AS2 to AS3 tutorial? 2010-05-22 00:31:54 Reply

I decided it was finally time to rid myself of AS2, so I have just upgraded to CS5 from MX 2004 (maybe I can set some sort of record for biggest upgrade). Does anyone know of any tutorials that specifically teach AS3 coming from AS2? I have a feeling that if I try to learn it from scratch, I'll pick up all sorts of bad habits that originated from AS2.

I just used my knowledge of AS2 and Google to help me make the move from AS2 to AS3. I started off just by translating one of my previous projects, not sure if this is the best way but i found it really easy.

(e.g. I used an enterframe event in my AS2 project so i just googled 'as3 enterframe' and looked at how people did it and modified my code).

I advise that as a reference. I found it to be very helpful in my transitioning.

yeah, I tried that too, didn't work out for me.
