I am BRAND new to Flash/ActionScript, coming from a Web development (Perl/CGI) background. My boss is enchanted by the NY Times Audio Slide Shows (see examples on this page
) and wants to do something similar with our content.
I took a look at their stuff and it is a Flash setup, so I downloaded an eval of MM Flash MX Pro and I am not sure where to begin. I'm not really interested in the graphics aspect of it, but really the technical guts of what's going on behind the scenes.
Is something like that one whole document? Or would that be a Scenes/Presentation type of structure?
I've been through a lot of the help docs and tutorials, but where I'm getting stuck is how to get the big picture of how such a project would be organized (and hopefully extended to other pieces of content easily). If anyone has pointers to a good book (or site), I'd appreciate it.
Thanks In Advance!
