The Generics HD Flash Puppet v1.0

Designed in the tradition of the original 'explainer videos', The Educational Film, Dude and Babe Generic can add a distinctive retro flavor and appeal to your video. Whimsical and fun to look at, these characters will add immeasurably to your video project, helping to increase the engagement of your audience.

The Generics are fully rigged Flash puppets. They're made up of high-res images (2K, lossless PNGs) created in Photoshop and built in Flash.

These guys are ready to animate! Just drop them into your Flash file and start bringing them to life.

If you make explainer videos and can't draw people to save your life, give 'em a try.

•Completely editable PNGs (in Flash CS6, it's possible to edit an image in Photoshop and re-save it and Flash will update it in file. I don't know if this functionality is in earlier versions of Flash.)

If you find a problem with the rig, let me know and I'll try to fix it ASAP.

    Sean, thanks for the information and the quick reply.

    I was looking at this for a non-Flash project. Just a flat image where I could use the bodies to demonstrate how to do something. I think it might be too limiting for me, since I would need some additional hand positions and better positional representations.

    But they are very cool looking! :)

    Hi David, thanks for the question!

    The poses illustrated show most of the different options for each feature. Even the fingers have various positions. One thing I didn't show is that you could make a fist with the hand.

    I guess you could make a profile by pushing the features right to the edge and turning off an eye, There would be some minor colour needed but that'd be easy to add.. A back view could be made by turning off the features altogether.

    Using colour effects style (Advanced) you can tint the pieces to any colour you'd like.

    Also, the dude has a set of "fancy shoes" too.

    Is there any images that show all the different configurations you get? Also, are there different angles to the body available?

    Working on it! I'm in the process of moving by the end of the month, so maybe at the end of November.
