For the past few weeks, I've been teaching myself the basics of Flash. I'm a very visual learner. It really helped me to quickly learn from videos instead of reading one long tutorial after another. Right now, I came up with a few and hopefully simple ideas that will help me learn and practice using flash. First, I want to create an interactive cooking lesson for rainbow cupcakes. It'll be cute, animation with motion and shape tweens, hopefully have a next and back button. I want it to be fun and simple enough for a little baker girl or boy to follow. My other animations, I want to do are
- An old French lady sipping tea
- WG/eating Animation
- Another lesson animation: Learning colors in Different Languages
- A bored bartender, shaking up a drink
After watching some videos on the basics of flash, I've made a banner for my animated cooking lesson. Here it is!

Banner Words made in Flash
And here it is animated.
I really like the way the banner came out. It's cute, simple, and colorful. Next on my list is to storyboard how I want the lesson to look with which steps I want animated. I think the hardest part will be attempting to make a next and back button with the ActionScript3.0 interface. Gaaah, well wish me luck or say prayer. I am off to learn more flash!
