FLA's for Sale

So my tutorials haven't been coming out as soon as I hoped, and part of the reason is that it's hard to dedicate the time needed to make a good tutorial for you when there's not much in it for me.

So I'm going to try something here. The tutorials will always be free, but if you'd like, you can buy the FLA file so that you can really see what it is I'm doing (right now, the files are only available for CS3 and up, but if you're interested in older versions, let me know).

Each file is 3 bucks, through PayPal, and then I'll e-mail you a .zip of the file you purchased. The price seems pretty reasonable, and honestly the best way I've found to learn Flash is to look at the files of people who know what they're doing.

The tutorials with FLA's available so far are

The Walk Cycle Tutorial

The Water Cycle Tutorial

Using Symbols to Animate Traditionally

Perspective in Flash

The Dolly Shot Tutorials (different FLA's are included for part 1 and 2)

The Looping Pan and Multiplane Pan Tutorials (different FLA's are included for the pan and the multiplane pan)

Tutorials Coming Soon

After working with beginner animators in Malaysia for six months, I have a bunch of ideas for tutorials. There's stuff to cover regarding basic Flash workflow tricks, creating Flash friendly characters, setting up your scene in Flash to animate, approaches to animating a Flash character, effectively using embedded symbols and the list goes on and on.

I can cover these in any order so if you have a preference, post a comment. Also if there's something you'd like to be covered, let me know.
