Today I am working on Adobe Illustrator to create a sun for the background of the flash video. I have searched on Google for a tutorial on how to do a proper sun in AI. Here is the link.

Today I worked on fixing how everything looks. It turns out I can not group things together and turn them in a symbol so I had to make every part an independant symbol. I created a sun in the background. I also tried to look for more Flash tutorials but couldn't find much.

Just started Googling things on Google. "What is the difference between a Graphic Symbol and a Movie Clip?" I previously used only Graphic Symbols and after I found out the difference, it helped a lot. The motion tweet actually shows the lines to control where the object goes.

Replaying the first scene got me thinking, why is the water in the background showing through the boats. I forgot to paint them over, so with the complicated tools from Flash, I covered the boats up. Same thing for the sun, I painted white over it. I started on scene two today and made the background, sun, and boats the same. It continues on from the first scene.

Today I worked on scene two. It's practically the same scene because everything used is the same. However, it still takes time to have every layer set individually with motion tween.

Painting on Flash seems to be very inefficient, or at least the way I'm doing it is. So I have searched up painting methods for Flash.

Today I finished up scene three and figured out what my plot will probably be. Since I added a new boat, this boat is going to contain a pair of cannons which will probably blow the other boats.

Today I nearly finished scene 4. The timeline on this is shorter than the previous ones because I wanted this one to be a bit more quick. This is the scene where the man on the brings out a cannon and shoots at the other two that sped past him....

Second to final class, I would say I have put the most effort this time. I finally figured out how to use the paint bucket tool. Yes, this simple tool that easily works on Microsoft paint or whatever is totally different from Flash.
