Quick Flash Button

Flash Tutorials

**Please note that this was a quick draft. Your appearance results do not have to turn out like mine.

Step 1: Open your Micromedia Flash Program. It should look like mine. Then go to Flash Document.

Step 2: Take your base for your button. I will just use a rectangle.

Step 3: Take your Selection Tool.

-Right Click. And go to Convert to Symbol.

-Name it whatever you want, And set the behavior to Button. Then click Okay.

Step 4: Double Click your symbol, And on your timeline at the top, you'll see Up Over Down and Hit.

-Right click on those and Insert Keyframe for all of them.

Step 5: Go back to your Over state and Click on what you want to use to create your 'Hover'. I will use a simple Pencil.

- Draw whatever you want or make whatever you want your Hover to look like.

Step 6: Click on your Down state. Take whatever tool you want to use to make your Click look like. I will use a Paintbucket tool and fill it green.

Step 7: After you're done, Go to Control, Test movie to see what it looks like.

- My Hover

- My Click

When you're done with that, go to File, Export, Export Movie. Then you can upload it with whatever server you want and put it on your site.
