Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Flash isn’t just for the Web anymore. Increasingly, its low cost and flexibility are finding it a home in broadcast and video production, too. Flash MX Design for TV and Video is the first comprehensive guide to using Flash in TV commercials, cartoon shorts, music videos, DVDs, even TV shows, pilots, and feature-length films.

This book covers every aspect of workflow and production, starting with a detailed look at what you need to know about TV raster images, broadcast standards, and Flash’s own limitations (for example, its ceilings on file size and the numbers of frames, layers, and symbols you can use in a movie). They take you all the way through to postproduction, including exporting image sequences for integration with conventional production; and creating titles, fades, and credits.

Best of all: the case studies and interviews with leading-edge practitioners, such as Ron Crown, who leads a broadcast animation shop that now employs more than 35 Flash illustrators. Crown tells you what can and can’t be done well in Flash, what the trade-offs are (fast production vs. high up-front costs), even where the undocumented bugs are (Flash MX fixes some and introduces some regrettable new ones).
