Chapter 4. Win, Lose, or Draw? Draw!: Create Better Effects and Animations

Chapter 4. Win, Lose, or Draw? Draw!: Create Better Effects and Animations

Whenever people ask me what Flash is used for, I say, “I have no idea—I just pay some guy to do all my work and copy things I read in other books.” They usually look at me for a second and then begin to cry. I can’t explain it, but maybe it’s because around that time I kick them in the shin. So finally I had to ask someone what Flash’s purpose is and here’s what they said... “Well, Shane, Flash is first and foremost an animation tool. When it was first used, the sole purpose was to allow for compact, fluid animations that were small in size and nice to look at. The interesting thing is that with the onset of the post-war ethical... blah, blah, blah.” That’s about the time I phased out of the conversation. What I did learn is that Flash is capable of creating very powerful animations, so I decided to dedicate this chapter to teaching all of you the secrets of making your animations faster, prettier, and better.
