Okay, I gots a few questions.

1. What's your opinion on Mitt Romney? :-P

2. How did you do that effect with Fawful when he was looking at Bowser's castle?(making his sprite a tad bit darker)

3. And the lighting effects were gorgeous, mind explaining how you managed such a feat of beauty in a flash animation?

If you could please answer these questions, that would be wonderful. :-P ...OKay, besides the first one.

1. I'm hoping he wins. It would be nice if they gave someone else a chance in the white house.


 

 

2. Thats a filter effect. Unfortionately, you can only add effects like that to symbols. In this case I converted the sprite to a movie-clip. Now click the property inspector and then filters. You should see a box that says <none>. Now click the plus sign and some options should come up. For the shadow effect, i used adjest color. With adjest color you can change how dark or light something is. The sliders that come up are kinda self-explainatory. 


 

 

3. Could you be more specific? :P

I see, always nice to see your political views...Even if I was joking. xP


Well, by lighting effects I meant the sun rays. They were quite impressive. Actually...another thought popped in to my head now...I gotta ask, how exactly did you do that dust effect with Bowser's castle after the explosion? I assume they were sprites, because I see that effect used a lot in flash animations...but I could be wrong of course.

ah yes sun rays... which ones :P theres quite a few used.

the dust I got that pack I'm not supposed to give out. But don't worry. It's actually really easy to make.

all it is is the 3rd sprite in the 1st explsion blurred in photoshop. To blur it, take the sprite and click flitlers on the top menu. Blur, Blur. Blur it a few times and you should have it.


I realize it's over used. But it's actually a really useful sprite :P

Ah, I was wondering how people did that...Thank you kindly. :P

For sun rays, I guess any of them would be nice to know how to make really. :-P But to make things easier on you...how about the first one?

That effect is called a "Lens Flare". Call it that from now on :P  It's got to be my favorite light effect out there. The sprite itself came from the weather effects sheet from TouHou: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody. To get rid of the black around it, you have to screen it in flash. To do this, make the lens flare effect its own movie-clip, then click the sprite. In the property inspector, 2 option pickers should come up. Color and Blend. You want blend. So click blend and look for screen. All of the black should now have dissapeared and the sprite should be slightly transparent. Place it where ever you feel like it. Moving with the effect is tricky to explain. I secretly have an obsession with light effects so the movement of it is natural to me. Basically, where ever there is a light source visable, a lens flare should acompany it. the mass mojarity of the time the flare will be seen as going dianglar down. To make it look real, it has to move depending on the camera. If the camera moves up, the flare will too. if the camera zooms in, the flare will begin to disappear due to the light source no longer being visable. Examples of it moving are in my scene 1 as you already know. So just study the way they move and you should get it eventually.

Okay my question is, do you really have to be a student to buy these (online)?

To my understanding, if you're a student you get a discount. If not, you have to pay full price.

Question, how exactly do you import a music file(Preferably MP3.) in to flash? I recently found an mp3 file of Mario and Luigi's house music from TTYD, but it won't import the file for some reason...Any insight you can give me on this problem?

Well you could just drag it in from your file browser. If it still says unable to import, then I'm not sure because i've had a similar problem.

If it's unable to import, go to online-convert.com, find the MP3 section, upload your file, and convert it! As long as you don't mess with the settings, the output file is Flash-friendly. ^FT^

I've recently ran into a problem with Flash, and it's becoming a pretty big issue for the animation I'm working on.

When I tried copy and pasting one of your dust effects in your Sprite Effects MC pack, it strangely enough just vanishes from visible sight. The layer I put it on will still act like something is there, by having the frames I pasted it on being grey. Also, when I checked the earlier frames I used it on, the dust effect wasn't missing, but it's colors were distorted, it became completley white and looked like it had its onion-skin on when it didn't.

I'm not sure what caused this problem, as I've done copy and pasted MCs in the past before and nothing like this has ever happened to me until now. Does anyone know a solution to this problem? It's really hindering my work on my animation right now...

Has anything happened to the bitmaps the MC was referencing?

I haven't touched the bitmaps of your Effects packs, so I'd say no, not that I could confirm it anymore anyways. Oddly enough, when I turned Flash back on a few hours later, the problem wasn't there anymore, fortunately.

Thanks for the help anyways, I appreciate it.
