In Flash Professional CS5 Essential Training, author Todd Perkins explains the fundamentals of Flash Professional CS5, the industry standard for creating animations and interactive applications for the web, desktop, and mobile devices. This course starts with the basics, such as using the drawing tools to create simple animations, and progresses to automating animation with tweens and adding interactivity with ActionScript. This course also covers how to add sound and video to projects, enhance realism with effects like easing, and publish a project to a variety of platforms. Exercise files are included.
In this chapter, we'll look at how to publish an application using Adobe AIR. You can download Adobe AIR at www.get.adobe.com/AIR. Adobe AIR or Adobe integrated runtime allows you to publish Flash applications to the desktop so you can use all of your skills for creating web applications to create Desktop applications. In this chapter, you'll learn how to create a file for publishing in AIR and how to publish that file as a desktop application. We'll look at installing it into your operating system and using it just as a native app.
So again before we start out, make sure you have AIR installed, you can download it here, and then meet me back over in Flash.
