This complete training program from Adobe Press and video2brain combines over 18 hours of exceptional video training with a full-color 120-page guide Authors Kelly McCathran and Kevin Ruse show you how to use essential Flash commands and tools to create animations and design interactive Web pages using rich media.
• Creating effective workspaces
• Importing and modifying vector and bitmap artwork
• Creating interactivity with ActionScript
• Working with motion tweens
• Integrating sound and video
• Testing and publishing your Flash project
The video lessons are wrapped in a unique interface that lets you jump to any topic and bookmark individual sections for later review. Full Screen mode provides a hi-def, immersive experience, and Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window so you can play the videos alongside Adobe Flash Professional CS5.
As with all titles in the Learn by Video series, project files used in the lessons are included so you can practice what you’ve learned, and interactive review questions help reinforce freshly gained knowledge. The 120-page guide included with the course provides supplemental material to enhance the video training. Selected videos are also provided ready to be downloaded for viewing on your iPhone, iPod, or other compatible mobile device.
This Adobe-approved title is structured around the objectives of the “Rich Media Communication Using Adobe Flash CS5” exam at the Adobe Certified Associate level.

I pretty much went through every book on the market, whether in be the 'Visual Guide' series or the ones from Adobe or anything in between. I mean literally close to probably 20 or 30 books in that timespan. I even use videos by [...] and other. Trust me, you name, I have bought to try for my class. But always I find I need to use more than 1 book/video series to have my students buy that would cover everything I wanted them to know. Usually I ended up writing up a few lessons to supplement the material as well.
But, I can honestly say, I found the most complete learning tool for Flash.
This video DVD, combines multiple video series from [...], plus material from multiple books and puts it into one learning tool. I am guessing the DVD framework was created with Adobe Air, because the interface looks fantastic (nothing I ever have seen before). There are seperate menus for videos all broken down into multiple sub categories, there are review questions and quizes and review material. I really can't say enough good things about this DVD, other than if you buy anything else you are wasting your money.
There is also a Dreamweaver and Photoshop DVD that I purchased that is equally impressive as well.
A must and only buy if you want to learn or help teach Flash CS5
When I first recieved the product, all I had to do was insert the CD it came with, flip open the back cover of the box, and peel off the book. That was it! I was ready to learn in only seconds.
The book and videos work in conjunction with each other, but you can read or watch either one in your own time and still understand all of what's to offer. The best part is the videos comes with subtitles, so if you're unable to listen to it, you can still understand what's going on.
Both the book and video tutorials teach the basics all the way up to the more advanced things Flash has to offer. It will teach you how to get started, use the tools, create and import artwork, create text, work with tweens, use action scripting, importing and editing video/audio, and finally how to test and publish all you've made.
In addition to both medias, there are many visualizations you will experience to really get you into what you are doing (yes, there are even picture examples with colors in the book). Almost all basics are covered and more, so you'll be really willing and able to learn all that you can for whatever you plan to create with Adobe Flash Professional CS5.
In conclusion, after using this product, you'll have an incredibly easy time getting started with Adobe Flash Professional CS5. It comes with an easy to use CD, and a book, which both explain what you need to do to get started in creating almost whatever you want.
It is structured in an easy to follow manner. It is very detailed and goes over most situations that can/will occur when using Flash CS5. It covers the very basics and this might be off-putting to people with experience using MS Windows.
The presentation voices are modulated and interesting. They are personable and the viewer gets an, "in classroom," feel which improved the effectiveness of the lessons for me. Some people learn better by working along with the instructor. This video course provides the necessary files to do this and complete the tutorial as it is watched. The narrator leaves plenty of time for this.
For those who learn best by listening and watching the pace of presentation designed for working along with the presentation it will seem to move slowly.
The supplemental material is a good reference for after you have completed the video lesson. The video creates a foundation of basic skills needed and the reference reinforces the lesson. The materials are a good reference to use while one is using the program.
All in all I found this lesson to be a useful introduction to using Flash CS5. This course helped me to learn skills that I can use in web development. For people like myself who learn better, especially at the begining in with a presentation format this provides a faster route to getting foundation skills to build upon with reference texts.
