Hello, my name is XDude and I'm reliving my glory days of when I used to make long, elaborate website intros in Macromedia Flash.
But I did make this today: http://12voltwizard.com/intro/
(Ultra rough first draft, takes a while to load, don't blink or you might miss the animation.)
Aside from the long loading time, does it work on all your fabulous devices, tablets, etc.?
For the devs:
The program has certainly come a long way since version 1! Thanks so much for including all the lessons right inside the program, it made the learning process super-easy.
Overall, making the animation was mostly painless. I did find myself a bit bewildered by the lack of a "modify the background color of the document body" (not just the stage) or "add a body background image" feature. (Unless that's what a down-level stage is?)
My hax0ring skilz were also a little too weak to get the preloader image to appear in the center of the page...
If there could be a way to move the playhead with the keyboard (like hitting the Page Down key in After Effects or Premiere) that'd be awesome.
Other than that ... well, I'm super-excited to see that Flash 3 lives again!!
I just had a look at it in Chrome... performance was crap!
Can anyone else also look in Chrome and let me know?
P.S. the graphics are a bit low-res for desktop (it's mostly designed for mobile users).
Just checked in Chrome Canary 64bit - it moves pretty fast so its hard to get a good view of it to critique.
Thanks for the feedback!
I slowed it down a fair bit and added a longer pause to the beginning (I'm finding browsers sometimes skip the first half-second of animation).
