You’re ready to get your teeth into some more sophisticated Flash projects. You’ve just broken the shrink-wrap on your new copy of Flash MX. Now, get Flash MX Magic, Third Edition. This book presents 15 start-to-finish projects, each a full chapter long, each in full color, each with all the code you need on CD-ROM, and each by one of the world’s best Flash developers.
The projects take full advantage of Flash MX and represent the direction Flash projects are headed in. You’ll build a modular preloader you can use whenever you’re creating a full Flash site. You’ll build an ActionScript-based “immersive panorama” that’ll inspire you with new ideas for your next training app. You’ll generate charts and graphs on the fly and deliver content from back-end databases.
Every project leads off with a “difficulty rating” that tells you exactly what you’re in for; calculations of final file sizes; how long it’ll take you to develop the project, and how long it’ll take your users to download it with both 56K modems and broadband connections. Very considerate. Very nifty. (Bill Camarda)
