ActionScript 3: Advanced Scripting  (ADFL302)

Time: 9AM - 4PM Eastern Time (ET)
Duration: 2 Days


Now that you can get some user input, manage symbols, and generally manipulate your Flash movie using ActionScript, it's time to dive in. Learn how to create, duplicate and manipulate your own objects, draw and import artwork in real-time, work with sound objects and, essentially, do anything you can think of using ActionScript. We combine all the techniques from the introduction, and expand on them, to show you real-world applications of ActionScript in, well... action. Learn how to make stunning effects and build your own applications using dynamic content with your Flash movie as the front-end user interface. If you thought we built some cool stuff in the first course, you'll love what we do in this one!.
