Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
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.
