I've been working with an older version of Director and would
like very much to learn Flash. I'm feeling very much like a fish
out of water. In Director, manipulating script was a simple as
right-clicking on a cast member or accessing the menu. How is it
done in Flash MX 2004 (is it done in MX)?
Can anyone recomend a good comprehensive source I can
probably pick up at B&N? There's too much I have to learn - I'd
wind up wasting a good deal of time in these forums.
Picking up any of Colin Moock's
http://www.moock.org books would be
a good start especially as a reference to Actionscript. Read the AS
- Getting Started in the Flash help. It will tell you how to code
etc. It is significantly different than director but with a little
reading you should be able to get right out and do what you need.
You may find though that you're still going to want to do things
with Director simply because Flash (at least MX 04) is unable to
meet your project needs. It simply depends on what you were doing
with Director and where you want to end up with Flash.
