    Learning to Animate in Macromedia Flash MX


    The tutorial for Learning to Animate in Macromedia Flash MX is one of the
    best I've ever tried. I have been working with Flash for a while but have
    found animating text not very intuitive. This tutorial is dense with information:
    layers, Breaking Apart, graphic symbols, shape and motion tweens, shape hints,
    etc. It's also very easy to follow. The information is readable, well-illustrated
    and contains all the necessary information for someone who, like me, is not
    yet an expert. (Note: There does seem to be a small error in the second paragraph
    of the "Create a Shape Tween Animation." It says "Repeat these steps for
    keyframes 24 and 36 in the "Shape Animation" layer." I think it should be
    keyframes 12 and 24.) Thanks for an extremely useful tutorial.

    Lynn,

    Thank you for your feedback. I've enjoyed the series, too, and am gratified
    to hear from a happy reader. We've commissioned a series of 10 Flash
    tutorial from that author and I hope you find them all as useful.

    (The error your reported I thought had been fixed. I'll have to look into it
    once more. Thanks again.)
