Overview

As a serious Web designer, you'll want to do one thing and one thing only when you lay your hands on the latest version of Flash: Start tinkering with all its new features. Problem is, that's hard to do on someone else's dime. With Flash MX 2004 Magic, you don't have to! In these pages, 10 Flash wizards draw on their own professional experience to offer 12 real-world projects that let you explore Flash MX 2004 at your leisure. With a focus on areas that can be troublesome for professional users—whether because they present thorny issues or because they draw on completely new features—each lesson provides need-to-know tips, proven techniques, and best practices. By working through the step-by-step tutorials (whose project files and code you'll find on the accompanying CD), you soon will be finding your way around all of Flash MX 2004's new features: CSS support, enhanced components, JSFL, and more. In addition to the code listings and exercise files on the CD-ROM, you'll find videos that clearly demonstrate step by step all the procedures you need to complete in order to create the projects.

The continued strength of Flash (see also Computer Media, LJ 2/1/04) drives demand for new titles. For beginning to intermediate users, Show Me! offers step-by-step instructions and screen shots on tasks from creating a project plan to publishing a movie, along with sidebars, timesaving tips, See also references, and "Did You Know?" sections. New features are nicely highlighted in the text and in a separate indexed appendix, sample files are available online, and keyboard shortcut and troubleshooting sections add value. The last chapter outlines features in (the now separate) MX Professional 2004, also listed in an appendix. For intermediate users seeking new ways to manipulate Flash, the full-color Macromedia Flash MX 2004 Magic highlights projects from many design experts, with "Now Try This" idea sections. The CD contains sample code, exercise files, a free trial of Flash MX 2004, and step-by-step QuickTime video instructions. Useful projects make this an appropriate supplemental purchase for more comprehensive guides; purchase Show Me! for its greater coverage if you can afford only one.
