Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Flash Student Could somebody please assist me with this? (Falling Snow/.jpg file)

    Hi, my name is Joe and for the last week or so I have been studying this flash stuff quite a bit. Ive been doing web pages for awhile, and graphcis, but flash is new to me and in order to be up-to-date with my web design business, I better learn flash!

    Here is the situation, I have a logo thats about 700x200, and it is currently a .JPG. I use it on the front of my web site. I would like to add a falling snow effect on my logo, so the snow falls in front of the .jpg.

    I followed TWO different online tutorials (including the kirupa one), and time after time (remember, Im new at this) I would end up with a single snowflake in the top left corner with no animation. I kept trying it over and over and paying more and more attention, until finally when I go to preview my falling snow and I get an error message saying "A script in the movie is causing Flash to run slowly. If it continues to run your computer may become unresponsive...."

    First, what the hell does that mean? I updated to Flash 9 and Im still getting the error message.

    But even when I do figure out how to the falling snow, I do I implement my .jpg with the snow to make it look like its falling on the logo?

    Any help would be extremely appreciated!

    It would probably be best to have your jpeg in the flash and have your snow falling over it in an above layer.

    Your getting an error on the script there which probably means you are running a loop that doesn't end. Check your script again, I'm sure you have an error there.
