    SOURCES AVAILABLE:
    .MAX;
    .FLA;
    .SWF;
    .PSD;
    .HTML;
    .Max? Its 3DMax for sure. not a very complex animation, should take about a day's work to learn enough to do that, without the template.

    Then its made into a .avi or .mpeg and imported into flash. Then the flash content is layered on top of it.

    i am attempting to learn max too and may i point you in the direction of keyframe (basic animation) theres loads of tutorials on this on the net (usually bouncing ball tutorials).

    However if you go to the actual discreet site then they do a downloadable update for help files and this really helped me.

    Hope that was a little helpful

    Thats nice. You could also do it in Swift 3D (would take longer but it can do it) Swift is a very easy to learn program that works directly with Flash. Heres something I've done with it. TheFlashAwards.com

    Easy enough...minus the flash

    If you like rendered animation in flash sites, check this one out!

    This is the site I am trying to match in terms of quality:

    http://www.whoswestudios.com/flashsite.html

    I have LightWave3D [8] (the latest version that is 3Ds Max's direct competitor and is equal to and in some ways better than 3Ds Max...anyway, the 3D modeling/animation in that file, as mentioned, is not too tricky...especially if you know how to setup the correct IK chains (Inverse Kinematics)...if you add those to the rig of that model, the robot arm would automatically move correctly at all the joints as you pulled the head unit around in its U-tun fashion...so it would all just be modeling, texturing, rigging and then a simple 1-2 animation...I could do THAT part..LOL too bad I am not that good with Flash yet to know how to layer things appropriately and make scenes flow from one to the next...just got Studio MX with Flash Pro it and am still learning.

    Help sites

    no prob, vibrazy, glad I could help. To answer you tutorials question:

    For PhotoShop: http://www.photoshopuser.com and http://www.screamdesign.com

    For LightWave 3D Help: Actually, the best source I have found IS the source. http://www.lightwave3d.com

    For 3ds Max help: As I am not as familiar with this app since I uise LightWave [8] mostly, I would recommend starting with http://www.discreet.com and seeing if they have some good tutorials online and then going to their partners/links sections to find good third-party sources.

    Hope that helps. Have fun!
