Flash Professional CS5: Code Snippets and Templates in Depth

with David Gassner

Video: Welcome

Hi! My name is David Gassner and I'd like to welcome you to Flash Professional CS5: Code Snippets and Templates in Depth. In the first part of this series, I've described the new Code Snippets feature that helps you quickly add ActionScript code to your Flash projects. I'll start with snippets that control the Timeline with simple ActionScript command such as play and stop. Then I'll move to more complex and interesting effects such as animating objects on the Flash stage and implementing drag-and-drop interfaces.

Welcome

Hi! My name is David Gassner and I'd like to welcome you to Flash Professional CS5: Code Snippets and Templates in Depth. In the first part of this series, I've described the new Code Snippets feature that helps you quickly add ActionScript code to your Flash projects. I'll start with snippets that control the Timeline with simple ActionScript command such as play and stop. Then I'll move to more complex and interesting effects such as animating objects on the Flash stage and implementing drag-and-drop interfaces.

For each code snippet, I'll show you how to apply it to a presentation and then I'll review the code. I'll show you how it works and then offer suggestions for how you can customize the code for your own needs. In the second part of the series, I'll demonstrate the new file templates that are included with Flash Professional CS5. They can be used both as starting points for your own presentations and as effective learning tools. This video series is designed for anyone who uses Flash Professional CS5.

If you're new to the product, these tools can help you advance your knowledge of the ActionScript 3 programming language and other advanced tools and if you're an experienced Flash developer, the Code Snippets feature in particular can help you become a faster, more productive developer. Either way, I hope you'll find that this video series helps you advance your knowledge and use of Flash Professional CS5.
