WIP: ActionScript 3 w/ Flash CS3 Tutorial

Posted May 01, 2007 by senocular

It's a work in progress, but I fear it will take too long to finish to make it completely worth while to people struggling with ActionScript 3 in Flash CS3 now. So what I'm going to do is keep it online and add to it a little each day: Getting Started with ActionScript 3.0 in Adobe Flash CS3.
It may be a little long-winded, but I was hoping people making the jump from AS1 or with little ActionScript experience would be able to make sense of it as well. There may also be a lot of reorganization in the end - what goes where, what is covered, and if I should really jump into class examples that quick? (I'm actually currently writing content in the middle of what's available there now.) Those kinds of things, but I usually don't iron them out until near completion (if at all).

Right now it mostly just covers variables, functions, and does some explaining about the differences between AVM1 and AVM2 and their connection with the timeline.
