TUTORIAL: Flash Backrounds by Etoli TUTORIAL: Flash Backrounds by Etoli
**Requires Full View**

This was done at the request of an Ai buddy of mine, but I also did this for all the people who have been curious as to how I go about creating detailed backgrounds in flash. This treatment is light, but it's enough to get you started if you're already somewhat familiar with the Flash interface. I hope this helps you some, I had fun making my first tutorial to share with all of you!

Flash 8 + Photoshop

This tutoral is a real help for me, but I have a small question, if it's alright with you.

How does one create new layers in Flash? I have my program opened right now and it's baffling me completely.. If you could help meout it would be a real lifesaver.

I doubt I'll be able to make much use of this tutorial but you use this technique so well that I must make a note of it for future referance (so that if my skills do ever increase I might have better luck with it) :+fav:

btw fantastic backgrounds dude, simply stunning (and for flash that is damn impressive)

Sorry to bother you, but i have a question about something. Was this scene a zoom? I was just confused because I saw that there were nested symbols in the gradient, and I couldnt figure out why you would need to make them nested even if it was a zoom. If you could give me some insight into this, it would be awesome, because I'm still trying to get comfortable in the program and I want to understand all the possibilities. =)

Yes, the shot was a rapid truck-in (zoom), but for organizational purposes, I usually like to nest the symbols. It's just a personal way of working around the symbols and keeping track of them.

you make it all *look* so simple!

Just out of interest... how long does it take for you to make one background (ie from the time you open flash)?
Reply
:iconetoli:
Etoli Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2007
It varies depending on the background, but I might spend a few hours or even a whole day on a nicely detailed BG, especially if there are several layers for multiplaning.
