I've said it countless times that I want to do flash animation but I've never had the modivation nore the ideas to launch anything good. However. I've recently (as of november 2005) got myself a job at a portrate studio and I want to make flash animation about some of the things that happen there (and yes, lots of them are funny). However, I don't know what to use or where to begin. I've had a friend show me a little bit of how to do it but his parents got him the flash studio. I'm not gonna pay 1000 bucks for one so anyone have any sugestions, tips, how to's or what not that can help me out?

There are less legal ways of getting Flash, but if you do choose to use one of those then I would ask that if you do ever make money from your animations then you get a real copy, which is what I did.

Flash comes with some quite good tutorials in the help files. That was how I originally learnt to use it. After that there are tutorials here:


Although they will generally be for specific things.

If you want a brilliant grounding in using Flash then the best, fastest, and most memorable way of learning everything that you'll need to know is from the Foundation Flash books, published by Friends of ED, and usually written by Sham Bhangal. They really are utterly superb and I only wish that they were around when I was first learning to use it! Have a search for it on Amazon (boxes at the bottom of the page smile.gif ).
