    NS's Flash tutorial 1: V-CAM logo

    Post by NS01 on 7/17/2011, 10:07 am

      I'm making this tutorial because I've had quite a few people asking me on how you put your logo/watermark on a V-CAM in Flash.
      It's really simple to do. You can add sprites, text, bars, etc...

      I will post screen shots along the way so you won't get confused.

      Ok, first off, get your V-CAM ready. If you haven't got a V-CAM, you can download it from here:

      http://bryanheisey.com/blog/?page_id=13

      Remember, we're working with Action Script 2 so make sure you have an Action Script 2 Flash document up, not Action Script 3.



      I will be using CS3 professional for this tutorial as it supports Action Script 2 and 3.

      Ok, you have one project window open, opening up the V-CAM will open a new project window.

      You'll have something like this if you're using the V-CAM you downloaded from the link above.



      You can make your own V-CAM, but that's so much effort D:

      Go back to your 'Untitled-1' window. On the library box, you can switch between libraries to make life easier.



      Click on 'vcam_as2'. And drag the V-CAM from the library to the stage. You now should have your V-CAM on a plain white stage or any other canvas colour you're using.

      Now double click the V-CAM. A new interface will appear.

      There should be two layers named 'actions' and 'viewfinder'.



      Click on the first frame on the 'actions' layer.

      You can either press F9 for a short cut key or go to Window > Actions.

      You'll have a new dialogue box popped up on your screen. This is the Action Script panel.



      Don't mess around with anything inside it.

      Scroll down and you will see a code like this:

      _visible = false;

      I have also highlighted the code on the screenshot.

      I want you to change this code, into this:

      _visible = true;

      Changing the code to 'true' makes everything appear on your V-CAM.

      Now, we'll need to get rid off the crap on your V-CAM until you end up with something like this:



      Make sure you've clicked on the 'viewfinder' layer and the first frame to delete the things off of your V-CAM.

      Right! Now we can add different features to your V-CAM yay!

      Make new layer(s) for anything new your put on your V-CAM!

      I will be adding text, sprite and some black bars to my V-CAM. Nothing fancy, just simple. Of course, you can add whatever you want.

      I convert my text into a Movie Clip to add different filter effects.

      Once you have finished, you are all set and ready to go!

      Go back to the stage and test the V-CAM out!

      Now no one can decompile you animations and take credit for them Razz
      You can only do this method after you completed your animation, otherwise it will be harder to animate your V-CAM.

      Here's a little something I made for you xD

        Oh wow

        I've knew all this, but eh. Your system btw, needs to be done when the anim is finished or else it's gonna be hard to animate the vcam.

        However I know a better system that I use and I don't need to delete nothing Very Happy

          Yeah, I forgot to mention that thanks xD

          This is what I do lol.

          There is another method where you can move the text/symbols with the V-CAM but on a separate layer.

                LOL! ^

                But there is another quicker way. Just make stuff within your V-Cam which acutally works better I believe.

                  That's what this tutorial is about xD

                  Did you even read it?

                  Unless you're talking about re-creating a V-CAM.

                    But you said you have to use it after you animate? xD!

                    I read it all, just why delete the viewcamlayer?

                      Make sure you've clicked on the 'viewfinder' layer and the first frame to delete the things off of your V-CAM.

                      You misread it. Delete the colour bar and such otherwise it'll show during your animation, all you want to keep is the border of the V-CAM.

                      It's EASIER to do it after your animation otherwise you'll have to keep clicking on that thin border if you want to move your V-CAM around, unless you add black bars which makes it more easier.

                            I hate using this method simply because of the fact it like makes everything look blank and it's hard to see the actual area the V-Cam is over.

                                              No...I've never used a V-Cam before, I didn't even know it existed.

                                                What's 2+2? You must know this if you want to use the Virtual Camera.

                                                  2+2 is 10.

                                                  Everyone knows that >_>
