Hi I am an experienced AS3 developer working on a Mac, been working in the CS4 IDE and using Textmate for html, PHP etc. I am very keen to use Flash Builder IDE to build my AS3 projects. I have been able to create actionscript projects but when I try to incorporate FLA and the library assets in FLAs I get stuck.The way I want to work is to use CS4 for creating graphics, timeline animation, so when I run the project it compiles the fla and scripts as if I was in CS4 ide.
So my question: Is there any good tutorials or sites that can guide me thru setting up an Actionscript project in Flash Builder and manipulation of stage, timeline and library assets from an FLA?
Firstly flashbuilder doesn't use a timeline, it can use assets in a CS4 compiled flash file, but knows nothing about the fla format. A good starting point would probably be to down load the tour deflex which has a lot of flex examples with the source.
there is also the cookbook page
this is a great site for resources when you run into problems
Adobe also have a lot of video tutorials which are great to get an idea of just how Builder works.
