Bringing back the bells and whistles
I went on an official Macromedia Flash “Rich Media Design” course presented by Symbiosis last Thursday and Friday. I rarely use Flash these days but in the instances I do (interactive learning objects for the OU) I tend to blunder about until things work. It kind of reminds me of working in Front Page Pro back in 1996. So I thought a little structured, formal training would do me good. My god how Flash has changed in the last few years.
To be honest I gave up with Action Scripting a few years back when I came across a web developer who could make all my design do the singing and dancing thing. All I’d say was “hey, Steven, do your magic with this”, bung my movie his way and marvel at the results. So it was quite nice to get a grip with the under-the-hood workings of Flash so I too could manipulate my web sites to make them interactive and fun to use.
