I don’t know how many times I have heard from other print designers, ” I want to learn flash”. “It would open up so many more opportunities for me.” I agree. That is why I have decided to try and teach myself a few things. I got my start with flash while I was still in college, and it was very simple technique. I do have to say it was a good place to start. I learned how to do things like simple animation and effects. I think the best way to teach yourself any program is by stumbling through tutorials. Pick something that you want to know how to do and find a tutorial for it.
I found this site that has some simple animation and effects tutorials as well as some simple action scripting tutorials.
I chose this one to try and do. I was successful although my image loader is not impressive enough to want to show off.
There are many tutorials like this out there I will list some below. I hope you enjoy!
