Hello, like my topic reads, im wondering if it is "possible" to let the user upload a photo of their face and let it then become the mainpart of a flashmovie. If so, is it really complicated?
What terms would be used in a scenario of creating a flashmovie like this? (Wanna know what to google for)
I feel lazy for starting this thread, but im kind of new to flash and I cant even begin to imagine how I would create such a flash film.
Anyhow, im just asking for a little point to the right direction, if this is even possible to make for a beginner.
Thanks in advance.
This is likely too involved for a beginner to take on without getting some of the more basic elements of developing with Flash under control first. But if you want to try there's no one to stop you.
To do what you want to do you first need to provide the means for uploading the image to a server and so that it can be loaded by the Flash file. To upload you would use the FileReference class. To load the image after it has been uploaded you could use the Loader class.
So if you want to search for some tutorials, use Google and search terms such as "AS3 upload file" and "AS3 Loader tutorial". YOu will also need to make use of listeners to detect the status of uploading/downloading since you cannot take action on a file until after it has been processed. So try to find tutorialsd with that kind of help as well.
Okay, thank you for the fast reply! I will try it out !
