In this series of Flash tutorials, we'll talk about how we can use Flash to create motion graphics that we can integrate into After Effects. We'll start by bringing our footage into Flash. We'll talk about some of the different file formats that we can use with Flash and how to get around using an FLV file. Then, we'll use a variety of tools and techniques to create a hand painted look over our footage. Next, we'll take advantage of shape tweening to save time in creating frame-by-frame animation. Once we are finished in Flash, we'll import our files into After Effects so we can complete our illusion. By the end of this Flash training, you'll have an understanding of the painting tools and creating shape tweens. You'll also know how to interpret a SWF in After Effects and integrate it into your project. Software required: Flash CC, After Effects CC.
