This time I added Sound Effects, and worked out fade in and out. There's a tool in flash that allows me to edit the volume and right/left ness of the music... but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, which leads me to believe I don't TOTALLY get it just yet. But I'm getting there.
We're finally getting to the point where I'm seeing the extent I can take SoE with flash. Considering how consistently people have asked me to go back to hand-drawn pieces, I'm considering whether or not this is the best route for this project. Animation certainly has its limitations, as well as its bonuses. Whatever time advantage I may have initially thought I would have... I don't think it panned out. ^_^; These things take a ridiculous amount of time to make.
Anyhow, enjoy at your own risk! We have one more brief animation after this and then we're closing out chapter one. After that, I'll be taking a break with this project until February to get married, and also to give some serious consideration to the direction I want to take this project. It's been a lot of fun using it to learn flash, but we'll see where we go from here.
