Flash Commercial

Flash Commercial (20 seconds)

I have to create a 20 second flash commercial for my school assignment which is part of a larger project of creating a website. So this flash commercial is for that website project. The website is about Learning WordPress where I share some tricks and tips of how to use wordpress and its features. So the commercial needs to be tailored to that. It does not need to be a professional commercial, just enough that it fulfills the requirements. The detailed instructions and requirements as as follows.

Project #4
Flash Commercial (10% of Final Grade)

I. Purpose
The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate your ability to use the various features and functions in Adobe Flash to create a commercial for your fictional company/organization. This assignment is an opportunity to utilize the Flash skills that you have learned to develop a creative and original 20-second non-looping Flash movie to deliver a message about your company/organization.

II. Steps

You must use Adobe Flash to create your commercial. Your Flash video must meet the following requirements:
· Document Setting:

ü Dimension: CAN NOT exceed 800 pixel width and 600 pixel height

ü Frames per second MUST be set to 12

· Export Setting:

ü Version MUST be set to Flash 8 or higher

· Accessibility Setting:

ü The Accessibility Panel (Window > Properties > Accessibility) must be activated

ü For the movie:

o Select the “Make Movie Accessible” option

o Provide an alternative equivalent in the “Name” and “Description” fields

ü For each object (e.g., button)

o Select the “Make Object Accessible” option

o Provide an alternative equivalent in the “Name” and “Description” fields

ü Ensure that no component of the content flashes more than three times in any 1-second period

· Requirements (The Flash movie should play in the following order):

ü Preloader:

; Select a background color; Create a text box, aligned at the horizontal center of the stage and type in ‘Loading’ in the text box; Create 5 small white squares and align them as shown.

; Create a preloader animation so that the squares sequentially turn to black squares for 0.5 second each, moving from left to right.

ü Motion Tween (all of the following):

; Resulting in a color change of any object

; Resulting in a position change of any object (movement)

; Resulting in a transformation change of any object (scale, rotation)

ü Shape Tween:

; Resulting in a shape change (morphing)

ü Flash Button:

; Insert a square and convert it into a button symbol

; Set the following states for the button:

o Up State: Create a text box on top of the square, with the text ‘End’ and align the square and text to look good.

o Over State: Change the color of the text ‘End’.

o Down State: Change the color of the text ‘End’.

ü Ending ActionScript (2.0 or 3.0):

; Create a new key frame after the frame on which the button is created. Delete the button from this frame. Import the Image.swf file to your library and drag an instance of it to this layer.

; Set the Actions to the button/frame so that the Flash movie stops when the button appears, and the Flash movie continues to play the imported Image.swf animation when the user clicks on the button.

; The imported Image.swf animation must run at least once completely without looping.

ü File Type:

; Flash Export Type: .swf

ü Time Length:

; At least 20 seconds (non-looping)

Submit both your FLA and SWF files via Blackboard using the Assignments Tool (“Course Tools” à “Assignments” àfollow the “Project 4: Flash Commercial” link).
