Up and Running with Flash Professional CC

with Anastasia McCune

Video: Welcome

Hi, I'm Anastasia McCune, and welcome to Up and Running with Flash Professional. In this course, we'll start with a blank slate and go through the fundamentals of creating a simple yet complete Flash project. I'll start by showing you how to navigate around Flash and utilize parts of the work space like the Stage, Library and Timeline. Then, I'll show you how to import artwork into Flash, as well as create your own using some of the drawing tools. I'll show you how to create simple animation by using motion and shape twins. And we'll also see how to incorporate audio and video, as well as interactive controls using buttons and simple ActionScripts. We'll be covering all these features plus plenty of other tools and techniques. So, let's get up and running with Flash Professional.
