Book News Annotation:

Written for designers, animators, and developers who have mastered basics of Flash, this tutorial gives step-by-step instructions for advanced techniques in animation, interactivity, transforming graphics and sound, and working with information, emphasizing how groups of techniques can be combined to solve a particular problem. Tasks build on each other, with simpler material progressing to more difficult. Tips in each task give hints about shortcuts, warnings about common mistakes, and suggestions for extending techniques, and sidebars discuss related matters. An accompanying web site provides Flash source files for tasks. Some basic familiarity with ActionScript is assumed.
