How to Cheat in Adobe Flash Cs3: The Art of Design and Animationby Chris Georgenes
Synopses & Reviews
Frustrated by the overwhelming nature of Flash?
Want to get up to speed with the program fast so you can concentrate on your animation?
Need to solve problems quickly to get work done to time and to budget?
Then 'How to Cheat in Flash' is for you!
This book is different from the rest because it shows you, step by step, how to work from the problem to the solution when creating Flash animations, from the viewpoint of an animator who has been commissioned to create a job and is working to a deadline.
It is task orientated; every example shows real life commercial work. So, it's not so much a case of 'what does this filter/tool/option do?', as 'this is the task I've been set - how do I achieve it?' The solution may involve a variety of tools and techniques; it may take many steps to complete, or only a few. The free CD-Rom includes all the files you need to put your skills into practice as you read, and much more!
It's an accessible (conversational in style), practical book and CD package which also provides artistic inspiration, a goldmine of timesaving practical tips, tricks and step-by-step workthroughs. You will wonder how you survived without it.
