5.0 out of 5 stars Great and informative book 16 Dec. 2010
By Fulvio
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book very interesting and informative, since I always had an interested in flash. The book is clear and explains to you different steps about creating an animation in a chronological structure, such as the different aspects of flash that one needs to take in consideration when developing it. However I didn't receive the book on the estimated day, but nether the less, the important is that I received it, in good shape, with the tutorial CD. The packaging was good as well and lastly I would like to state that I'm more than happy to have purchased this book. Highly recommend for beginner interesting in developing a flash animation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Animation for Adobe Flash Professional Review 11 Jan. 2013
By Lisa Fusco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book came at a time when I had to learn Adobe Flash fast and good. No one book can cover it all when it comes to flash, but this is one book that I go back to. It shows the start of projects to help you technically plan, good work habits. With flash preparation goes a long way to making a project technically easier. It does not discuss design or composition or screen angles.
