Hi,

Can someone please tell me if the top part of this template is completely done in flash or just the pic and the button were made in flash? Any tutorial links to achieve this effect will be appreciated. Thanks!

    I don't see any Flash in use. There's no need for Flash to make the top area that simply rotates the image of the guy, or the button. That's just simple JavaScript.

    For easy things like that, especially if you're unfamiliar with JavaScript, you can try some very easy frameworks like jQuery.

     

    jQuery Tutorials here (download links at top):

    http://docs.jquery.com/Tutorials

     

    I didn't look (but you can) and they're most likely sending out an AJAX request to download a new image, layering 2 images over each other in the same place and fading the new image in on top of the old image.

     

    jQuery has a simple AJAX syntax:

    http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajax/

     

    And to fade something in, a simple effect:

    http://api.jquery.com/fadeIn/

     

    Look at the sample code provided on those links. You can basically copy and paste that effect easily and jQuery is very consistent between all browsers, OSs and versions.

     

    You're welcome.

    It's far more ideal to do simple things like that with JavaScript than Flash. It will work on devices (tablets/phones/etc) without trouble.

     

    If you have any questions on JavaScript head on over to the Dreamweaver HTML5 forum. Good luck!

    I just hesitate to talk about non-Flash topics in the Flash forum but if you read the simple jQuery example code and give it a try yourself I think you'll be delightfully suprised how easy it is. You can also message me any jQuery questions or as mentioned above just open a new post in the HTML5 forum.
