Windyface project.

I want to incorporate photographs into a simple flash movie.

I have followed the AnalogReadSerial tutorial which was successful... I now want to use the potentiometer to filter photos, which are just stored on my computer (macbook), into a moving flash pattern.

I have read the http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Interfacing/Flash tutorial, and have downloaded TinkerProxy 2 but am unsure of the steps to take next.

If anyone has any knowledge in making arduino and flash communicate, tips or even guide me in the next step to take it would be much appreciated.

Cheers Fiona


Your attachment did not work

The arduino side can be quite like - http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Potentiometer - only a bit different

The code below gives you one pot value per second.

int potPin = 2;    // select the input pin for the potentiometer
int val = 0; 
unsigned long last = 0;

void setup() 

void loop() 
  if (millis() - last > 1000)   // once every 1000 milliseconds
    last = millis();
    val = analogRead(potPin);    // read the value from the sensor
    Serial.println(val, DEC);

You need to install tinkerproxy, that "bridges" the serial port into a network-socket. You can test this by using a simple terminal program like telnet

telnet localhost 5331 The strings from your arduino sketch should be coming in.

No experience with Flash so thats where my 2 cents stop,
