Hi, My name is Maggie and I am a highschooler who has gotten into Flash ever since I got my Animation Project. Since then I had an urge to teach others how to use Flash as well as learning from professionals. I had chosen Blogger to post tutorials about how to make certain effects on Flash and hope people really learn something from reading my posts.
You can e-mail me if you have any comments, questions or suggestions to email@example.com
or use the form below and send me an e-mail.
In this tutorial, you will learn about making the snow effect using complete Actionscript 2.0 code.
Step1) File>New Flash FIle (AS2)
Step2) Change the background colour to black (or other darker colours) using the properties panel. There is no need to change the canvas size or frame rate unless you want to.

Step4) Click on the following link and copy the code:
Snow Effect Code
Step5) Close the Actions page and press CTRL+ENTER to test your falling snowflakes!!
