How to create an unconventional Flash scroller using Creative Flash Scroller

When we speak about Flash scrollers, we are used to see a square area with some scrollbars on their left and bottom sides. Creative Flash Scroller can change all that! With our product you can place the scrollbars anywhere and in this tutorial I will show you how.

Here is how the result should look like:

Get Adobe Flash player

I want to start by reminding you that, in order for the tutorial to work, you need two things. First is to have the Creative Flash Scroller component installed using Adobe Extension Manager (if you encounter any problems doing that, please refer to the „How to install an extension” tutorial)

This tutorial was made using:

How to make a Flash preloader using Actionscript 3

Hi,

This is my first post on the Extend Studio blog as I didn’t have the chance to write until now. I will try to do this more often from now on. I plan to make all my posts helpful and fun. I will post tutorials, links to interesting websites and best practices as well as a more inside look of the Extend Studio company.

We created many tutorials for our products until now and we will continue to increase our tutorial library with new additions each week. But we don’t want to stop and create tutorials for our extensions. We want to be as helpful as we can and we will begin to post various how-to-make tutorials about issues that we noticed that our customers need help with. Also, we are open for tutorial ideas and requests. You can either post them here or our forum and we will take your request into consideration.

While building this tutorial I got the idea that an easy to use pre-build preloader might be helpful if you don’t want or don’t have time to build one yourself. I’ve created a little preloader class that can be used to load your swf’s with. There are some movieclips already built that you can just drag and drop on the stage and then insert the path to your swf and the preloader class will handle the rest. If you want more details about this preloader, download its package from here. You will find a usage manual inside the package. Now, back to the tutorial.

In this tutorial I will teach you how to make a Flash preloader using Actionscript 3. The idea is that we will create a very small swf that we will use to load your main swf file using the Actionscript 3 Loader class. Because the preloader will be a very small swf, you don’t have to worry that it will take much time until the preloader itself is downloaded. (more…)

How to create a slideshow using Creative Flash Scroller

In this tutorial we will use the Creative Flash Scroller to create a slide-show. We will have a sequence of images encapsulated in a movie clip and we will scroll them by using two buttons. I want to start by reminding you that, in order for the tutorial to work, you need to do one thing. You have to have the Creative Flash Scroller component installed using Adobe Extension Manager (if you encounter any problems doing that, please refer to the „How to install an extension” tutorial).
