Macromedia is currently a red-hot topic in the web development community. Macromedia estimates that over 3 million computer browsers now have the Flash player - that's roughly 80% of web browsers - and in addition, Macromedia has an aggressive and open licensing policy which guarantees that millions more Flash-ready browsers are installed worldwide. The guide's "how to do everything" format simplifies this complicated product and additional content from the book, and images for the book's tutorials will be posted on their website. This product enables web and interface designers with little or no programming knowledge to create fully interactive and fast loading website elements such as buttons, menu, animation and interfaces. The book covers everything from building rollovers, to adding motion, colour and sound to text, to creating interactive drop-down menus, to building animation sequences.
