Also, here is a MIDI composition titled Endeavor.mid I finished:
This page holds work that i have created using Flash 5 / 6 editors. They will be listed in order of earliest (top) to latest (bottom). There are other movies that i have made or worked on, but i don't consider them presentable. Enjoy!
IMPORTANT NOTE! In most movies i have some sort of "skip" button. however, if the movie is not fully loaded yet, "skip" will only go to the closest loaded frame to where "skip" is suppsoed to end up. Feel free to keep pressing skip since it should load slightly faster than the movie moves, or just give it a few seconds and then press skip.
First_Movie This was a school project where i worked in pairs, and so i gave credit to my team, the WAT, or Web Animation Team. however this was a personal project and i was in charge of the flash part anyways. This was actually an attempt at making a game, so you will be using your mouse to "shoot" enemies. when i worked on this for a few days and came to the part where i needed to use script commands, i didn't know how so there was no actual game. it has no music and lacks a lot of quality and time that i stuck in the later movies. note that it runs like a movie. no matter what you do, you'll "win" but its more fun to pretend to shoot the enemies that never die :-) Anyways, ugly and boring. I suggest you move on.
shipmovie1 My first real, finished, presentable movie. Also the first to be drawn to music. I spent much more time than all the movies preceding it. It has music so put on your earphones or turn on the speakers. I fixed a problem where I couldn't get the music to sound right. The quality was bad and I didn't know why...until now. the file is larger so there may be more lag and/or loading time, but that is how the movie was supposed to sound.
shipmovie2intro This is the 70 second introduction to my 110 second movie to-be-released. I've learned a lot since the first one and have tried out new effects and artwork. Try to pay attention to the text more than the graphics; you should be able to see enough of the action. Also, you can press P and U on your keyboard as well as clicking the buttons on screen to pause and unpause. It takes a short while to load completely so the skip buttons "20" and "40" may not skip to those markers but to the closest loaded point to it. Be sure to turn up your sound! Enjoy! By the way, despite what the end of the movie said, my movie probably won't be released any time soon.
Shipmovie2: This will be very much like shipmovie1, but with better graphics and effects. The story is also different. It will act like a completely new movie. I will post the log of what i've done and the time i've spent.
