I posted this a couple of weeks ago. I ready to move forward.
I need to have a flash application in which uses can create their own sign using Flash. I have a basic understanding of flash, but not good enough to do what I need. This project will requiring drag and drop, duplicating movieclips, adding text of different fonts and color and a final view.
I'm thinking I would have four types of sign designs. The user picks the type he wants drags it to the stage. A large version of the image snaps to the center of the stage. The users picks from a selection of 4 fonts (Arial Times Tahoma Script). He can change the color and size and position. The text is applied by click the cursor on top of the sign and the clicks ok or he can click undo and start over.
There are 3 prices and groups for signs.
Basic signs $25 2 font styles Arial or Times 1 color
2nd level signs 2 font styles basic colors
3rd level signs 4 font styles basic colors and extra image
The extra images on the 3rd level signs are resizable.
I possible the final design can be saved with the price and exported as a pdf or jpeg.
So what I would get from the program is a generic application that I can spruce up and replace my graphics with the graphics submitted. I know that prfessional flash designers hate using scenes. I believe that if each sign level was placed in a scene I could edit it easier. I know scenes add a few more kb to the final swf but I think that users of this application willing to wait for the load.
I'm tring to duplicate what I saw at [url removed, login to view] in regards to custom business card maker.
