    I am going to go ahead and say you say “I am going to go ahead and….” about a BAZILLION times, otherwise, I think it was a great tutorial. Thanks.

  5. barbside says:

    It is a awesome tutorial, but you take too much time to choose colors and fonts, and also to correct things which are basic. So idea for future tutorials, make them shorter. Overall nice tutorial, thank you.

    +Incredible Tutorials Hi there,Just want to say that i am your great fan, but i want to ask, can you view a navigation banner and change it from a flash template. I have this template but the naviagtion banner has buttons that i don’t want and i want to change it but i can’t make the buttons visible to me?

    Flash CS5 Has The Same Thing

  8. Sohail Ahmed says:

    Excellent Jobs Thank you very much?

  9. Peter V Cook says:

    Tip if you need to make a banner ad that will run on other websites: 600×100 isn’t an IAB standard ad unit size. But most all the industry standard sizes are built into Flash under Create From Template: Advertising from the Welcome Screen

  10. James Musaali says:

    this is so cool thanks and for the haters don’t mind them we animators know it takes time to make a great project!!

  11. Ivan Servanov says:

  17. Sandeep Kapse says:

    While adding geturl action, you only had to enter the url in the form. I dont see such form in adobe flash CS^, instead i have to write the whole command. How can i enable the view you got?

  26. Alina M says:

    I was doubtful at first when I saw this is an hour long video.but after I’ve watched it all patiently I was very glad it is that long. the explanation is very good and clear. and I am even more glad you had the patience to make a video so good.

  27. Kelly Hannifin says:

    Great video for beginners!

  28. Ryan Bayan says:

    good video but to much talking… in other tutorial videos for flash banner, it only takes 10 mins… your video is inconvenient… in other words it wasting our time…

  29. HathemADKOV says:

    exactly ;)

  30. mike butcher says:

    to gav mate HD, you cant spell whole so you cant comment on anything

  31. Dalibor Milentijevic says:

    He said “Just like that”

  32. MRTiGzoruA says:

    that’s what she said 4:23

  33. tyranttana says:

    Wow, you kids these days have the shortest attention span! LilredheadComics obviously put a lot of time into making this tutorial as simple as possible for anyone to understand. Heck, he explained this better than my Web Page Design teacher! If you can’t see this type of animation and this line of work takes time and patience, then this isn’t for you. Grow up and stop whining like babies about how long it is. One hour isn’t going to kill you…..

  57. bogatinovskaa says:

    You could have showed us this in less than 5 minutes. Are you making tuts about Flash or graphic design at general?

  58. carwillide says:

    Thanks for the tutorial. It was very easy to follow along. As for the commercials, your time and expertise is greatly appreciated; either we pay for it or we watch the commercials….Again, this was an excellent tutorial and I am glad that I stumbled across it and will watch your other tutorials as well as participate in some of your interactive classes at eProf.com

  59. Moemors says:

  60. ThaDanishGuy says:

    Hey mate, just felt like saying kudos for the guide– noticed a lot of people hating on it as of late but I don’t feel that they’re justified to say that kind of sh*t as you’ve put more than an hour of your life into filming this just to help out others.Once again, thanks.

One question (sorry have not seen your other tutorials yet and am very pressed for time on a website project); how can I stop one or more timeline from animating any further but to freeze and continue showing while other timelines continue looping…such as the header in this website: sundownproDOTcomI will very much appreciate a solution!

  118. flosthebos says:

    [..YouTube..] When I try to create a tween for the blur, so it will blur into focus, the tween just wont work. I go to frame 130, keyframe, add blur filter, create clasic tween. But when i go to frame 131 it instantly pops into focus instead of going along the tween time span to blur in gradually. Anyone have any ideas?! This boggles my mind!

  125. [..YouTube..] Yes you could but the whole point of the tutorial is to learn ADOBE FLASH, not how to use a template on some website.

  126. [..YouTube..] @makaramba Yes you could but the whole point of the tutorial is to learn ADOBE FLASH, not how to use a template on some website.

  136. GavMateHD says:

    I think it people would benefit if you actually showed the finished animation at the beginning of the tutorial so they can have an idea of what you are going to create. Its frustrating to have to watch the hole tutorial just to see the finished animation. Thumbs up if you agree people.
