I' m a Graphic Designer working with mostly print, and some
web and a tiny bit of flash. Recently I've become the "Director"
guy at my place of employment. I'm going to be using it for
creating applications for touch screen displays for kiosks and
such. I have never used the program before, and the 4" thick book
given to me looks quite daunting!
I guess what I need to know is what is the best way for me to
start learning the basics of this program? i know I can do it, i
just need to make sure I learn the correct and most efficient way
of doing things. When I was younger i taught myself some Macromedia
Flash. The things I taught myself worked, but they weren't the
"correct" way of doing things, which led to problems whe nmoving to
more advanced features. Thanks for any help!
They finish tuts 1 to 13 in 4 weeks (3 hr class / week). So,
give those a go. After
completeing the tutorials you should know the basics of
Director. Then, the best
way to learn more is to start creating applications with it.
I do have more advanced tutorials plus my resources page
gives links to all the
Director sites arounds. But, start with the basic ones and
hopefully you'll be on
the right track to develop your knowledge. And, you can
always ask questions.
