|Web developers are getting revved up about Macromedia’s Flash MX. Will your students be ready to shift gears to take advantage of this exciting all-in-one multimedia application platform? This DVD-ROM includes everything they’ll need to start working with Flash MX right away.
Flash MX Basics leads off with About Flash, video commentary by Flash designers, instructors, and students about what that dynamic Flash technology can do. Flash and graphic designers describe what it’s like to work in a multimedia design team, too.
The heart of Flash MX Basics is its hands-on lesson chapters: a dozen detailed how-to exercises containing text, audio narration, screenshots, and video that run within the actual Flash MX software. (For those who don’t already own Flash MX, a full-featured 30-day trial version is included.) These lesson chapters cover creating and modifying content, importing files, using symbols, working with layers, animation, interactivity with buttons, sound and video, ActionScript, tips and strategies, and publishing to the Web, CD-ROMs, and hard drives.
Also included are a selection of empowering video clips from the GirlGeeks.com archive. They spotlight women working in the tech sector who explore the impact of women on computing.
Additional features include 12 scorable multiple-choice tests, an 87-page printable PDF version of the lesson chapters, a practice project involving a fictitious Web site called H.E.R. Yoga, troubleshooting tips, a glossary, a list of Flash MX Web resources, and even a group of yoga-based exercises that can be done at the desk, because de-stressing at work is crucial to optimal creative performance.
A computer with a DVD-ROM drive is required to access all of the video and interactive content described above. However, the video content can also be viewed on a DVD player.
