I am taking a course on how to use flash at the moment.
So far I have learnt how to make text appear on the page at different times.
I must add though that I have discovered a site called flashkit that has a plethora of tutorials within it.
Thanks to this I have managed to make a creature appear to fly across the countryside !!
I will be posting my flash movie attempts in my own space on the Teachesr Portal soon - keep a look out for them.
