Book Description

18 Jun 2002 Training from the Source

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.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Macromedia now offers the Macromedia Flash 5 FreeHand 10 Studio, a packaged design and Web publishing solution. Using FreeHand and Flash in tandem, designers can create professional vector-based graphics, then export them to print or the Web.

Macromedia Flash 5 FreeHand 10 Studio: Training from the Source takes readers through several real world graphic and Web design projects designed to show how FreeHand can augment and enhance Flash, making the two programs a complete solution for what Macromedia calls multipublishing. Each lesson features one project, and each project uses components of both FreeHand and Flash. Readers will learn 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, users can easily drag and drop design concepts and illustrations from FreeHand's workspace into Macromedia Flash, maintaining symbols and layers, and then instantly publish to the Macromedia Flash Player. The enclosed CD contains all the files users need to complete each project, plus completed files for users to compare with their own results.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Clearly Written - Don't Know What Book Other Reviewers R 16 Aug 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I am very disappointed in this book. It takes you from one step to another without clearly defining the correct input that needs to be made in each lesson to make the lessons perform correctly. A good example of the missing information is to compare the finished lesson with the final products made available by the author: in several lessons there is a huge gap. HUGE! I have been looking on Macromedia's Site for updates and/or clarifications, and can not find any. This book is a giant frustration and you will need to investigate the difference in code between the final product you create via the lessons and what is presented by author as the finished product. The good news is that you can see the finished works you are supposed to create in each lesson, as they are included on the CD. The bad news is that you will need another book to explain what the basis of the code you where not introduced to means.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is not clearly written 25 Aug 2003
By deltatangou - Published on Amazon.com
This book jumps around critical material and content that requires the reader to open the completed lessons provided by the author to see what code/content is missing. The worst part of this is that unless you are an experienced programmer, you will not be able to understand what is happening. In fact, you will probably need to purchase another book to understand what is actually going on. These comments are directed primarily at the Flash-related lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for aspiring computer graphic artists 8 Oct 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Flash MX FreeHand 10: Advanced Training from the Source by computer expert Brad Kozak is a solid and "user friendly" reference and self-teaching tool for learning how to use the Flash MX and FreeHand 10 computer software drawing tools. Embracing a "learn by doing" approach to graphical design, individual chapters address a variety of practical projects ranging from animating a simple logo to designing a sophisticated multimedia website. An accompanying multi-platform CD-ROM includes basic tools for completing sample projects. Flash MX FreeHand 10 is very highly recommended for aspiring computer graphic artists with an interest in learning this handy and open-ended drawing software.
