This tutorial will help us teach us on how to create Horizontal 3D Carousel effect in flash using actionscript 3.
The procedure to get this done is by
- Creating an XML file with the image path and the link data in it.
- Then calling this xml data into flash.
- Placing the images in a 3D circle
Providing the circular movement for the same
- Functions for 'on click' and 'on
We will be covering a lot of topics whilst creating mp3 player, topics include,
- List Component
- Loading external XML data to list component
- Sound, Sound Channel and Sound Transform class
- Add Event Listener method
FLV Components, such as Play / Pause / Stop / Mute / Back button / Forward button
- Volume Control

- On-click behavior to lift photograph right on top and
- Drag and drop behavior

When we say we are enhancing text in flash by implementing ‘styles’ to it, We certainly mean we have a styles (.css) page and an HTML page, which is loaded into flash.

The color object
in flash allows us to set RGB color value to movie clip symbols. They also help us retrieve the value once set

In this tutorial, with the help of actionscript, we shall draw a star, fill color to it and provide outer glow to the same. We shall also include actionscript event to change glow color.

This tutorial will teach us on how to draw at runtime using actionscript code.
We will use 'drawing methods' of 'movieclip class' to draw shapes in the SWF file in response to events.

Similar to Photoshop and Fireworks, Flash 8 has this new "effects" feature, which includes, drop shadow, blur, glow, bevel, gradient glow and garient bevel effects. Here in this tutorial, we will be covering blur effect. One very important thing is, these effects can be applied only on text, movieclips and buttons.

To load external MP3 files at runtime, we need to use 'loadSound()' method of 'Sound' class. This method has 2 variable as shown below,
public loadSound(url:String, isStreaming:Boolean) : Void
The 'isStreaming' parameter indicates whether the sound is an event or a streaming

In this tutorial, we will learn how to adjust volume of an externally loaded MP3 file in flash. As we all know, to get this done, we are basically revolving around sound object. The method used to adjust sound volume is 'setVolume()' of sound object. Similarly we can even retrieve the already set volume by 'getVolume()' method, 'getVolume()' returns the sound volume level as an integer from 0 to 100, where 0 is off and 100 is full 'volume'. The default setting is 100.
Flash.filters package contains 'BlurFilter' class, which allows us to apply 'blur visual effect' to movie clips, text fields, and buttons at runtime.
We need to use 'filters' property to apply filters.

While working with movie clips on stage, we might want to fade the movie clip in or out instead of toggling its
_visible property. There are two procedures to animate a movie clip
- By using 'onEnterFrame' event handler
- By using 'set interval()' function

To preload MP3 file, we can use 'setinterval()' function to create polling mechanism that checks the bytes loaded for a Sound or NetStream object at predetermined intervals. We can use 'Sound.getBytesLoaded()' and 'Sound.getBytesTotal()' methods to track downloading progress of MP3 files.

To build a sound controller, we will need to do the following
- To attach external .mp3 file to swf
- To create preloader for sound file
- To create play / stop button
- Volume controller
- Balance (Pan) controller
To Achieve all the above, we will be using built-in sound class to control sounds in a SWF file.
