Full Description

Foundation Flash 5 gives you all the skills you'll need to get started in version 5 of Flash. It takes you from your first drawing and animation project in Chapter 1, through to a strong foundation for exploring the sophisticated ActionScripting capabilities now built into Flash 5. It is a thorough and practical tutorial-based book, wherein each chapter helps to build upon a case study project—reinforcing what you've learned in that section and how it can be applied to real design projects. By the end of the book, you'll have built a working, Flash-rich website, and you'll have the skills to develop and modify your own Flash 5 effects. Professional-level design with Flash has taken a quantum step up with Flash 5. Foundation Flash 5 provides you with all the climbing gear you'll need for the steeper learning curve. You'll break a sweat. But when you get there, the view from the top is really worth the effort!

This book guides you through the fundamentals of the Flash 5 interface. It shows you how to create, manipulate and arrange your movie content, and then, how to publish your movie. Along the way, it covers the basics of ActionScripting, and then, in Part 3, moves onto more sophisticated ActionScripting and the principles of good site design.
