Create a custom flash cursor in Flash

In this flash tutorial the instructor shows how to create a custom cursor. This is created using shapes and simple Action Scripts. First open the flash tool and create a simple shape. Then convert the shape in to a movie clip and add simple animation to it where it switches colors. Now create a new layer and add Action Script code as shown in the video. This Action Script code is a command to make the shape follow the cursor. Now the shape follows the cursor as the cursor moves and appears as if the shape it self is a cursor. This video shows how to create a custom cursor in flash.
