New AS3 Tutorial: Asynchronous ActionScript Execution

Posted September 21, 2009 by senocular

It's been a while, but I've finally added a new tutorial. This one covers what could essentially be threading in AS3 - taking synchronous operations and breaking them up to be executed in segments over multiple frames, primarily for the purpose of preventing player lockup (allowing rendering while processing).
Source files are available in Flash CS4 format, but all ActionScript is externalized so even if you're using Flex, you won't be completely left out.
