    Creating a camera flash bulb effect

    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to work out how to create an effect that looks like a camera flash going off. Specifically I have an image with several photographers with their cameras pointing towards the viewer, I need to add an effect that makes each photographer seem to be taking a picture (with flash effect).

    I was wondering if anyone had any advice or had even seen an example like this online anywhere.

    I can get a nice burn effect on the image by tweening the image to a keyframe with maxed out advanced values but I still cant get it looking like cameras going off.

    Thanks!

    Steven.

    you need this to look like a bunch of camera flashes going off...like paparazzi at a movie premier? or you need to simply bleach out/fade a series of images?...

    Yeah, a bunch of camera flashes is what i'm looking for. I have a nagging feeling that it will be very difficult to get it to look right, to be honest I think its quite cheesy, but powers-that-be want it and so I do it.

    Is this what you are after? http://skdzines.com/cameras.swf

    If so you can download the .zip file of how I did it which contains the photoshop file for you as well. If you have trouble achieving the same thing with your images let me know and I can explain how i did it.

    Hope this helps.

    Oh, by the way, this is in Flash 8 format. If you need it in MX only format let me know and I can change it.

    I removed it from the server because I hadn't heard anything and didn't want to keep it on there too long. I will put it back up, just let me know when you have downloaded so I can remove it again.

    Thanks

    I will put an MX only format up on Monday as I created it using Flash 8 at work and don't have 8 on my machine at home so I can't open it here either. I will repost on monday when it is up.

    hey madzigian, I have changed it to an MX2004 format. Let me know when you have it so I can remove it from the server.

    Thanks
