Floating Gallery Using Flash Cs4


Step 1: open a new flash file. Set the width to 600 pixels and the height to 540 pixels. For this pictorial we need 8 images. We have to resize them with 330*330 for the main image and 75*75 thumbnail images. Name the images image-0 to image-7 and thumb-0 to thumb-7 and then import them into the library (File-> import->import to library).

image-2172

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2: By using oval tool (O) to creating a dark grey circle (#323232) circle, without an outline by using dimensions and positions below. I have reduced the magnification in Flash to 50%, so that it’s easier to see.

image-2173

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3: To convert the oval into an MOVIE CLIP (Movie Clip Symbol) called “background”, by pressing F8.

image-2174

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4: Convert this Movie Clip into another one called “gallery” and then, from the properties panel, give it the instance name “gallery”. After that action script will be used to give the gallery some functionality and the instance names given to the MOVIE CLIP’s will be used to reference them.

image-2175

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5: Double click on the “gallery” movie clip and then on the “background” movie clip. Name the layer with the dark oval “background 1”. Create the second layer called “background” and with the lighter grey (#505050) oval on this layer.

image-2176

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 6: From the properties panel, set the dimensions and positions, as shown below.

image-2177

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 7: Next, drag image 0 onto the “images” layer as shown below. Convert the image to a Movie Clip (F8) called “image0”, selection “export for action script”. This will allow the image to be attached with action script, using the “identifier” as a reference.

image-2178

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 8: Convert the Movie Clip again (F8) into another Movie Clip called “image Holder”.

image-2179

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 9: Use the Oval Tool to create an oval on the mask layer, setting it to have the dimensions and positions as shown below. Right click on the mask layer and choose “mask”.
Fig (a):

image-2180

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fig (b):

image-2181

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 10: The circle should now be masking the image, as shown below.

image-2182

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 11: Now we are going to create a temporary guide which will be used to place the thumbnails. Create a new layer called “guide” and see the Oval Tool to create a circle with just the stroke color and no fill. Set the dimensions and positions as figure shown below.

image-2183

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 12: Convert the ring into a Movie Clip (F8) called “guide”.

image-2184

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 13: Double click on the MOVIE CLIP, create a new layer and draw a line, using the dimensions and positions as figure shown below.

image-2185

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 14: Create a vertical line on another new layer as figure shown below.

image-2186

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 15: Now copy the 2 lines onto a single new layer.

image-2187

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 16: Open the transform panel and set “rotate” to 45 degrees.

image-2188

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 17: Now, create a new MOVIE CLIP (Insert > New Symbol) called “thumb0” and create 2 layers called “image” and “mask”. Drag the thumbnail thumb_0 on to the “image” layer, placing it at the position shown below.

image-2189

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 18: Create a circle on the “mask layer”

image-2190

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 19: Right click on the “mask” layer and chose “mask”.

image-2191

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 20: Convert the mask into an MC (F8) called thumbMask. You can reuse this MC for the other thumbnails.

image-2192

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 21: Create a dark grey (#404040) circle on a layer below the image and mask, using the positions and dimensions shown below.

image-2193

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 22: This will also be reused for the other thumbnails, so convert it to an MC called “thumbBG”. So, that’s the 1st thumbnails created, now create the other 7, using steps 18 – 23.

image-2194

 

 

 

 

 

Step 23: Next, create a layer called “thumbs” and drag thumb0 MC onto the stage, positioning it at the top over the guide. From the properties panel, give it the instance name “thumb0”.

image-2195

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 24: Convert thumb0mc into another MC called thumb Holder. Set the registration point (circled in red) to the center. To rotate the thumbnails with action script, the thumb Holder MC will be rotate so that each thumbnail doesn’t have to be rotated individually. Setting the registration point to the center makes sure the MC will rotate from the center.

image-2196

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 25: Add all 8 of the thumbnails where the lines intersect with the ring. Place thumb1 at the second point, thumb2 at the 3rd, and so on.

image-2197

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 26: When all the thumbnails have been added, go back to the Gallery Movie Clip and give the thumb Holder MC the instance name “thumb Holder”.

image-2198

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 27: Then the image Holder MC and delete the image MC inside of it. This is because we will be adding the image dynamically with action script.

image-2199

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 28: Now we are going to create a gallery with rotating thumbnails. We will now use some action script. To make the thumbnails function and to rotate them around the main image.
Step 29: Code Explanation:
Line 1: A stop() function to stop it from looping
Line 2: A variable to hold the number of images in the gallery
Line 3: A boolean variable which is used to pause / unpause the gallery

image-2200

 

 

Step 30: Code Explanation:
Line 6 – 7: A for loop is created to assign each thumbnail a property containing the name of it’s corresponding image. The “i” in the loop will start off at 0 and increment by 1 (i++), while i is below 8 (i Line 8: Now that we are storing “thumb4” in “t”, we give it the property “image” and assign it to hold image4 (“image”+i)

image-2201

 

 

Step 31: Code Explanation:
Line 9: An onPress function is create for each thumbnail
Line 10: The last displayed image will be held in current, so we use this function to remove it before the new one is attached (line11), upon pressing the thumbnail
Line 11: We use the t.image property to attach the image to “imageHolder” MC. t.image is refered to as this.image because it’s being called from withing an onPress function.
Line 12: When a thumbnail is rolled over with the mouse, the gallery will be pause (see next step), but when the thumbnail is pressed, we want them to start rotating again, so we set “pauseGallery” to equal false.

image-2202

 

 

 

Step 32: Code Explanation:
Line 14 – 16: “pauseGallery” is set to equal true when the thumbnail is rolled over.
Line 17 – 20: “pauseGallery” is set to equal false when the thumbnail is rolled out.

image-2203

 

 

 

 

Step 33: Code Explanation:
Line 21: When the gallery start image0 is attached to be displayed.
Line 22: An onEnterFrame function is created which will execute any code inbetween the braces {} repeatedly, at the frame rate (30) of the movie.
Line 23: Another loop is used to rotate each thumb counter clockwise with 0.5 degrees. This needs to be done because when the thumbnail holder is spinning round (line 27) the thumbnails will stop being upright.
Line 25: Last we rotate the thumbHolder by 0.5 degreess. You can change the value of this and line 27 to increase or decrease the speed of the rotation.

image-2204

 

 

 

 

 

Step 34: the final code is

Watercolor Painting Sketch Pad Program

Here is a canvas texture to paint on

image-1909

Step 1 : Document Setup

Open Adobe Flash and Modify the Document Properties.
Modify > Document

image-1910

Step 2 : Import and Create Background Object

Import the supplied canvas.jpg onto the Stage.
File > Import > Import to Stage…

Convert the image on Stage to a MovieClip with a Linkage Identifier.
Modify > Convert to Symbol
Name: canvas_mc
Check: ‘Export for ActionScript’

image-1911

Giving the MovieClip a Linkage Identifier allows us to reference the MovieClip with Actionscript. You will see in next step.

Step 3 : Attaching a MovieClip with ActionScript

Leave the MovieClip instance currently on Stage.

 

Select Frame 1 on the Timeline and open the ActionScript Window.
Window > Actions

Enter the following code:

image-1912

Line 1: Attaches an instance of the Canvas to the stage at level 2.
Line 2: Makes the new canvas 50% transparent. This will make the ‘paint’ appear as if it were on canvas.

Step 4 : Create a MovieClip to contain the painting.

Enter the following code:

image-1913

Step 5 : Creating the Paint Brush Listener for the Mouse.

Enter the following code:

image-1914

Line 6: Create an Object to attach our brush functions.
Line 7: Define a onMouseDown method for the brush object. This method is activated whenever the mouse button is pressed down. aka. User wants to start painting.
Line 8: Define a Boolean variable to track when the user is painting.
Line 9: Move the brush to the mouse position.
Line 10: Draw a 1 pixel line to the right. We do this so that dots can be painted. Without this line the paint will not show up if a user simply clicks.
Line 11: End the method definition.

image-1915

Line 12: Define a onMouseMove method for the brush object. This method is activated whenever the mouse is moving.
Line 13: If the mouse button is down then isPainting will be true. Line 14: If true, then we draw a line to the current mouse position. If false, then do nothing.
Line 15-16: End the If statement and onMouseMove method.

image-1916

Line 17: Define a onMouseUp method for the brush object. This method is activated whenever the mouse button is released. aka. User wants to stop painting.
Line 18: Set the isPainting variable to false. Now the onMouseMove method stops drawing a line to the Mouse position. When the user presses down on the Mouse the isPainting variable toggles back to true.
Line 19: End the onMouseUp method.
Line 20: Attach theBrush Object to the Mouse as a Listener. Basically, this lets Flash know to listen to what the Mouse is doing and execute the methods we defined.

Step 6 : Define the Paint attributes and randomize for effect.

Enter the following code:

image-1917

Line 22: Attach an onEnterFrame function to our painting MovieClip. This will execute every frame or 30 times a second.
Line 23: Generate a random number between 2 & 12. This will be the width of our paint line for that frame in time.
Line 24: Set the style of our painting line.
1st parameter, ranWidth : is the width of the line.
2nd parameter, 0x0066CC : is the RBG color of the line.
3rd parameter, 100 : is the alpha (transparency) of the line.
Line 25: End the onEnterFrame function.

Step 7 : Adding the Clear painting button.

Create a button, name the instance ‘clear_btn’ and enter the following code in Frame 1 of the Main Timeline:

image-1918

Save and test out your simple painting program. From here you can begin to add features, such as more colors, different canvas options, brush sizes, etc.
