Author Emily A VanderVeer, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that explains all of the tools and shows you step-by-step how to create animations from scratch as well as, why you want to do each step--in English, not programmer-ese.

Then, the author shows you how to manipulate your drawings by rotating, skewing, stacking, and aligning them add color and special effects, and multimedia files such as audio and video chips slash file size by turning bits and pieces of your drawings into special elements called symbols and, create composite drawings using layers. Next, she shows you how to add ActionScript actions to frames to create automatic effects and to buttons to create audience-controlled effects. Finally, she focuses on testing, debugging, and optimizing your animation. This most excellent book will show you tips and shortcuts for making Flash easier to work with as well as, making your animations as audience-friendly as possible.
