My Experiences with Flash movies, Flash MX and ABS...

Chapter 1 - Flash movies
I don't believe someone who've been using computers and internet for somedays saying that he/she has never seen a flash movie..or technically a swf. Flash movies are such cute and simple files . whatever it contains , like game, animation, music video... it's always enjoyable. At earlier times I've never thought I could make a similar one.

Chapter 2 - Flash MX
It was one pretty day in my +2 college days I got the Flash MX software from my pal Sarath. He gave it to me thinking i could make pretty animations out of it. But as i tried using the software...Oh! waqs such a complicated mess over there!! I couldn't do anything with it even though i tried a lot understanding it by using various tools and reading the inbuilt tutorials. As it was my wish to do some thing with it... i could find someway to do it, anyway. As I read through the tutorials
I was able to know things better, but little by little. And I tried and tried and tried and then a stage came that I could do something with it. I was able to guess how other flashes were made and I made simple ones myself too.

Chapter 3 - ABS
When I was browsing over the internet looking flash movies and all..I came across the ABS.
For those who don't know ABS - It is the short for AlbinoBlackSheep, a cool community for flash movies games and all.
But it was after many days that I thought of posting some flash to the ABS forums. I signed up and posted two of my flash movies to it.

Oh! my... one of those was just selected and was hosted on the frontpage of ABS. It was a prank file called the Simple Game.

Then the ABS members told me to make some real game out of it.. and Oh! I am on the work!
