Season’s Greetings 2006

Yeah, Come On
For the last month I’ve been teaching myself how to use Flash for a project at work and decided to put together a little Christmas card (click here to see it) to send out to my friends.

Understanding how to use Flash has been a real challenge, the ultimate marriage of timeline-based apps (like Premiere, FinalCut, etc), illustration apps (like Adobe Illustrator) and programming language (Flash’s own “ActionScript” language). It’s damned difficult to figure out where to start and if you don’t have a foundation in any of those apps then it’ll be doubly difficult for you to get going.

Once again I highly recommend the QuickStart Visual Guide and the QuickStart Visual Pro Guide to get up and running.

Oh, and set aside a month or two because it’s going to take some time!
