I think the CS5 is not support, or something missing, because i have a same problem here, just feel shit

I am using CS4, and after watching this 3 times to get all the steps down, the whole thing worked perfectly. I am definitely recommending this to my fellow students.

Great tutorial, clearer then a lot of others, but when I run it, I still get the “…” instead of the preloader. That displays for a while, then the movie just jumps over my preloader. What am I missing? BTW, I’m using Flash CS5 with Actionscript 3.0 (obviously),

Hey, just wanted to say great tutorial and also ask what could be the problem my animation seems to start when the loader gets to 50%?
Thanks

Hello!
Here’s the code: down

Same here for me, like you, just do not see what you are doing in the end. What is wrong?
Thank you

stop();

addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, preLoad)

function preLoad(e:Event):void{
var bytesLoad:Number = loaderInfo.bytesTotal;
var numberLoaded:Number = loaderInfo.bytesLoaded;
if (bytesLoaded == numberLoaded){
removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, preLoad)
gotoAndStop(2);
}else (
preLoader.preLoaderFill.scaleX = numberLoaded/bytesLoad;
preLoader.bytesPercent.text = Math.floor (numberLoaded/bytestoLoad*100) + “%”;
}
}

hmm,
i’m having trouble with having the bytesPercent text to show up, and the preLoaderFill thingy to start moving from one end to the other.
they’re just not going anywhere 😦

Re: @RiverCityGraphix Thanks for the tip! I copied action script i found in your site, and now, it’s working perfectly!

@Lenguagestar It means that you typed some of the code incorrectly. You will need to double check the code. If you want, you can copy and paste it off my website to be sure you have it correctly.

Remember when you go to your youtube page and there wasn’t an advertisement at the top of the page?

Remember when music videos were uploaded by users and not VEVO

Remember when there wasn’t advertisements that never go away?

Remember you couldn’t have a limit to favorites?

Remember the famous yellow subscribe button?

WE MISS THE OLD YOUTUBE!

Post this in every video and lets start a youtube riot!

@s0010092 It doesnt take any less skill to do this on a computer, it doesnt draw the eye for you. It is but a different tool

@s0010092 Why? Cos the result give you an im- or expression, it has a meaning, nevertheless it has a “greater” meaning with emotions or something u have to interprete or “just looking good”. That is all art, there is no “real art”. Art is the way you’re expressing yourself even if u just want to draw something nice. And everybody can decide for himself in which way he does and what kind (see above the second sentence) of expression he uses.

18 04 2011
MinosDaedalus

@s0010092 I did NOT question that drawing this by hand cannot be done and I do not concede what is “real art”. Architecture is art, plastic is art, drawing by hand with pencil, oil, cole, crede or knife cuts is art and there are much more ways to “do art”. and drawing with electronic tools is art, too.

@s0010092 As you can probably gather from other people on the channel. The artist has obviously displayed a major talent regarding her drawing skill. the video itself has just shown that!
Unfortunately there is a bit of stigma regarding digital artists. People who have never used a tablet or photoshop will automatically assume that the technology does the whole job itself. believe me that is certainly not the case. If not it is more difficult! Alot more difficult! As for the Artist! Kudos!

@s0010092 I can do this same thing too by pencil, by charcoal, you name it. and I am younger than you. AND by computer. and believe me, it takes WAAAAAAYYYYYY more talent and skill to pick up a foreign , unnatural object that isn’t physical and draw with it. How about you try and fail at drawing on the computer then deside weather to do a “harmless critique” on this person’s drawing

18 04 2011
Jayfeather5651

@s0010092 what do you know? Have you ever drawn on the computer?I have. You NEED to know how to draw to have the skill to draw on a computer. In life drawing its out in front of you, you can physically change it. If you can draw on the computer you can most defiantly draw (and very easily in fact) with charcoal and variates of pencils. To draw a drawing like this on the computer you must know the program from head to toe. I cannot express the ignorance your comment shows.

Very nice job! And cute song 😛

@s0010092 “critique” ?
what you did was not critique. here a comment from someone else on this vid. “Too much use of soft brushes. Makes it seem a little kitschy. Next time use a few hard brushes to indtroduce some dynamics and make it look more interesting.” now this may not be very comprehensive but just try to compare it to your comment and you’ll see why i reacted the way I did. plus with all the classes you said you’re taking you should know that this require skills and knowledge..
