Hello,
I'm amazed by those Flash intro menus: so simple and so effective..
I was wondering if this is all hand-coded or if there's a Flash menu software or some Flash component that allows me to do that...

It may sounds a silly question, but after discovering FlashEff for amazing image transitions similar to those found on Templatemonster, and Artisteer for getting great looking templates in half a minute, maybe there is also some winner Flash menu software that I've yet to discover...

I saw demos from these sites:

http://www.antssoft.com/swfmenu/index.htm
http://www.flashvortex.com/menus.php
http://www.crystalbutton.com/

And a couple like these, but, let's face it, nothing really serious compared to some Templatemonster menus:

Thanks

Hi,

The templateMonster templates looks timline animated - you can download
free template here: http://www.templatemonster.com/free-templates.php

I haven't found/looked for a menu generator - but if you google as3 menu
you can find templates like:
http://www.lemlinh.com/flash-tutorials-12-menu-with-actionscript-3-and-xml/

If I were to do one I would make it in actionscript and have it load
structure, labels and links from a external XML document. - Then
to create the effects I would use a tweening library like TweenLite

Best,
