This course introduces the basic elements and features of Flash Professional CS6 so that students can begin creating Flash applications for delivery on the Web. Students will learn how to use the Stage and the Library, create and format text, work with basic shapes, work with layers, and use the Timeline. They will learn how to format objects by using custom colors and gradients and by applying filters and soft edges. Next, students will create frame-by-frame, motion tween, and movie clip animations. Students will also work with interactive components such as buttons and audio controls. Finally, students will learn about accessibility options for Flash content, test the download performance of a Flash file, and publish a Flash file.
