Web Graphics/Multimedia and Web Page Design Courses


INTERMEDIATE FLASH CS6

Take your Adobe Flash skills to the next level to create more sophisticated and powerful Flash applications.

You'll start by examining the ever-versatile Movie Clip symbol, using it to create Flash content—animations and special effects—inside other Flash content. Then you'll dive deep into ActionScript so you can to turn your simple SWFs into epic Flash masterpieces. For example, you'll learn how to write a single script that controls hundreds, even thousands, of objects based on user input.

You'll also learn the advanced ActionScript techniques you'll need to take control of the user's cursor and how to extend Flash's capabilities with external ActionScript Class files. External ActionScript files also allow you to use the same scripts across multiple SWFs, as well as create SWFs that load and interact with other SWFs—the secret to creating in-depth, multifaceted Flash applications.

But this course is not just about programming. You'll also learn high-end Motion Editor skills for creating sophisticated transitions and other animated effects. We'll delve deep into advanced Bone tool features that make your IK bones appear more life-like, as well as the Deco tool, Spray Brush tool, Layer Masks, Onion Skins, and other advanced techniques for creating professional-grade graphics and animations.

No intermediate Flash course would be complete without lessons on using ActionScript for developing user-interactive courses, surveys, and quizzes—scripts that make decisions, count and keep track of user choices, and then tally up and report the results. In this course you'll learn to compose ActionScripts indispensible to creating these kinds of sophisticated applications.

You'll also see how to incorporate all types of content from external applications, such as graphics editors and word processors. We'll try out Edge Animate, Adobe's new no-scripting HTML5-, CSS3-, and JavaScript-based utility for creating user interfaces and animations. We'll wrap up with an examination of Adobe AIR, which allows you to create full-blown desktop applications that install and interact with computer operating systems just like traditional computer programs.

In each lesson, you'll find practical, hands-on activities that allow you to practice the skills you're learning. When you finish this course, you'll know more than enough to confidently market yourself as a Flash designer.
