The only reason I bought CS3 was because I had Flash 8 Basic, and not professional. Thus, the 199 dollar upgrade was well worth it.
Anyways, the upcoming version look fine. Bones will be a fine addition for possibly making things more organized. Motion paths are...I guess ok. I don't use them much though. I'm skeptical about not having keyframes anymore. I guess I'd be fine with that if you could choose between keyframes or no keyframes in your flash document, like how you can choose between AS 2.0 or 3.0 in CS3.
Wait, rendering now in this? Correct me if I'm wrong, but does that mean that you don't have to use the Test movie option to see Videos or Movie clips playing in this new version? Isn't that a common problem to newcomer flash users? It was to me. This could be very convenient, and a big time saver.
What I really want is more Photoshop features. Like more filters, or patterns, or layer styles. Those could really save the time importing things from Photoshop into flash.
