"A superb resource that budding Flash designers should not be without. This [Flash MX Savvy] is one of the best Flash MX tutorials yet produced. 5/5 stars"
--3D World Magazine

Savvy: practical know-how

Flash MX is so powerful and versatile that even experienced web designers require additional help to move up to the next level. Focusing on program features as well as results, Flash MX Savvy anticipates your goals and uses professional examples to show you the best ways to attain them. You can either work your way through the book or zero in on any topic or group of tasks, from content creation to media integration to interactivity and ActionScript.

Hands On tutorials allow you to apply different techniques to projects that will yield useful, real-world results. Web designers, animators, artists, and developers will discover what's new in Flash MX, learn the whys, not just the hows, and find a helpful ActionScript reference.

Coverage includes:
Content Creation: painting and drawing, text manipulation, reusable content.

ActionScript: understanding ActionScript as a language, Movie Clip management and parameter control, plus a reference section with essential ActionScript terms.

Interactivity: interface elements and controllers, new Flash components.

Audio Integration: synchronization, compression schemes, scripting of audio interactivity.

Media Integration: with audio applications, with Director, with CD-ROM content, with 3D animation.
