Long time no see…

Well, the last few months were manic and the blog had to take a back seat. Sorry it’s been so long! I’ve now finished University and am searching for a job! It’s hard, I keep putting myself out there and I’m getting nothing back, sitting about the house is so boring!! So to keep my sanity I will continue with my blog. Now I don’t have a specific project, I aim to mix up the posts from other areas such as fashion and music, as well as anything that takes my interest in the art world.

End Of…

I have FINALLY finished my Flash project. I know I haven’t really written on here for a while, but this is due to my complete lack of skills with the program and a few weeks of late nights and stressing out!

I will be uploading soon onto here, I just haven’t got a clue how to do so, as the file is rather large…

These last few days have been a nightmare! I had managed to get it all together, and had even finished the action scripting. Which anyone who has used Flash I’m sure will agree, that this is the most confusing and complicated thing EVER. Literally, I was completely loosing my marbles with what action I had linked to what button. With 16 scenes and at least 3 buttons per page, I really was getting into a muddle. Anyway, as I said, I had done the action scripting and eventually everything was doing what I wanted it too. I went into Uni yesterday for the deadline and just needed some help with my sounds, as they were overlapping each other when I clicked to go backwards. I hadn’t got very far with it when I had to go to class, so I saved it. Half way through the process though, the program crashed, I figured it didn’t matter that it didn’t save, so I just shut down the program and went to class.

I come back later to load it up and get help with the sound, so I can hand it in. I click open and what does it do… It doesn’t open at all and says there is an error with the file! The program had corrupted my entire file. After weeks of working on it, the file corrupts on the day of my deadline… Luckily my teacher was very nice about it and said to hand in whatever I do have with me and we can sort it out. Which we now have, as I was smart and made a back up at home. Still a very horrible experience!

I know that I never want to use Flash ever again. It’s a very unreliable program, but I did learn a lot and I suppose that is the point at the end of the day…
