About this book

Video is one of the most exciting features on today's Internet, with widespread adoption being made possible by advances in bandwidth and software. But simply streaming video clips to Web users is only the tip of the iceberg! Flash CS3 offers a whole host of advanced video features, allowing you to create breathtaking user experiences.

And this book, the second edition of the critically-acclaimed Foundation Flash 8 Video, shows you how to make the most of video in Flash CS3. The authors start with the basics of creating video ready for use on the web using popular applications such as Windows Movie Maker and iMovie, creating FLV (Flash video) using both Flash and other applications such as Sorenson Squeeze, and importing that video into Flash.

With that out the way, they then turn their attention to essential practical techniques, such as creating and customizing video players, applying blends and filters to Flash video, effective use of video alpha channel and masks, captioning, cue points, interactivity using the Camera object, going full screen, and much more.

This edition is fully-updated for Flash CS3 and ActionScript 3.0, and includes many new examples.

  • Learn how to create video for the web using popular applications such as iMovie and Movie Maker, and turn it into Flash Video using Flash, and other tools such as Sorenson Squeeze
  • Learn several essential practical techniques for manipulating video in Flash
  • Updated for Flash CS3 and ActionScript 3.0, with new examples

About the authors

The career of Adam Thomas can best be defined as a successful hobby. Having an early interest in computers and being mostly self-taught, he attended Humber College in Toronto, studying computer information systems. Soon after his graduation in 2001, Adam was invited back to his school to be a professor of rich media and Web development. Alongside teaching, he runs a successful web studio called Robin Hood Tech. Adam takes pride in employing former students who he has had the privilege of teaching and giving them the opportunity to gain experience and excel in a competitive field. Adam is cofounder of the "Robin Hood" business model, which advocates for justice in business. Adam strives for integrity and simplicity but his true motivation is his wife and family who are daily reminders of love, faith and blessing.
