    Default Can the Playbook help my feature film with an .swf video?!?! HELP!

    Hi,

    This is a desperate cry for help...!!
    In 5 days I am producing a low budget feature film (Longtails - The Movie - Home). I have been let down by the Art Department who were supposed to be designing a futuristic looking Cash Safe Facia. It was supposed to have a keypad entry system to allow 4 different combinations of 2 digit numbers to open the safe...

    I was about to start looking for random keyboard numberpads to attachto the front of the safe but then I had a thought:

    Would it be possible to create a flash animation of a keypad with display and menu options to play through my Playbook attached to the front of the safe?!

    A lot could be done in post production with sound effects and grading but it would be great to have something nice looking on set.... I don't have the first idea about how to create it though...any help would be much appreciated (might even get you a feature film credit!!)

    Thanks very much!

    Yes, you could have a little flash app running that would work just fine. Just make sure people don't swipe while using it!

    Noir, locked in an old house, low levels of trust, big time loot. Nice plot! Let us know when it ks done!

    Do you have a design, mock-up or sketch? What "look" are you going for?

    You can save a SWF file on the local filesystem, then load it in the web browser by navigating to the file path (e.g. file:///accounts/1000/shared/whatever). Just make sure Flash content is enabled in the web browser settings. There shouldn't be a space in the folder name, an underscore _ is OK. I use it all the time for presentation and training materials in Flash form.

    Yup. But we need to find one first!

    I thought the OP already had a working Flash file... Instead of making a Flash animation, why not do something with HTML and Javascript? Use images for buttons and come up with some script to change the display show a "Wrong password" or "Success!" message. You could grab some sample JS calculator apps and work from there

    Thanks very much everyone...!
    So it does seem possible then? I don't have a mock up but I can do one simply enough.... What would be the best way to go about creating/having made an .swf?
    And how could it work?

    Would it be possible to have a keypad with a display saying:
    'Enter first code...'
    'Accepted...'
    'Enter second code.....'
    etc etc

    As for HTML and Javascript....I'm open to ideas!

    The film is set in an abandoned building site of a house, which is really run down but the safe has been put there very recently and needs to look completely out of place. We want an impressive hi tech feel to it...

    Thanks so much guys :-)
