5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book on Flash CS5, August 3, 2010
This review is from: Flash CS5: The Missing Manual (Paperback)
With the lastest version of Flash (version CS5), there are lots of new features such as improved easing, animation, better 3D drawing, more templates, IK bones, etc.

This book is for beginners to Flash as well as existing Flash designers who want to update their skills to the lastest version of Flash CS5. The 'Missing Manual' books have always been great in my opinion and really teach readers the topics properly with excellent explanations no matter what the topic (CSS, JavaScript, etc.). This book is no different, the author Chris Grover does a great job in explaining the new features of Flash and the existing ones. There is also a great number of chapters on the basics of ActionScript 3.0 which covers topics such as syntax, events, objects, animation, etc.

The book goes through topics such as:

Chapter 1: Getting the basics
Chapter 2: Creating simple drawings
Chapter 3: Animate your art
Chapter 4: Organizing frames and layers
Chapter 5: Advanced drawing and coloring
Chapter 6: Formatting text
Chapter 7: Resuable flash: Symbols
Chapter 8: Advanced Tweens
Chapter 9: Animation and IK Bones
Chapter 10: Non-flash media files
Chapter 11: Sound and Video
Chapter 12-18: ActionScript 3.0

All the examples are easy to follow and fun as well. A great teaching tool!
