With its high-impact design and low-bandwidth requirements, Macromedia Flash has become the industry standard for hundreds of thousands of Web developers worldwide. With the release of version 5, Flash continues to evolve past its origins as an animation tool. With its new, incredibly powerful scripting engine, as well as its ability to tie in with application servers and XML, it has become a development platform in its own right. ActionScript is the scripting language used to control animation and multimedia within Flash. Macromedia Flash ActionScripting: Advanced Training from the Source shows readers how to translate real-world applications using Flash into scripts that they can use and modify as their understanding of Flash programming expands. Users will learn many methodologies and techniques for putting Flash projects together, enabling them to work faster and more efficiently. Projects include games, wireless applications, Web interfaces, and more.
