This video is short and to the point. In this video we cover the basics of how to find Flash source files and how to work with them throughout our training. When you download one of our online Flash courses, source files come with it: simple to use! Simply copy and paste, you'll be good to go. Tweak a little for some real fun!
We're looking at our source code, we see here that we have a lot of mains, a lot of extra files that we're not really using. They're basically backups for videos. So every course that you download, you'll see that the source files that are associated with those courses have their own back-up files for videos. So how do you work with them? For example, let's say that we've just viewed video 8 and we wanted to just grab the code from it. The way we do it is click on video 8. Then, simply do command "a", grab everything, copy it, go into our main, command "a" again, command "v", paste inside, and we're good to go! Now if we run our application, it's going to run our sample from our video 8. Don't worry about the details of what's inside it, but it's just important to know that you don't want to run your application directly from main 8 because it's built to work with only one file which is our main. So what we'll do is just copy and paste it into our main.as whenever we want to view content -- if we choose not to edit it and work on it ourselves.
