Create a Halloween Flash animation without coding

In this tutorial we will use Creative FlashFX, the Flash components pack that incorporates Creative MovieFX and Creative TextFX (please click here to read more about Creative TextFX). Not only that the products have similarities regarding their interfaces and the workflow while using them, but they are fully compatible with each other.

We will animate some text using Creative TextFX and, following, we will animate a movie clip using Creative MovieFX. The result will be a nice animation in the Halloween spirit.

Firstly I just want to remind you that, in order to be able to solve the tutorial, you will need both the Creative MovieFX and Creative TextFX extensions installed on your computer; if you encounter any problems while doing that, please visit the “How to install an extension” tutorial.
