    Default Fluctuating images in Flash

    Hi,

    I'm relatively new to Flash and want to create a file similar to the one shown with the images of the birds and scenery that merge into one another as shown in this site here:

    http://www.attenboroughnaturecentre.co.uk/

    I simply don't know how to do this in Flash, I have done it before in Javascript but never in Flash.

    Is it difficult and does anyone know how to do it?

    Many thanks,


    Jay Dog

    I'm not too familiar with Flash but I am with Photoshop, and given that both platforms are produced by Adobe, Id be willing to bet that they use similar terminology and menu labels - with simple motions/animations in Photoshop, you "Tween" between frames/key frames, so try to search for tutorials using those terms, for the version of Flash you're using.

    I'm just being curious: why would you want to do this with Flash when it's possible to do it with javascript (see this, for instance)?

    I agree Aria. Flash just seems a bit overkill for some simple image fades that can be handled so neatly and easily with JavaScript. Much better support on iPhone/iPad, no need for additional plugins, more search engine friendly - why indeed, in cases such as these, would you want to use Flash in place of javascript?

    Hi guys, first off thanks for your help, I did actually find a really good Tutorial on Youtube but I am new to Flash and am starting to use it more in work so wanted a challenge to help improve my skills.

    I just didn't know what to type into Google to be honest; 'making images merge into each other in Flash' seemed a bit vague but then realised it's a 'slideshow' so just Googled 'Flash slideshow, Youtube' and hey presto!

    I did actually make a pretty decent movie using the Tween option which looked quite cool but I think I will go with Javascript option as I've just spent some time this morning doing one based on the one mentioned above.

    Once again, thanks.
