Article Focus:
In this video tutorial from CreativeCOW leader Tony Ross, you will add the rain to the cityscape via Photoshop. You will use a series of filters in Photoshop to create a single image to import into Flash, then create a 4-frame rain loop that can be animated at any angle. In addition you will add sound and lightning FX in Flash to complete the illusion of a thunderstorm. This is the last of a 3 part series, animating a rainy cityscape in Flash.
