Would someone please help me by pointing the way to any step-by-step tutorials for creating slideshows in Flash CS4? It's gonna be adapted for students, so it'll have to be kinda rudimentary and expansive in its presentation. I haven't done a slideshow in Flash since Studio 8 with Actionscript 2. I"m just looking to do the old next/previous (forward/backward) and refresh buttons with simple alpha transitions between. Something like that.
I'm pretty sure that there's actually some sort of slideshow maker in Flash now, but Adobe's new help system (brings you directly to their confusing site) is definitely not helpful. I've Googled as well, but there appears to be a dearth of info. on CS4 slideshows.
Help me, QBN-Kenobi!
Hmmm. By CS4 I am guessing you mean AS3? You can still use AS2 in Flash CS4, so it's more a question of how to do it in the new Actionscript rather than the new version of Flash.
'Thanks, Armando, but I'm actually looking for something to teach Flash students to do it with the program.'
and this is why most web development courses are so invaluable.
dog_opus, if you google AS3 there is actually a lot of stuff on it.
Basically you will need to learn how to do two things -
1) read an XML file into an array which will store the image data
2) add an event handler to the Previous and Next buttons to create the transition
sorry i thought you were looking for a out the box solution.
Oooohhh... This stuff looks good, creez. Thanks a lot!
