So you think you've got to grips with the new features of Macromedia Flash MX? Welcome to this inspirations upgrade from friends of ED. Upgrade your thinking, upgrade your attitude, and upgrade your standards to take on board the host of exciting features incorporated into the latest version of Flash. With this title we run the gamut of new features, from the Drawing API ("to die for"), through new Video compression, Scriptable Masks and Components. We explore the new territory with Experimental Interfaces, check out the improvements in the 3D arena, and quarry the backend technologies to see what gems we can turn up! Some of the best designers in the Web community have concentrated their efforts on this project. This has resulted in the highest caliber of work, including an exclusive insight into the creation of Jim Armstrong's New York Flash Film Festival Final piece. From the acclaimed team that brought you Flash Math Creativity comes this inspiring volume, full of brand new effects and discussion on what Flash MX is going to do for designers -- and where we go from here.
Book Info Provides the competent Flash user the means to become an advanced user in terms of creativity, and also the ability to become an advanced MX user by working with the new tools.
