    Awesome review that was amazing. A question if you don’t mind (and if you are still an active user of YT and CS4)I just got CS4 and this was perfect as a tutorial I followed it by ear and learned perfectly how it works thank you for that.On to my question.Is there any way through this 3D way to increase the thickness of the rectangle? In moving and rotating it it’s still just a “flat” shape.

    Could you show us how to work with layering in AS3 while working with 3D like cubes for the sake of simplicity?

    Anyone know how I could create a 3D scene(in 3d software) and have it so you can use the mouse motions to move around using the middle of the scene as an axis. I have seen this before but no idea how it is done.

    A couple of points; show us the finished animation first – the outcome is important, show us a real-world example not just another coloured shape and maybe do a quick walkthrough to start with to satisfy those who know more and then go into detail. It does take 3.5 minutes of lecturing style tutorial before anything actually moves! And this is a 3D movement tutorial!

    I think madass564 was trying to ask how to add “depth” to the object and make it look like a solid instead of a flat piece of paper. I have the same question.

  81. kblo666 says:

    [..YouTube..] WOW, AMAzing…Gostaria de ver algum vídeo sobre animação 3D no Flash Cs4, não só rotação, como extrusão 3D.Esse tutorial foi útil, percebo algumas diferenças entre essa nova versão e a anterior.PLEASE, EXTRUSION 3D! =D

  82. lukassstyyy . says:

    With flash you make flash. With photoshop you edit images and other stuff. Easy

  83. splithaddock says:

    right, maybe you can help. ive searched EVERYWHERE for info on how to create a motion tween of a 3d rotation of something that rotates in only ONE axis. nobody seems to show on their videos how to do it. ie: imagine a windmill sail which has perspective and then rotates around itself. everytime i try to do it and create a tween it starts animating the sails in all kinds of axis not in the ONE axis i want it to. Can anyone help?

  84. unknown000person says:

    thx a lot dude u helped me xD

  85. FSUjonnyD says:

    Photoshop is a still image editing program. (even though the new CS4 version does have a small bit if motion editing) It is the industry standard for creating bitmapped graphics from scratch in high resolution for print, or low resolution for web. Fireworks CS4 is similar but geared more for web while Photoshop is meant more for print. Flash CS4 is simply used to create motion and animation. To take the still graphics you make in Photoshop, illustrator, fireworks, etc. and bring them “alive”.

  86. Incredible Tutorials says:

    1000′s of viewers think my tutorials are just fine. You assume way too much. Just because you know how to do the above steps doesn’t mean others do. If you think my tutorials are boring, don’t watch them. Problem solved.

  87. TheWaynelds says:

    can cs4 do texture mapping?

  88. redsnow123456 says:

    but please be faster than that it’s boring if i know it

  89. Johannes Jensen says:

    Yeah. If you have multiple movie clips and rotate them all so it becomes a box, and then make that box a movie clip.

  90. Johannes Jensen says:

    Yes, it can.

  91. Charolette52791 says:

    WOW! You explain this so simply! I can actually grasp this. lol! Thanks, Much appreciated! ^-^

    Does anyone know what this means in actionscript ? – 1126: function does not have a body- What should I do? I can’t “get it”

    awesoem man, thanks!

  95. DjStudiosAndTakeBaf says:

    we have cs4

  96. ortixx says:

    but what about the actual 3d-ness like depth? I want to have text with depth. Now it’s completely plain.
