I thought, for the Stickpageportal community's flash users, we could share and compile a list of helpful download links and indexes of downloads to make finding tools much easier. This could decrease the amount of threads made in help, and could get some of our users into new styles and methods of making unique pieces.

Tools and Plugins

Basic/Mixed Tool Sources.
I found a very nice index of flash plug-ins available to everyone on Rtil's site. The V-Cam, pixel Plug in, Zoom tools, and of my favorite ones is the drawing tool. Check it out yourself:

3-D In your SWFs
I haven't tried this out myself. If you have money to spend, want to "Take it" somehow, and are interested in making 3-d quality flashes, go for it.

AS Help
Some environments, editors, and more helpers for your flash games!
http://www.swftools.com/tools-category.php?cat=289

Lipsync Help
A nice resource for lipsyncing tools to help people who haven't developed the skill of lipsyncing yet.
http://www.swftools.com/tools-category.php?cat=530

Flash Players
Really neat new flash player upgrade for Macromedia flashes. (I don't know about adobe.) Has a play, stop and timeline. The useful tools we can use to judge, edit, and control flashes nicely.

Some more helps to flash player. All of them seem good!

Optimizers!

reduces SWF files size up to 70% thanks to amazing algorithms of vectors, shapes, morphing, sounds and other optimizations.
enough said there.

Neat Helpers
Screen Savers
Makes any flash you want a screen-saver. :D Try and get creative with it and you'll make some good ones.

Screen Recording
Hypercam is free if you don't give a shit about the unregistered hypercam text on the corner, but you can crop that out anyway.

Any other people who want to contribute to a list of downloads for flash, please do so.

Thanks, real helpful thread! Stickeh, please.

I'll post it. It's a good link! I think there is a flash-crash thing in another index that isn't so good, and I'm sure it'll help with clarification. It's an important issue!

If you meant there is another thread like this, I think this would cover a bit more.

:P

I agree that a stickeh would be nice. :3

Edit: Hooray for sticky!

I'm going to continue looking for plugins to make this thread better. :3

News: Found swftools.com which provided us with loads of plug ins, apps, and helpers to flashes. I put up the ones that would help.

I'll look a bit more later to make this thread better.

Halfway there, now I'm gonna go and spam another thread, c'yall round

(When I'm postin my own tuts)

Spamming is a big offense in this forum. You can just talk on this forum like you're not an impatient idiot and not risk getting infractions.

By the way, reported.

For some reason my avatar is a still picture, is it that I have to post 10 posts to get the animation to work and while I've done under 10 posts its just a still, like how when u post 10 things u can make your own threads, stuff like that.

Kitsune
07-09-2008, 08:08 PM
No, It can be any post number, but it must be an animated gif.

Stop breaking the rules in my thread please.

07-09-2008, 08:17 PM
I didn't know it as against the rules to spam because I haven't read the rules yet, its wierd though because I posted it up as a gif and yet it still wont work.

Ty neway and if I can find a way to fav. ppl I'll fav. you

Kitsune
07-09-2008, 08:20 PM
Thanks, but there isn't much you can do with favorites on this forum, lol.

Just use the edit button at the bottom-right of your posts, and put the content of the extra posts into one post, making everybody happy.

You can post this question in the general help section, because it got me stumped to be honest. I'm not sure on avatars and how they work like that. Someone else might.

This will be a handy resource for anyone wanting to install addons/extensions Flash. Not only does the page have addons for Macromedia Flash Professional 8, but also for Flash 5, Flash MX, Flash 8, CS3 and CS4.

Make sure you install the extension manager first, it's also on that page.

My personal favourites are auto-save, duplicate layer, frames to symbol, and layer colour.
