    Practice & Experiment

    The only way you will get good at Flash is by practicing the tutorial included with the program and on web sites like this one (and maybe Virtual-FX), and experimenting with the wide variety of possibilties out there using this awesome tool for design and development.

    Take some time to look at web sites using Flash.

    A teacher once told me the best authors alsway work from an outline. Make some sketches as to how you want your site to look and how a visitor will navigate your site.

    Have a great Flash day

    Smile Flash Video

    Just to let you know macromedia puts out a video on learning Flash I bought it and learned a lot, I usually learn best from seing something done . it's a good video. I think you can order it on macromedia's site http://www.macromedia.com the cost is $24.95 and worth every penny.

    resolved outlines and sketches

    Ditto on the outlines and sketches Greg.
    I was in Architecture school for 2 1/2 years, and then changed majors to Advertising, where i am pretty much concentrating on web design and development, as well as graphics. There is very little I ever did or do that does not involve many quick sketches (parti or thumbnail sketches). They let you see how shapes fit very quickly, your pencil just sketches what your mind sees. The best advice I could ever give anyone starting out with Flash or any graphics/web design software: Don't be afraid to draw by hand, and don't let the computer be the only thing you use when creating new ideas. I have pages printed up at work and at home with about 16 squares on each page, for each frame of a flash file. Using this, I can lay out the basic flow and order of a movie, and have room to write notes and such. Try this out, it will definatly keep your mind in order. And once you get used to thinking and designing like this, it will be second nature to you.

    Good Luck XOcutie! Flash is great!
