The animation tools have been greatly enhanced in Flash CS4, and Todd Perkins teaches their advanced capabilities in Flash CS4 Professional Tools for Character Animation. He shows how to master the new Motion Tween model and the Motion Editor to control easing and effects such as Squash and Stretch. He demonstrates how to use the new 3D tools to add rotation, perspective shadows, and layered animations. Complex interactive animations and walk cycles are created without a line of code using bone systems. Todd also demonstrates the power of advanced masking, sound effect syncing, and much more. Exercise files accompany the course.
If you are a premium subscriber to lynda.com or have purchased this title on a disk then you have access to the Exercise Files for this title. Exercise Files in this title are organized by chapters. In each movie, I will say what file we are working in, so you can open up that file and follow along. To make life easy for you, I have saved final versions of each file having the name of the file. And the way that I name those files is I ended the file name with _final. So, in the movie where I use the file ActionScript Animation, the final file for that is ActionScript Animation_final.
If you don't have access to the Exercise Files, don't worry. You can still follow along. I will show you what you have to do to set up your files in the same way so that you can learn the same techniques and practice them yourself.
