Creating a Web Site with Flash CS4: Visual QuickProject Guide


I think the functions they cover buttons, text, navigation, masking are often made with Flash, but if you are interested in making video clips or animations using the more artistic abilities of the program, this is not the book for you.

Reward Yourself

Flipping through the pages, I thought that this would be excellent resource for a web designer like me to learn how to start making websites in flash. It has great pictures, there's step by step instructions for many things, it seems to get right to the point, so I went and bought it. As I'm going through the book, it became frustrating to me that this book is very good at telling you WHAT to do, but very poor at telling you WHY you're doing it.

Due to the fact that the Flash program is quite complex, the book tries to cut corners by being short and just laying out "just do this", "don't do this", "click this", "select this", etc This is problematic because it doesn't give a me a better understanding of how to use Flash really.

I'm going through each of the chapters sometimes wondering, "What did I just do? But whatever it was, I did it" That's a good accomplishment for 3rd graders; not good for people who want to seriously learn the tools Flash offers to make great websites and beyond. The complexity of Flash CS4 calls for much more explanation and this book does not offer much of it. But do some research, I'm sure there are other better resources out there. This book is very frustrating and makes me not want to learn Flash; I bought it in hopes of learning Flash CS4 quickly instead I found myself confused a lot of the times.

You get to follow the book step by step but it doesn't tell you why you're doing all these steps. Also there are errors when testing the movie. The books is well laid out and covers most of the basics. Unfortunately, it didn't cover the things I was hoping to learn, but to be fair, the book wasn't designed for depth. See all 22 reviews.
