    AS3 Coding and Flash IDE General Query

    Hi everbody,

    i've started to learn AS 3.0 coding using FlashDevelop using a very good book that was recommended by a few people in this forum called, Learning Actionsctip 3.0 A Beginners Guide, and want to become proficient or atleast become the best i can be at is so i can for example create simple(to start of with) games and and websites BUT only use Flash IDE to create my graphics and not really depend on it for things such as tweening. Althouh, if i were to learn tween i don't think it would be too difficult but would probably be the last thing i would want to learn.


    I want to ask you fellow AS 3.0 gurus if you think it would be wise for me to know and learn the Flash IDE program e.g doing tweening and timeline stuff inorder for me to develop applications like games or websites ect?

    I would be greatful if somebody who was in my shoes could perhaps share their experience so i could get a good grasp if i am going in the wrong direction.

    Thanks

    Strictly speaking, you don't 'need' the IDE...you can compile everything from the command line or through FlashBuilder (aka flex)...If you're more comfortable in code that's fine.

    As a designer-turned-developer, I spent a number of years just doing timeline animation and in-frame code (this was AS1 - don't judge me!)...from that, I have a much deeper understanding of how things go together and work in the display list when I develop in AS3. So I guess my advice is - try working from every angle...you don't need to do serious development on the timeline, but I guarantee you'll discover some interesting things along the way.
