Adobe Animate CC Classroom in a Book (2017 release)
The 10 project-based lessons in this text show students how to create engaging interactive content with Flash Professional CC (2014 Release). Using step-by-step instructions with projects that build on the knowledge gained in each lesson, students learn the key elements of the Flash interface, including panels, timelines, and frames. From there, students learn how to work with graphics, create and edit symbols, modify text, add interactivity with ActionScript, and incorporate animation and sound into their projects. They also learn how to prepare and export their finished projects for publishing.
Instructor Notes for this title will be available soon on the Pearson Higher Ed site.
