The latest update to one of our best-selling Macromedia Flash titles, Flash 5! Creative Web Animation covers all the newest software enhancements, including a brand new interface, Smart Clips, Movie Explorer, Keyboard Shortcuts, and the fundamentals of programming with ActionScript. The book contains new or revised chapters on everything you need to know to get the most out of the program--drawing, sound, the library, animation, interactivity, and finally, testing and publishing your work.
Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned Flash user, authors Derek Franklin and Brooks Patton lead you step-by-step through the basics of the software's many features and tools, and then move on to interactive tutorials, sample demos and a training tour of Web animation. You'll also find tips for making the development process flow more efficiently, plus a content-rich CD containing all the files for the practice exercises, a trial version of Flash 5, and demos of other Macromedia products.
