4.0 out of 5 stars beware - an update - not a new book, 20 Feb. 2006

This review is from: Flash Math Creativity (Paperback)
Flash Math Creativity is a great book.
BUT - if you have version one - ALL the examples and actionscript wizards are the same.
I bought this thinking i was going to get new inspiration. I just feel a bit ripped-off.
If you don't have the first edition - buy this! the work is incredable, and i certainly found the examples useful and inspiring first time 'round.

5.0 out of 5 stars Design meets code, 27 April 2002
This review is from: Flash Math Creativity (Paperback)
When using flash from a desing point of view its often hard to get by with out using any actionscript, in fact often impossable. While this book is by no means an introduction to actionscript or programing it offers an excellent set of examples on how actionscript can be be used to create cool and eye catching graphics which will get your flash creations remembered. The book is designed for people who already know some actionscript and puts your knowledge to good use by showing things that you might only think could be done in a high end 3d package. For example 3d text, 3d bounceing balls, dot grids and even a 3d ploter. If you think you might find this book a bit hard, as I thought, then if you understand how basic for loops work and know about duplicateMoiveClip with different properties, like _x, _yscale, _alpha, then you'll be fine, the rest is quite easy to follow. Make know mistake however if you are looking for something on other areas of actionscript (like xml) becuase this book focuses on design and "how cool" something looks! Great book.
