Making Armatures With the Bones Tool in Flash CS4. Getting started with the bones tool can be intimidating and tricky, but it can be your best friend for animating once you've had some practice.

Making Armatures With the Bones Tool in Flash CS4

You can create bones (armatures) for graphic shapes (like a simple triangle) or a set of movie clips. During this screencast, I'll demonstrate using the bones tool with shapes and will follow up using bones with movie clips. Animating shapes with bones gives your animation abilities you don't have with a simple graphic shape tween.

Jack Kevorkian, known for his life’s work of advocating assisted suicide and for helping to end over 130 lives with his ominous-sounding Thanatron, or “machine of death,” was also an oil painter. The doctor, who spend 8 years in prison, created a little-known body of work tinged with the horror of pain; illustrating his controversial ideas on compassion, the paintings take aim at his religious critics and appeal to a nuanced moral ideal where death is seen simultaneously as a terror and an escape. Kevorkian’s Thanatron takes its name from the ancient Greek personification of death; in his paintings, he also uses mythological themes. In “Fever,” he illustrates a hell composed of the ill and suffering; like Dante’s Virgil, he leads his painted patient through the depths of agony and fear with wide, sweeping brushstrokes. The Christian Brotherhood is reimagined as a monster characterized by multiple grotesque, sharp-toothed heads vaguely reminiscent of Inferno’s Satan.

It will help you select large areas of the white background in this kind of image by using the Magic Wand while experimenting with the Tolerances factor found in the Options Bar. Please note that in this demonstration, we're making a rough selection using the Lasso tool, and QuickMask. LOAD the first Diagram "Float" Now, Open the final diagram.
