How do I creat a swf file like this one?

Hi All,

I am a multimedia student and new to Adobe Flash. I got a request of making a flash video similar to the one on this link: http://www.windwardreports.com/

I don't know where to start. Should I make the video in After Effect first and then bring the flv into Flash? How do I add those links (Try It, Free Demo...etc.) at the end of the flash video?

Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Tracy

It looks to me like a standard keyframe animation in the timeline.

For your question I assume you don't know how to use Flash at all. If you're familiar with After Effects you may find some similarities. You can animate the whole thing in After Effects and export it as a swf, but this is not the optimal way. Better do it inside Flash.

I hope this helps

Thank you, Fernando. I am familiar with After Effects but not with Flash. That's why I was thinking making the animation in After Effect, but I guess it's better to learn Flash and do it in Flash. Are the links at the end wrote in ActionScript?

All interaction in Flash is made with Actionscript, but there are some simple behaviors for AS2 that are very easy to apply.

In Flash you have a timeline, layers and keyframes. That part will be very familiar for an After Effects user. Those are the main tools you need to animate objects in Flash (movie clips in your timeline will be like pre-comps in After Effects).

The rest of the tools and concepts will be very different.

So, there are good news and bad news as always. Good luck!
