As a professional Flash developer, nobody knows more about Flash MX 2004 than you or at least they better not! To make sure they don't, you need this task-based guide. By applying the popular Visual QuickStart format--easy, step-by-step instructions and loads of visual aids--to more complex topics, this guide offers the quickest, easiest way to get up to speed on the advanced Flash features that can make or break a project. You'll find straight-ahead, concise explanations of all the animation, navigation, and interactivity techniques you'll need to master to create dynamic Web sites with Flash. You'll also find complete coverage of all that's new in Flash MX 2004: essential ActionScript 2.0 commands and standards, expanded support for rich media, a streamlined user interface, and more. By emphasizing methodology and problem solving over features inventories and long, techie discussions, this guide teaches Flash the way you use it--dynamically, interactively, and to get a job done!


Updates & Corrections

Chapter 6: The file was missing for the example file for the Movie Clip Loader class. It has been put back in place, and the example file should work correctly now. In line 4 of the ActionScript for this file:

mcLoader.loadClip("", loader_mc);

The file at the specified URL (bigMovie.swf) is loaded into the movie clip called loader_mc. You can replace this URL with any SWF movie.
