About this book

Introduction

Let's make movies! Interactive movies, totally integrated into your Flash interface! With Macromedia Flash MX you have the power to import digital video and sound, and manipulate them just like any other media object. That's a whole world of design possibilities.

This book hopes to take you through all you'll need to know about producing such wonderful sites. The first section will give you a thorough grounding in how best to import your video and sound into Flash and the many different ways that you can manipulate it once it's in there. Then, in the second section, we'll go through a complete real-world case study from pre-production on the video to final output on the web and CD-ROM. Finally, we'll see how you can apply use some advanced ActionScripting with video, and create a fully object-orientated sound and video playing Flash component that you'll be able to use time and time again.

The inclusion of video support is the most noticeable and exciting feature in Flash MX - viewers who have the tiny Flash plug-in installed can now see video material that would otherwise necessitate the lengthy downloads and clunky interfaces of other web video plug-ins. This book is the guide you need for this exciting new universe, offering inspiration and technical guidance in equal measures.

This book assumes no knowledge beyond an ability to work with Flash MX's interface, and is not intended for those with substantial digital video experience. As such, this book does not assume that the reader has access to expensive video-editing software. All you need for this book is access to Flash MX, and some imagination.
