Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0766816958, Paperback)Written as a textbook for courses taught by the author, Graphics, Animation & Interactivity with Flash 4.0 is unlike most how-to manuals. It provides in-depth instruction to Flash 4 while successfully capturing the feeling of being in a classroom with a knowledgeable professor.
In addition to over 50 lessons on the CD-ROM, the book provides extensive background information about the Internet, the nature of images on the Web, animation in general, and the advantages inherent in Flash 4 as a vector-based--as opposed to pixel-based--method of delivering graphics.
The teaching is cumulative: read the book from beginning to end rather than hopping around. Like a good syllabus, each chapter begins with a list of objectives and ends with a summary and list of resources "for further study." Also on the CD-ROM are many sample Flash animations (banners, logos, and lots of Web sites) and demo versions of Macromedia software, including Flash 4 and a demo copy of Vecta 3D for making 3-D Flash animations.
This book will not help with quick fixes. But anyone willing to go through every lesson carefully will be rewarded with a firm grasp of this powerful application. --Angelynn Grant
