Macromedia has been working hard to ensure there will be a steady stream of information available to developers when Studio 8 drops, and here at gskinner.com we’ve been working hard to help them. We’re writing a series of DevNet articles, which will be released over the next couple months, on some of the hottest new features in Flash 8 Professional.
The first three, which should be released over the course of the next month include: an exploration of my varicose-g experiment in Flash 8; a beginners guide to preparing and importing video with alpha channels using After Effects and Flash 8; and a look at binary numbers, hex numbers, bitwise operators and color values. We’re planning to follow those up with a few more great articles on important Flash 8 topics.
Keep an eye out for them and a ton of other great content on the Macromedia DevNet. We’ll also post here as each article is released, along with other tips and code.
Here’s a look at varicose-gv8 (which you might recognize from a MM keynote). The latest Flash 8 player is required.
