06-10-2003, 01:41 AM
Hi, i have just started using flash (I have been using it for a while, but only now am i really getting into it)
I was just wondering when i should start giving actionscript a go, and where the best resorses are? (apart from here)
Also on this site, if i read all the tutorials, will that be a good start?.
im ok at flash, but am still a newbi, I can do tweening, masks, make buttons, and now basic animated drop down menu's
yea i know not much, but i really want to get good at this, and books i have looked through, don't really do much for the cause.

also im not a mathmatition (hmm see i cant even spell it heh)
is this a major downsite to actionscript?

Thank you in advance.

The newbi.

The best place that I found to start with ActionScript was with the O'Reilly ActionScript for MX book (can't remember the name of it right now). It's an excellent source for everything you could ever want to know about actionscript.

Good luck!!

any programming background always help....
I started flash a few years ago but it wasnt until I learnt java in grade 12 of HS that I really got into AS....

now i mainly do everything in CS...all the motion tweening and stuff..more dynamic pages...

If you do have programming background....picking up AS should b a piece of cake
