Flash Hates Me!

Today I decided to try to create my own animation with semi trucks, road signs, and trees. Sadly I have had the worst time, not because it was giving me problems but because I couldn't get my pictures to do what I needed them to do. After a long 2 hours of messing with it, I decided that I needed to take a break before I threw my laptop out the window.

My long break was well needed, but getting back into creating my animation was a problem. I didn't know where to begin or what I even needed to do. I guess what I am saying is if anyone has any advice, I need all the help I can get.


  1. I started working on my project for Flash animation and the ideas I want to put out is very difficult as well. If you get help, let me know because I need it as well!

  2. Flash doesn't hate you! It takes some time to learn the steps to creating successful animations. Even when you think you have it, it will play tricks on your brain. Take a deep breath, relax, and retrace your steps, (cmd z) lol, eventually it will start making sense. Don't try to learn everything at one sitting because it will never happen! You will end up pulling all that pretty hair out of your head. One day, one step at a time, and you'll be looking back one day laughing at how frustrated you are at this point. You can do it!

  3. I agree, flash is hard especially when your first starting out. But you can do it, Shelby!!! I'm beginning to understand it a little more now, but have NO IDEA on what kind of flash animation i want to churn out. It'll come to me soon though.
