Hopefully, this'll prove useful in understanding the interface (GUI, whatever you want to call it) of Macromedia Flash 8.

I kept it short and to the point..

Outdated and Useless

You know there's a CS4 now, right? This is quite useless to most people. Experienced authors won't need this tutorial, and beginners won't buy Flash 8, because there have been two new versions since then.

I guess I should comment on the actual tutorial, now. Why did you have those useless rollovers (for images)? On the slides you used them, there was plenty of space for the picture.

And in some of your sections, you could have been a little more thorough. For example, "The Toolbar". You didn't explain ANY of the tools! You also didn't explain the publish settings, at all. You should have explained what "Load Order", "Generate Size Report", "JPEG Quality", etc. all mean.

For a tutorial, this really sucked.

Not too great.

Text, Try using voices for tutorials, much nicer to listen than to read.
Unncessary Rollovers, That confused me why you had to do that.
Flash 8 is way old, Adobe has already finished CS4.
You used complicating terms, newcomers to flash will be confused even when they see what GUI ancronym.
I say it is better than some, but not as good as it could be.

I understand where you're coming from.
But I'm not that good with voiceovers, to be honest.
It seems nowadays Flash 8 would be the bare minimum to any flash, so it appeared a good start, seeing as that is what I currently have.

And I'll try stepping down my vocabulary, thanks for the review.

It's decently helpful for someone new. Not the most in depth thing I've seen, but if that's what you're looking for, it'll help out.
