Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating an explosion, part of Flash Professional: Animation Tips and Tricks.
Now we are going to do a different kind of effect. Previous effects that we've…been doing have been entirely dependent on shape tweening, and using the internal…processes of Flash for the most part. Now we are going to try something that's a…little more traditional.…Flash has its built-in brush tools that you can draw with, and this part of the course…will be particularly useful for people who have a drawing tablet: a Wacom…tablet, a Cintiq, or one of those devices.…You could, I guess, draw this on paper, clean it up with a marker pen or something,…and scan it into your computer. But it's also possible to tough it out and do it…with the mouse, so there's different methods that we can proceed with.…
What I want to do right now is show you the basic procedure for roughing in your…own effect stuff. You could also probably use a series of nested symbols instead…of drawing this thing curve by curve.…Anyhow, I am going to hide the lower sky. I don't need it, and I will show you…how this was initially assembled.…
