Project 1: Creating an Analog Clock

Project 1: Creating an Analog Clock

Skills and Tools: Flash drawing tools and ActionScripting

Creating an analog clock is not all that difficult, it involves a bit of ActionScript, and an image that you want to use for the clock face. You can create the clock in an image-editing application, such as Adobe Photoshop and import it, or you can create it directly within Flash. The advantage to creating the clock face in Flash is that it would be resolution independent, and would look great on any monitor, regardless of resolution. This example will use a clock face created and imported from Adobe Photoshop. Once you get the hang of creating clocks in Flash, you you’ll want to incorporate them into just about any Flash document.

The Project

In this project, you’ll learn how to grab a system asset (in this case the system time), and use it to create a clock that automatically updates.
