Tired of flipping from one program to another, using FreeHand to design graphics and Flash to animate them and publish them to the Web? Macromedia Flash MX FreeHand 10 Studio streamlines the process by letting you use FreeHand and Flash in tandem, from one interface, to create professional vector-based graphics and export them to print or the Web. And you don't have to pick up two separate books to learn how to do it, either. Macromedia Flash MX FreeHand 10: Advanced Training from the Source is an accessible, hands-on tour of how to use FreeHand to augment and enhance Flash.
With Macromedia Flash MX FreeHand 10: Advanced TFS, you learn by doing. Each lesson focuses on one real-world project that uses components of FreeHand and Flash, showing both what you can do with the programs and exactly how to do it. The opening lessons give you a solid foundation in the basics: how to combine text and graphics, work with paths and points, use layers and styles, and prepare files for print or the Web. From there, learn how to drag and drop illustrations from FreeHand to Flash--maintaining symbols and layers--and then instantly publish them to the Flash Player. The accompanying CD-ROM contains all the files you need to complete each project, plus final versions with which you can compare your own results.
