This book will take you further with Flash Professional 8 than you’ve ever gone before.
Longtime Flash developer/instructor David Vogeleer begins with a look at what’s new, and a quick refresher on core Flash topics. But, by page 143 of this 800-plus-page book, you’ve left the basics behind.
Vogeleer thoroughly introduces ActionScript, with extensive coverage of movie clip objects, events, text, and Flash components, plus a helpful chapter on debugging (and avoiding bugs!) Next, he steps “outside” Flash. You’ll learn to create external ActionScripts that can be reused by many Flash files, integrate external visual content and data, and leverage ASP and PHP.
By the time he’s done, he’s illuminated a wide range of advanced topics: Flash remoting; consuming web services; Flash Video streaming; even extending Flash with custom commands, behaviors, and panels. Very powerful, very slick. Bill Camarda, from the January 2006 Read Only
