If you're familiar with Flash, but want to take your ActionScript skills to the next level to add more complex interactivity, then this course is exactly what you're looking for. Throughout this course, you'll see all the features of Flash Pro that you can utilize to make writing ActionScript as smooth as possible. We'll start at the beginning,discussing how to control the colors and fonts of ActionScript in Flash.
