Notes on this weeks Fireworks Jam Session

This week we did a demo of the new Fireworks skinning extension that works with Flex 3 Beta. When I updated the button skin, the image didnt update in Flex 3 and threw me off. This happened because when I defined the project, a folder called “src” was automatically created and I was working out of a different folder after I defined the project, bah! I should have been working out of this folder to begin with..well now I know…

I’m soo diggin the new Adobe Media Player in labs! Being able to create one Fireworks PNG that contains all the various assets for skinning the player is fan-tabulous. We would have been using Frames or multiple documents in Fw8 or below. Pages in CS3 give us the ability to create Pages in the same document with various sizes, yah!

Also we demo’d fireworkszone.com’s Distrifusion, go check it out when you get a chance.

For those of you that are attending the Fireworks Jam Sessions, I want to say thanks! This really helps me burst out of my internal bubble and be one with the community and learn things together with you all. :)
