Hello! My name is Mordy Golding and welcome to Flash Catalyst CS5 Essential Training. Flash Catalyst is an exciting new application from Adobe that allows you to create and publish content using Flash technology without writing code. In this title, I'll show you how you can transform your existing artwork from Photoshop, Illustrator, or Fireworks, into fully interactive projects such as widgets, microsites, rich Internet applications, user interfaces and prototypes.
I'll teach you how to create components, the building blocks of any Flash Catalyst project, and how to easily define animation with smooth and graceful motion to get professional results. I'll take you step-by-step through the process of integrating rich media, like video and sound, and building common interface elements such as data lists, which are scrolling lists of repeating items. Along the way, I'll share valuable tips, insight, and advice from a designer's perspective on how you can get the most out of using Flash Catalyst.
Whether you're a user experience designer, a web designer, or even a print designer with no experience in interaction design, I can help you get started with building interactive projects without learning how to write a single line of ActionScript or computer code. So let's get started, because I can't wait to show you how easy it is with Flash Catalyst.
