Chapter 2. Basic Tasks: Creating a banner, Part 1

Macromedia Flash Basic 8 or Macromedia Flash Professional 8 can seem like a very complex programs to learn. One reason for this seeming complexity is that you can use it for so many different things, such as cartoon animations, media players, and sophisticated software. This tutorial is suitable for you if you’re opening Flash 8 for the first time. This tutorial shows you some of the fundamental aspects of the program, and how to get started using them to build a real project. You don’t need to know anything about Flash or animation to complete this tutorial; in fact, you’ll discover how easy it is to start using Flash 8 to add elements to your web pages.

This is Part 1 of a three-part tutorial on how to build a simple animated banner in Flash and add it to a web page using Macromedia Dreamweaver. You’ll learn how to create a file and modify its settings, import and add graphics to the Stage from the library, and create layers in Part 1. In Part 2 and Part 3, you’ll add an animation and create a button that opens a browser window. Then you’ll specify publish settings, and add the banner to a web page.
