In Flash Professional CS5 Essential Training, author Todd Perkins explains the fundamentals of Flash Professional CS5, the industry standard for creating animations and interactive applications for the web, desktop, and mobile devices. This course starts with the basics, such as using the drawing tools to create simple animations, and progresses to automating animation with tweens and adding interactivity with ActionScript. This course also covers how to add sound and video to projects, enhance realism with effects like easing, and publish a project to a variety of platforms. Exercise files are included.
To integrate with Flash Catalyst, you can export an FXG file just like you would integrate with Illustrator. So let's kick out an FXG file of our application, so we can add interactivity in Flash Catalyst. I'll go to File > Export > Export Image. That will export a whole screen. So, I'll export this whole file as Flash_Catalyst.fxg. Save the file and I'll head on over to Flash Catalyst. In Flash Catalyst, I can choose to create a new project from an FXG file.
So I'll find that file, Flash_ Catalyst.fxg, and I'll click Open. Flash Catalyst then imports my file and I can select that button on the Stage and then go to the Interactions panel and click Add Interaction. From there I can choose On Click, Go To URL. I'll type in the Explore California web site. And then I'll click OK. Then I'll test this in a web browser by going to File > Run Project. So I can click the Explore California button and I go to the Explore California web site.
So to integrate with Flash Catalyst, kick out an FXG file from Flash and import that file into Flash Catalyst.
