Flash Pro is under continued development, and many of the features that have been added will help animators. It won't take you years to learn how to use it.
Thanks for the encouraging input!
I'm hoping it won't take years to learn, that was a slight exaggeration... but from experience after 3+ years of learning the other applications, photoshop, premiere, after effects, illustrator etc... I still feel like I'm only scratching the surface! Haha.
hey daniel, Ive been using adobe products going on 17 years now and I still feel like Im learning new stuff every week. Once you learn the in and outs of the products they all are relateable, the harder part being learning how to understand AS3 (its daunting IMO from where it first began back when Macromedia had it). Keep pushing, watch tutorials and ask questions.
Hey Rezun8, appreciate that encouragement! I will definitely take your advice. Yes it seems almost impossible to master an application unless you focus solely on that application for quiet a considerable amount of time, and then stay on top of it... they are just so deep with so many layers it's easy to feel overwhelmed ... but I am slowly learning just to enjoy the opportunity to learn new things and have fun creating for clients and personal projects...
