Bespoke Flash CS6 ActionScript - 3 Day Advanced Overview

Flash Logo and Advanced Course Delegates

Adobe Flash CS6 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 CS6 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.

During this 3 day Flash ActionScript advanced course Adobe Flash designers with prior ActionScript experience will be provided with the knowledge and hands-on practice they need to build more flexible and dynamic design-based Adobe Flash content.

This course focuses on more advanced ActionScript topics that will remove a reliance on Timeline-based visual tools. You will learn to generate dynamic design and navigation elements that cannot be created without ActionScript.


Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites

This course is for experienced Flash designers who have a basic understanding of ActionScript and who want to take their ActionScript knowledge to the next level.

You will need significant experience in using Flash. Ideally, you will have taken our Adobe Flash CS6 Design Introduction 2 Day course.
