One thing we see very often in the community are users wanting to know where to get started with the process of learning Flash Pro. We recently added a new learning guide to the Dev Center, which I’ll link to below. I’d also like to point out a few other quality tutorials that are great for new users.
The Flash Pro 5-Step Learning Guide provides a nice step by step approach to getting up to speed with Flash that not only tells you where to start, but also where to go second, third, fourth, etc. Following these suggestions should provide you with a nice route through the forest of Flash learning content out there.
Here are 2 good videos and a tutorial that are great places to start also:
- Identifying the elements of the Flash workspace – This video provides a nice introduction to the various parts of the Flash IU.
- Introducing Flash Professional – This video has a nice overview of Flash’s workflow basics, including using the workspace, creating and importing artwork, using symbols and the Timeline, and publishing SWF from your FLA files.
- Creating your first Flash professional document – This tutorial is very popular and takes you all the way through your first project in Flash.
