Macromedia has released the second of a series of articles from us Flash developers at gskinner. This article entitled âTrue Alpha Video in Flash 8â gives you the knowledge and skills to create your first alpha video, and how to use that video in Flash. I learned a lot about the new Flash 8 video in researching this article, and I really hope you take away some good knowledge about creating and using alpha video from reading this. You can read my article here. While researching this article we had tons of fun filming Guirellmo the hamster for the goofy demo below. Guirellmoâs whole purpose was to eat, and run across the screen (easier said then done). Just click to drop food in his feeding area and watch him do his thing.
This sample requires the Flash 8 player.
Needless to say, filming hamsters is harder than we expected, and requires better video equipment than we had easy access to.
