This course is for Flash designers who have some experience with Flash design and would like to learn basic and intermediate ActionScript. Adobe Flash ActionScript provides experienced Adobe Flash CS3 designers with the knowledge and hands-on practice they need to create dynamically generated event-driven animation and interactive games with Adobe Flash CS3. The course teaches fundamental programming techniques. It begins by introducing core concepts including instance names, variables, functions, properties, and methods; then proceeds through conditions, loops, event handling, and animating with Adobe Flash ActionScript.

Whilst there is no certification attached to this course our tutor is a certified Adobe Trainer.


To gain the most from this class you should already have: Experience creating Flash designs and animation using the timeline Equivalent knowledge from Flash Level 2 course


With this training course, you can use Flash, the industry's most advanced authoring environment to create interactive websites, digital experiences and mobile content.
