The course starts out with an introduction to the software, followed by a tour of the interface. Once you know your way around the numerous panels and menus, you'll start to learn the drawing modes and tools that allow you to create vector and raster images to animate.
Each lesson gives you plenty of instruction to learn, then plenty of time to practice. All students are encouraged to take their time and become comfortable with each aspect of Flash that is taught before moving on to frame-by-frame Animations. By the time you finish the course, you can use the Flash software as easily.
