i have finally finished my first flash animation. it was a project for the university called "computer animation", the goal was to accomplish interactivity within the animation - so i thought the "flatlanders" comic-pages i created a year or so ago would be perfectly suited for this task. i tried to get some sort of oldschool point&click adventure flavor to it, to trigger stuff like emotions of the main character, new scenes or animations. it was hard to get into AS3 coding and the whole flash interface at first and when i finally got the hang of it i realized how quickly the deadline was closing in... however so much more ideas and stuff to add rushed through my head, but unfortunately i had to make a clean cut in the end. there was enough time to finish some sort of ingame menu and almost the first 2 pages.
anyway, above are some photos from the finished case, a wip mashup and the cover. you can watch the finished animation here.
ps: i try to make the close and fullscreen button work for browser windows, right now it only works if you start the swf file via flash player not in any browser, dunno why. (me = flashnoob)
