Project 8: Creating a Site with Effects

This project's website is slightly ambitious for the number of techniques that are used, but they are not difficult. You also get a bit of a break on the ActionScript for this chapter: not much code is used, and what you do add is very simple. Regardless, you probably feel comfortable with the basics after the last couple of chapters!

You'll begin by setting up a website interface that includes animation when the SWF file first loads and when the navigation buttons first appear. You'll add several movie clip buttons that contain animation to the Stage. Then you'll add a transition that appears when your visitors navigate through the website, which includes an animated mask. Finally, you'll add scrollable text and videos as content for the site. You use ActionScript to control the buttons and transitions. You also use ActionScript to load FLV video and formatted text at runtime.
