- [Todd] Hi, I'm Todd Perkins. Welcome to Flash Professional Power Shortcuts. If time is money, the speed of your workflow is directly connected to your bank account. This course is about finding ways to save as much time as possible when working in Flash. We'll discuss saving time while drawing and animating, and while writing code. We'll even talk about how to save your user's time when they're viewing your applications by improving performance and decreasing load times. My goal is that by the end of this course you'll have found more than one way to save time on a daily basis.
