Multimedia Programming Exam 1

Following is a Flash project with several features learned in this course so far.

You goal is to reproduce this project in as much detail as possible. You will be allowed to see this movie before the test, and can prepare by doing it on your own. During the test, how ever, you must recreate this WITHOUT reference to your book, the internet, or notes.You MAY reference the built-in Flash help.


Your grade depends on how closely in features and function your versiopn matches this. I'm not worried about specific shades of colors, or exact shapes. What will matter is if the same types of animation and button function is the same.

There are a total of 100 points possible, with the point assignment given below. The list below account for only 70 points, the other 30 points are for general asthetics, e.g. the look and feel. Essentually, if you do a good job, those 30 points are free!

Graded features with point values:

I will be specifically looking for each of these features:

  1. The star field is made of spinning (identical) stars. (5 pts)

  9. The UFO button has a flashing beacon on top. (4 pts)
  10. The UFO button lights rotate when the mouse is over it. (5 pts)
