Flash: First Project

I’ve been spending most of my free time reading about and experimenting with Flash CS4.

For my first project, I decided to create an animated header for this blog.

I started by drafting a layout in Photoshop, but quickly realized that the direction I was heading was going to result in something way too obnoxious to actually use:

I started over, this time merely animating the existing header:

(It’s set to not to loop — to see it in action, right click and hit Play)

Alas, even after reducing it to something mind-blowing simple, it just didn’t look right. Not here anyway.

Lesson learned: There’s a time and a place for Flash apps… blog headers are not one of them.
