Alright so I'm going to help all you folks out there who have been dying to know how to make a digital clock in flash...get ready! Here are the easy steps!

1. In your timeline create 3 layers and name them actions, text and background. Similar
to what you see above...
2. Select frame 1 of your backgrounds layer and design the frame for
your digital clock.
3. Select frame 2 of your backgrounds layer and press F5.
4. Now go to frame 1 of your text layer and insert a dynamic text field
in your work area.
5. Select frame 2 of your text layer and press F5.
{To insert a Dynamic text field}
Select text tool from your tool box, Select Dynamic text from Text pop-up menu in the Property inspector. Click on your work area wherever you want the digital clock to appear.

6. Name this Dynamic text field instance as "clock_txt".
7. Go to frame 1 of actions layer. Copy and paste the script below into the action window.

time=new Date(); // time object
var seconds = time.getSeconds()
var minutes = time.getMinutes()
var hours = time.getHours()
if (hours<12)>
ampm = "AM";
ampm = "PM";
while(hours >12){
hours = hours - 12;
hours = "0" + hours;
minutes = "0" + minutes;
seconds = "0" + seconds;
clock_txt.text = hours + ":" + minutes + ":" + seconds +" "+ ampm;

8. Now go to frame 2 of the actions layer and press F6 to insert a new keyframe.
Still keeping the play head on the frame 2, go to action window and copy paste the script below...


9. Yaay! you're clock is now ready. Go ahead and press ctrl + enter
view your clock!

Alright. Here's my next project. We have to design a website using flash. I had the hardest time deciding on a topic, but I finally found one. Summer sales! I did summer sales for about 3 years and gained many survival skills on the streets and decided my wisdom needed to be shared. Not only about how to survive summer sales in general, but how to survive the streets...during the day...knocking on alot of interesting peoples' doors.
So lets see where this assignment takes me, eh.

Okay, so I changed my plan for my typographic animation
and here it is!

This is the beginning of my next project. We have to typographically animate a quote from a movie. I chose a quote from charlie and the chocolate factory. I will then animate using flash...wish me luck!
YAY! I finished my website. I feel so accomplished. check it out! Take special note of all the sweet roll-overs, I'd like to think they are my specialty.
So here's one of my digital comps. I don't know quite yet if this is what I will go with. My site is going to be about letterpress and all of it's wonderfulness.
