WC.Project Builder 2.A3

You have been asked to assist the International Student Associaton (ISA).  The association sponsors a series of monthly events, each focusing on a different culture from around the world.  The events are led by a guest speaker who makes a presentation, followed by a discussion.  The events are free and they are open to everyone.  ISA would like you to design a Flash movie that will be used with its website.  The movie starts by providing information about the series, and then provides a link to the upcoming event.

Sample Completed Project Builder 2.A3

  • Open a new Flash ActionScript 2.0 document and save it as isa3
  • Create an informational screen with general information about the association’s series
  • Assign an action to frame 1 that stops the movie
  • Create two more screens: 
    • a next event screen that presents information about the next event and
    • a series screen that lists the series (all nine events for the school year—September through May)
  • Add a button on the general information screen that jumps the movie to the series screen
  • On the next event and series screens, add a Return button that jumps the movie back to the general information screen
  • On the next event screen, create a second button that jumps the movie to the series screen
  • On the series screen, create a second button that jumps the movie to the event screen
  • For each button you create, specify different colors for each state of each button
  • Add an action that stops the movie on the next event screen, and another action that stops the movie on the series screen
    [Hint:  Place the stop actions on the same layer as the stop action created in step 3]
  • Test the movie
