Hi. I'm a 20-year print pro. My expertise is InD, Illustrator, Photoshop. I've always avoided web, but I just lost my bread and butter account and need to get a web portfolio up quickly. Simple opening page, black background, name and simple animation consisting of brief flashes of bitmap images. This points to a scrolling portfolio on next page. Portfolio would consist of my print layouts, scroll-over before/after examples of my fashion retouching, and a large portfolio of my vector illustrations.
I'm broke need to do it myself. And I need to do it using CS3. Can't afford to upgrade to CS4 presently.
I have a brain and I'm not afraid to get into stuff like action script, but I really need to cut to the quick and not waste time searching through online tutorials that go in directions I don't need to go in.
Based on my needs, can someone point me to some good tutorials and/or sources of info?
Thanks in Advance,

Ignore the reference to CS4 in it... the links are applicable to Flash in general. It should give you some places to look for the types of things you might want to incorporate/learn.
