing program. Most editing apps will automatically split your raw footage into separate clips by detecting scene changes. With that done, you can cut your clips to the proper length and arrange them in the proper order. Each clip can be trimmed from its beginning and end, or split in two. By using your editor''s timeline view, you can drag and drop clips to get them in the desired order. Add transitions by dragging them in between clips.
Output and Upload
After you''ve finished editing your video, you''ll want to output it as a YouTube-friendly file. That means adhering to as many of the following specs as possible:
MPEG-4 video format
30 frames per second
No larger than 100MB
These are guidelines, not rules--YouTube will also accept videos in formats like AVI, MOV, and WMV, with varying bit rates and frame rates, and then convert them to its own proprietary format (FLV, in case you''re wondering). Just be sure to keep the file size under 100MB; anything larger requires you to install YouTube''s Windows-only Uploader utility, which can accommodate files up to 1GB. (The 10-minute length limit still applies.)
The YouTube Uploader utility also lets you select multiple files to upload at a time. Otherwise, you can use YouTube''s Web-based single-file uploader. Just click the yellow Upload button that appears on every YouTube page, then provide a title, description, category, and tags. You''ll also want to choose public or private status for your video; the latter limits you to 25 viewers, while public videos can be viewed by anyone. Finally, pick your sharing options, like whether external sites (such as blogs) can embed your video.
YouTube allows you to upload videos straight from your phone.
You''ll need to venture into your account settings first and configure a mobile profile. Once that''s done, you can send a video message (MMS) to ''YTUBE'', or attach your video to an e-mail and send it to the special address listed in your profile (which you should add to your phone''s address book for easy future use).
Now that you''ve added your video to YouTube''s massive library, it''s time to attract some eyeballs. Start by posting your video on your blog, Facebook page, or other personal site. For every uploaded video, YouTube provides an ''embed'' code that you can copy and paste into a new blog post or the like. The result is an embedded YouTube video player--the kind you''ve clicked countless times before, but this time it''s your very own video on the ''Tube.

Joining the YouTube CommunityЧAnd Creating Your Own Channel
Working with Channels
The most common way to participate in the YouTube community is by utilizing YouTube''s channels. On YouTube, a channel is just a fancy name for a user''s profile. Other users can access your channel/profile to find out what videos you''ve uploaded and which videos are your favorites; you can also subscribe to a user''s profile to be notified when that user uploads new videos to the YouTube site.
Viewing a Channel Profile
You access a user''s channel by clicking on that user''s name wherever it appears on the YouTube site. This takes you to the user''s channel/profile page, like the one shown in Figure 12.1. Although each profile page is unique, all pages contain the same major elements:
Links to the user''s favorite videos, playlists, groups, friends, and the like
Information about the user, including a link to subscribe to this channel
Videos uploaded by this user
Links to connect to the user, via email, comments, and so on
The user''s favorite videos
Channels the user is watching
Subscribers to the user''s channel
Comments on this user''s channel
In other words, you access a user''s channel page to learn more about that userЧand to connect with that person.
Subscribing to a Channel
If you like what you see on a user''s channel/profile page, you can subscribe to that person''s channel. When you subscribe to a channel, you are automatically notified (via email) when the user uploads new videos.
To subscribe to a user''s channel, go that person''s channel/profile page and click the Subscribe button. To unsubscribe to a channel, return to that user''s channel/profile page and click the Un-Subscribe button. To view videos from your currently subscribed-to channels, go to YouTube''s home page and click the Subscriptions link in the My box.
YouTube thrives on social networkingЧand your channel and videos will get more viewers if you fully participate in the YouTube community. That means subscribing to a lot of channels and leaving comments with those videos and users you identify with. What goes around comes around; the more comments you leave, the more people will see your name and channel, and the more views your videos will receive.
Personalizing Your YouTube Channel
Because a YouTube channel page is really a user profile page, you''ll want to create your own channel page and customize it to reflect your personality. It''s easy to do.
As to creating your channel page, there''s nothing to do; YouTube creates a profile page for you when you subscribe to the site. The default channel page is a little bland, howeverЧwhich is why you want to customize it.
You personalize your channel page from your My Account page. Just click the My Account link at the top of any YouTube page, and when the My Account page appears, scroll to the Channel Settings section
From here you can edit the following channel elements:
Channel InfoЧAs shown in Figure 12.3, you can enter a new title and description for your channel page. You can also opt to select a new video to use for your profile picture (by default, your last-uploaded video serves this function), as well as configure other channel display options.
Channel DesignЧAs shown in Figure 12.4, this is where you change the overall look and feel of your channel page. You can select a new color scheme for your page; opt to show or hide various page elements; and choose custom colors for selected page elements, as well as a background image for your page.
Personal InfoЧAs shown in Figure 12.5, this page lets you enter personal information to be displayed on your channel page, such as your name, gender, description of yourself, link to an outside website, occupation, interests, and so on.
Location InfoЧAs shown in Figure 12.6, this is where you enter your hometown, current city, Zip code, and country.
Channel URLЧAs shown in Figure 12.7, this page displays the URL for your channel page.
To hide your age on your channel/profile page, go to your My Account page, scroll to the Channel Settings section, click the Personal Info link, and then select the Do Not Display Your Age on Your Public Profile option. Click the Update Channel button when finished.
Managing Your Channel''s Video Blog
One cool feature that you can add to your channel page is a video blog, or Vlog. A Vlog is an easy way for you to create a personal video journal accessible to anyone visiting your channel.
To create a Vlog, go to the YouTube home page and click the Playlists link in the My box. When the Playlists page appears, you can choose to select an existing playlist as your Vlog, or create a new playlist to hold new Vlog entries. To use an existing playlist, select the playlist and then click the Set as Vlog button. To create a new Vlog playlist, click the Create Playlist button to create the new playlist, and make sure you check the Use This Playlist as Video Log in My Channel option.
Your Vlog now appears on your channel profile page. The individual videos in the Vlog playlist are stacked on top of each other; visitors can click a video to view it.

Drawing in Flash
Drawing in Flash
If you''re familiar with Photoshop or other drawing, image manipulation and paint programs, then Flash tools will look familiar. Let''s go over some of the drawing methods unique to Flash.
When one shape overlaps another and the two shapes are on the same layer and are not selected, these objects merge into one object. You can still select one section of the object, but when you move it, the part of the other object that was overlapped will be erased.
Draw a shape on the stage in one color. Draw an overlapping shape in another color. Select one of the color areas and drag the shape. You see that the part of the shape that was covered by the overlapping shape is gone. Keep this in mind when you''re creating graphics. If you don''t want this to happen, put the shapes on different layers, group them or make them symbols.
The Pencil tool works like a regular pencil tool with some cool options. The Pencil tool draws in three modes: Straighten, Smooth and Ink. These modes appear in the Options section of the Toolbox.
Choose Straighten and draw a box. The lines you draw have been straightened. Try this with the other two modes. Smooth makes nice curves averaged from the curve you drew. Ink leaves the line as you''ve drawn it.
Selecting edges and lines in Flash MX
To select a line segment or the fill of an object, use the Arrow tool and click once over the line or fill.
Double clicking on a line will select all the curves in that line.
Choose the selection (Arrow) tool and deselect any shapes or lines that are on the stage. With the selection arrow, move it over one of the shape edges. The pointer arrow changes when you''re over the edge of a shape that hasn''t been grouped or made into a symbol. If it''s over a curved line or curved edge of a fill, it is a pointer with a curve next to it and will move the curve if you press and drag. Over a corner or endpoint, it is a pointer with a corner, and will move the point or corner maintaining the straight lines. This will pull both stroke and fill alike.
To reshape lines and fills, select them. Use the Smooth or Straighten mode from the Modify Menu or from the Options section of the Toolbox. (You can adjust the amount of smoothing or straightening by choosing Preferences from the Edit menu.)
Control-drag (Windows) or option-drag (Macintosh) a line to create a new corner point.
The fewer curved sections in a shape, the lower the amount of data Flash has to maintain on that shape. Optimizing shapes is highly recommended to reduce file size and increase playback speed of the Flash movie. To reduce the amount of curves in an object, choose Optimize from the Modify menu. The Optimize Curves dialog box allows you to reduce the number of curves contained in a shape. Observe the shape as you smooth it and stop before it changes the shape unacceptably. If it''s a simple shape, the number of curves may not change at all. Optimizing all objects in a movie, can significantly reduce the movie file size and increase the playback speed.
Draw a shape. Select it and choose Optimize from the Modify menu. Use the slider to adjust the amount of smoothing to apply to the curve. (You can always choose Undo from the Edit menu.) The option ''Use multiple passes'' will repeat the smoothing process until no more optimizing is possible. This is the same thing as choosing Optimize from the Modify menu over and over again.
If you are familiar with Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, Macromedia Freehand or Fireworks, you''ve seen this tool before. The Pen tool allows you to place points and create curves and lines that are repositionable.
Exercise to create a straight line:
Select the Pen tool.
Click once anywhere in the stage window.
Click again, and a straight line is created between the two points.
Exercise to create a curved line:
Position the Pen icon where you want it to begin on the stage. Press and hold the mouse and slide in the direction you want the curve to go. You''ll see tangent handles that appear that you can also select and reposition. Release, and either repeat or just click where you want the curve to end.
Exercise to modify a curve:
Use the sub-selection tool to select a point or its selection handles and drag them to a new position.
Important points about curves:
To change a curve point to a corner point (or anchor point), use the Pen tool and just click on the point.
To change a corner or anchor point into a curve point, use the sub-selection tool, the option key and drag.
To delete a corner point, click on the point with the Pen tool.
To delete a curve point, double click on the point.
Fewer points means smaller file size.
A curve point is a hollow circle.
A corner point is hollow square.
The Brush tool is used to add color to your movie. The Brush tool has modifiers for Brush Size, Brush Shape and Modes. These modifiers are located in the Options section of the Toolbox. The Modes for the Brush tool provide different ways of painting. The Modes are:
Paint Normal - is just like you expect
Paint Fills - leaves strokes untouched
Paint Behind - paints in back of
Paint Selection - only paints selected item
Paint Inside - paints only the fill you start in
If you''re lucky enough to have a tablet and pressure-sensitive pen, then another option is available: the Pressure modifier. The Pressure modifier allows you to vary the thickness of the line you draw.
Layers are like clear sheets of acetate or glass. Layers can be stacked on top of each other. Each layer can have its own artwork, sound or action on it. Use as many layers as you need to keep everything separate and organized. Be consistent with the way you order and name layers, so that if you have to put the .fla away and work on it down the road, you won''t be totally lost. This is a good practice to adopt. Suggested layer order and layer names are:
1. Actions --- any frame actions assigned can all be here.
2. Labels --- Name keyframes that have actions
3. Sounds --- Any sounds can be placed in keyframes here.
4. Object 1 (whatever you have on this layer)
Name layers with short meaningful names that you will be able to identify at a glance. Such as "red ball bounce," or "button home." These aren''t read by Flash, so they just have to have meaning to you.
NOTE: You can have as many layers as you want (or as your system can handle). Layers do not add to file size.
Creating New Layers
There are several ways to create a new layer:
Click on the "+" button in the lower left corner of the Timeline.
From the Insert menu, choose Timeline + Layer.
Right-click (Windows) or Control+Click (Macintosh) on an existing layer and choose Insert Layer from the dropdown menu.
Creating Colors in Flash
Creating Colors in Flash
There are several ways to select color with Flash MX. The Swatches panel displays the 216 Web safe colors and also stores custom mixed colors created by the Mixer panel. To open the Swatches and Mixer panel, from the Windows menu and then Designer Panels and then Swatches (or Mixer.
When working with colors in Flash, you may want to organize the Swatches, Mixer and Fill panels into one window. These three panels are used together very often with colors, and you can save and recall this panel layout.
Adding a New Color to the Swatches Panel
Click on the Mixer panel tab. Select the color swatch next to the bucket symbol.
Making Buttons in Flash
One of the most powerful features of Flash MX is the interactivity you can build into your Web site. The button symbol is something you''ll use often. Buttons can be as simple or as complex as you want. Buttons can contain movies and actions inside.
Buttons are actually interactive movies consisting of four frames. The first three frames define three states of the button, while the fourth frame defines the hit area, or the area that is "hot." The four frames are:
1. Up -- what button looks like in inactive state, when the pointer is not over the button;
2. Over -- what the button looks like when the pointer is over it;
3. Down -- what the button looks like when the mouse is clicked on it; and
4. Hit -- the area that is "hot" that will trigger the button states.
Exercise to build a simple button:
From the Insert menu, choose New Symbol. In the Symbol Properties window that opens, choose Button as the Behavior type. Name it: b, simple button. Click OK
Using Symbols in Flash
One of the most efficient ways to use Flash MX is to use symbols whenever you need more than one occurrence of a graphic, or animation or sound. A symbol is a graphic, button, movie clip, or sound that you create once, then reuse in your movie or other movies. Flash allows you to have an item saved in the Library that you can pull out onto your stage over and over again without busting your file size budget. You can also modify certain parameters on each instance such as scale, rotation, alpha and overall color. If you modify the symbol, it will change all the instances, but if you modify the instance, then just that instance is affected.
Movie Clip - A symbol that can include animation(s), buttons, graphics, other symbols, and operates independently of the main stage Timeline.
Button - A symbol that allows interactivity and that responds to mouse clicks or rollovers. Buttons can also have movies placed in one of the states.
Graphic Ц A symbol that is used for static images or is controlled by main stage Timeline. Interactive controls and sounds won''t work in this symbol.
Sound - The Sound symbol is created automatically when you import a sound.
Font - Create this type of symbol from the Library window options so you don''t have to embed fonts in your site.
The Library stores symbols in alphabetical order. In order to keep symbol types grouped together, name each symbol using the first letter of the type of symbol that is it first, followed by a comma, then the name of the symbol. When you are working with many symbols, this helps you find the particular symbol quickly and consistently.
m, balloon movie
s, balloon squeaky sound
b, balloon button
ac, balloon movement action script in movie
Create a simple shape on the stage, such as a red balloon.
Let''s save this shape into the Library by making the balloon a graphic symbol.
Using the Arrow tool, draw a selection box around the whole balloon.
With it selected, from the Modify menu, choose Convert to Symbol.
A Symbol Properties dialog box appears with 3 Behavior options. Flash defaults to the Movie Clip behavior.
Select the Graphic behavior.
Name your symbol: g, balloon. Click OK.
Delete the balloon from the stage.
From the Window menu, choose Library. You''ll see your balloon symbol in the Library window.
Drag the balloon symbol (g, balloon) out of the library onto the stage.
Now you have an УinstanceФ of the balloon on the stage.
Let''s change the appearance of the balloon instance.
- Using the properties menu, change the alpha to 50%, change the tint, and change the scale and rotation.
You''ll see the original symbol is unaffected. You can keep pulling in the same symbol over and over again but change each instance any way you want. These attributes can also be changed for different keyframes.
Note: If you plan on animating each instance independently, put each instance on a separate layer. Animation requires "tweening", which will only work on one symbol on one layer at a time.
Making a movie symbol from the balloon graphic symbol
From the Insert menu, choose New Symbol.
Choose Movie Clip as the Behavior if it''s not already selected, and name your symbol: "m, balloon movie." Click OK. Movie symbols have their own timeline. This can get confusing.
You are now in the symbol editor, which looks just like the stage (because it has its'' own independent timeline). One way you can tell you are in symbol editing mode is by looking at the upper left hand corner, which will have the movie symbol you just named after the scene name.
In the Library window, drag the "g, balloon" symbol out onto the m, balloon movie stage.
Select frame 10 on your timeline and then from the Insert menu, choosing Timeline > Keyframe from the top menu. (Keyframe will duplicate the last keyframe with something in it.)
Move the animation scrubber to the second keyframe and select the balloon or click on that frame (this will pick everything in that keyframe).
Modify the balloon instance by rotation, scale, alpha and/or color.
Now we need to create a "tween" between the first keyframe and the second keyframe. To do this:
Click in the Timeline somewhere between the first and second keyframes.
In the property inspector, select the Motion option from the Tween dropdown menu. You can only use the motion tween on symbols. You can also add automatic rotation, easing, and other options at this point in the frame window.
There should be an arrow displayed in the Timeline area between the two keyframes. If you select something else, the motion tween should show up on a light blue field. (Shape tweens are green.)
Now if you scrub through the frames, you''ll see the balloon changing smoothly from frame to frame.
Let''s make this action loop continuously. To do that, let''s assign an action to the last keyframe, telling it to return to the first frame of its Timeline again.
Click on the last frame and choose window>developer>actions, the Frame Actions dialog box appears.
Click on the "Global Functions > Timeline Controls " book display action catagories, select and find GoToandPlay. It will default to frame 1, which is fine. Now, the movie will loop continuously.
Animation in Flash
Animation in Flash is easy! Let''s look at a couple of different ways to achieve animation in Flash.
We built tweens in the УButton and Symbols making" tutorial, but let''s do a quick review.
Draw a shape at frame 1.
(Try a simple shape, like a heart.)
Insert a blank keyframe at frame 30 in the Timeline. Draw another shape (like a star) in a different color at frame 30. The two shapes should be on the same layer. Click on the area between the two frames in the Timeline. The area will turn black.
Using Sound in Flash
There are several ways to use sound in Flash MX. You can loop sounds to play continuously, independent of the timeline, or synchronize your sounds to an animation. You can import and edit your sounds in the Sound Panel.
Import sounds into Flash by choosing Import to Library from the File menu. The following audio file formats can be imported into Flash:
If you have QuickTime 4 or higher, you can also import these file formats:
Sound Designer II (Macintosh)
Sound Only QuickTime Movies (Macintosh and Windows)
Sun AU (Macintosh and Windows)
System 7 Sounds (Macintosh)
WAV (Macintosh and Windows)
Flash stores audio files in the Library as a symbol along with the graphics, movies and buttons. Sound files are indicated by a loudspeaker icon. Because the sound is a symbol, you only need one copy of it and you can use it in many ways in your Flash movie. In the Library and on the Timeline, audio files are represented as sound waves.
Two types of sounds in Flash -- event sounds and stream sounds
Event sounds must download completely before they start playing and they will continue playing until explicitly stopped (usually by a stop action). Event sounds are associated with an event such as a mouse click, and are independent of the Timeline.
Stream sounds begin playing as soon as there''s enough data to play. These sounds are synchronized to the timeline. Flash forces the animation to keep in sync with the sound. If it can''t draw frames fast enough, Flash will drop frames to keep the sound in sync.
Editing with the Sound Panel
The Sound Panel allows you to modify the properties of the selected sound, for example:
specify if the sound is an Event or Stream
start a new sound, or Stop the sound
apply effects to the sounds, such as None (which strips any previous effects off the sound), Fade In or Out, Left to Right, etc.
If you choose Custom, you can modify the in and out points of the fade, the duration, etc. in the window that opens up. Click on the boxes at the corners of each channel and also add points along the line by clicking.
Saving and Publishing in Flash
Saving Flash movies
To save your working site with all its layers, animations, etc. from the File menu, choose Save. Flash will save it as a Flash movie with a .fla extension. This is similar to Photoshop where you save your working site with all its layers, channels and text as a .psd file. Archive this file. When you''re ready to show your creation to the world, you must publish or export your .fla file into a file format that will play back on the Web or be viewed as a still image or a series of images.
Publishing Flash movies on the World Wide Web
One of the most popular ways to make your multimedia project available to the world is by putting it on the World Wide Web. An easy way to accomplish this is by choosing Publish Settings from the File menu. The Publish command creates the Flash Player file (SWF) and the HTML document that inserts your Flash Player file into a Web browser.
To publish your Flash project, first click Publish then OK.
This dialog box gives you the opportunity to create different file formats -- GIF, JPEG, PNG, and QuickTime -- and the HTML needed to display them in the browser window. These alternative formats enable a browser to display your movie''s animation and interactivity for users who don''t have the Flash Player installed.
