Bespoke Flash CS4 ActionScript 3 Day Introduction Overview

Flash Logo with Introduction Course Delegates

Adobe Flash CS4 is now a web standard and the only widely distributed technology for integrating vector graphics and animation into web sites. This combination of design and animation tools is complimented by a strong development environment that allows programmers to create highly interactive database driven technologies.

Adobe Flash CS4 sees the arrival of a host of exciting new features, including an improved script editor (with a visual interface); a revamped library interface; a new Undo feature; powerful run-time effects; and breakthrough motion-graphics capabilities to name but a few.

In this 3 day course for experienced users of Flash, we focus on the use and creation of Flash Action Scripts including animation with ActionScript.

By the end of this 3 day course you will have a good understanding of the core features and functions of ActionScript and will be able to implement it effectively yourself.


Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites

This course is for Flash designers who have some experience in Flash design and who would like to learn basic and intermediate ActionScript.

You will need basic experience in using Flash. Ideally, you will have taken our Adobe Flash CS4 Design Introduction 2 Days course.
