Guys and Gals I thought I would start the first thread in our new flash section. Fact is that I am ignorant of creating custom flash. If it were not for the Web Graphics Creator, Flash Ad Creator, and etc then I would not even be capable of fooling with it. I downloaded the Adobe Flash demo once and trying toying with it a lot but did not ever really make any great progress.. Not only could I not create anything really I could also not even edit an existing flash file correctly at all. I like a splash of flash here and there as long as its not over done. I want to learn how to do custom flash but I think its all the lingo that throws me off.. Flash has its own lingo language that is not relevant to others.. PHP, html, dhtml, javascrip, css, etc all relate one way or another so they were all fairly easy for me to learn pretty well and manipulate them the way I liked. Shy of typing in "learn flash today" and clicking on the #1 result I wanted to know what helped some of you really grasp how to do flash? What are some good starting points.. Should I just buy a flash program and then just practice doing tutorials on the web? Looking for some guidance from some who know a bit about it.. Thanks.
