Web Graphics/Multimedia and Web Page Design Courses


INTRODUCTION TO FLASH CS6

Flash has grown beyond its best known application, Web pages. Nowadays, Flash movies appear everywhere—the Internet, mobile devices, the cinema, TV shows and commercials, computer games. Using Flash, you can create a wide variety of file formats, including apps (iOS and Android), HTML5, and video that work on virtually any device.

In this course, you'll learn how to create animation, interactive movies, and mobile apps in Flash CS6 and develop several full-blown Flash applications. We'll start by reviewing the Flash workspace, creating text and graphics, and animating objects on the Flash stage. Then, we'll look in detail at the anatomy of a Flash movie—how to use the Flash timeline, layers and frames to control objects, and timing on the stage.

While creating your first Flash movie, you'll learn how to format and embed external digital media and how to make them appear or play at specific times. We'll also look at controlling digital media based on specific events, such as end user mouse clicks.

No course on Flash is complete without an introduction to ActionScript, Flash's powerful programming language. We'll get our hands dirty, creating interactive buttons with ActionScript 3.0. You'll also learn to write scripts that control movie flow, and scripts that call to and load external videos, Web pages, and other Flash movie files.

As we create our movie, we'll go over creating and animating 3-D objects, syncing sounds with animations, and publishing your Flash movies to the Internet and to mobile apps. By the end of the course, you'll understand the fundamentals of Flash and be ready to master more advanced Flash topics.
