Overview

Never built a website before or bored with the limitations of HTML? If so, then this book is for you! We'll show you how to create an interactive website with all the features you could want (animation, video, sound and more) and you'll discover that building a website with Flash is both easy and fun! Practical, step-by-step instructions guide you directly through the process of achieving your goal. We won't bore you with pages of theory that you'll never use, or examples that aren't relevant to the main task. From creating your first animations to getting your finished site on the web, you'll get concrete results and a real sense of achievement at every stage. Whatever your current knowledge, you'll finish the book with a fully functional Flash website and all the skills to build your own site!

Everything you need to Build Your First Website with Flash is included on the accompanying CD, from a fully functional trial version of Flash MX (for those of you who don't already have it) to the finished version of every exercise in the book, and all of the images, and video footage that we use. As a bonus we've also included trial versions of other web creation and image preparation tools for you to experiment with (Dreamweaver MX, Fireworks MX, Freehand 10).
