  1. Hi ANYONE!! I am ready to tear my hair out. I am a beginner and am making my first tutorial. I have made a graphic portion of the tutorial (2 minutes)roughly, in Flash including a short animation and sound, it is all laid out in the timeline just perfectly. I have separately shot a video (my first one) fps30 flash frames are evenly divised at 1/2 that. I followed a tutorial that helped me create a player with controls using the FLV Playback component which resides in a separate FLA file, when you play it , it is programmed to load my video and works great, problem is I want my original graphic/animation FLA file to be in the player in the beginning and have it fade into the video. The FLV playback component needs to be in the same folder as the FLV4 video because the way it works it that it retreives it, converts it to a swf and then loads it into the player. I have a time issue and need this done in a couple of days. I would gratefully pay someone to help me get it up and running but I would like whoever you are to teach me how to do it as I am trying to learn this stuff. So I guess I'm looking for a Flash tutor for this project. I have researched the net high and low and so far as I have gathered, I need to be using actionscript to call it in. I am using CS5 and actionscript 3.0. Help!
  2. Hi, I'm new to web design. I have a lot of ideas for websites and am just starting to learn html, html 5, java script, and css. I do not know PHP. I am interested in starting to compile a data base of people that are potential people to market services to in the many different categories I am interested in creating websites for. Is there an advantage to placing them into a desktop data base like Microsoft Access as opposed to Outlook? I want to design e-commerce sights and dynamic content sights with user interaction, so I will eventually want to learn PHP and My Sql. Do you have to buy MySql at a 2000.00 price tag to take the Killer Sites video tutorials? How do people use it when they pay for a website host like Go Daddy for instance? Do you just rent it from them? I have read many articles on the net and they all sound confusing to me because I don't understand how data bases work and I don't have my own server. I understand that MySql is probably the best for what I want to do later and would like to start learning it, but I don't own it. I don't want to do double work, if there is an advantage to using my SQL now while learning it so I don't do double work later, I would like to (but not if I have to spend 2000.00) Any help you can offer to clear my head would be appreciated.

  3. I have been toying with the idea of starting a socail networking site or classified add site but it is something I want to eventually (or maybe at launch) bundle with other services in a larger website. I don't have design or development experience yet. Are there drawbacks to using premade software like "social go" or "marketgrabber" in the long run? Is all the information still private? What kinds of technologies are involved? Any reason to definitely hire a programmer to design? Is it possible to build pieces of a site like that and then just keep adding stuff on, or is it better if the whole project is laid out and every part of it planned ahead of time? I'm new at this, is a forum the wrong place to ask these kinds of questions? Can someone point me in the right directions, I have already googled it to death.
  4. Isn't the internet being integrated with everyones television equipped with Google? It seems like that should perpetuate use of the internet.
  5. I am new at this. I think it is good to get a degree and also learn from everywhere that you can. This is my first time in a forum. I am confused about fast reply and regular replies and why my post comes out with the persons question in the top of it and other peoples don't. Am I doing something wrong?
  6. I hope I am doing this right. I have not posted to a forum before. I too just started at Devry. I started a class in Adobe Flash today. I have taken a couple of design classes already there and so far I have had really great passionate teachers. The classes I am taking are online and I was surprised at the quality of them. They seem much better than the online classes I have taken at Jr college. Good luck.
