Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As a veteran Flash animator, Chris offers the reader a wealth of traditional Flash animation techniques; however, what makes this book even more valuable is the knowledge he offers of ways to use the latest features in the current tool." -Richard Galvan, Product Manager, Flash

You learn everything a Flash animator wants-lip syncing tricks, walk-cycles, photo cut-out animation and even more advanced concepts like frame-by-frame traditional animation." -Aaron Simpson, Animation Producer and Founder of ColdHardFlash.com

"Through it's refreshing and approachable design, this book was an instant hit and invaluable resource in our studio. We often recommend it to Flash newbies who are starting on their creative journey." -Gray Goldberger, Animation Director, Fablevision

Being a beginner to Dreamweaver and all Adobe products, the "Classroom in a Book" series of textbooks are great. This book and the rest of the CIB's give you hands on examples with their CD and they give you step by step instructions that show the ins and outs of the products as you go along with each exercise. I highly recommend this book for the people who learn by hands on experiences.
