This tutorial will be covering all the basic and essential buttons, tools and key short cuts of Macromedia Flash CS3, Photoshop CS3, and 3DS Max 9.
This tutorial took so long to make, because there is so much information in here! Me, Spicebar and Sticknoob spent a lot of time working on this, so I hope it shows.
This is the first of many tutorials, so we thought that we should start off with the beginner tutorial.
There is so much beginner information in here that some experts might even learn a thing or to!
Although some stuff in the photoshop section got messed up, its all basically there, so sorry if that section is a tad disappointing.

This is my first submission in a long time, and I'm very proud of it, I just hope it helps someone out there at the least. Can't wait to read the reviews! -SickSith

... I Have Macromedia Flash Professional 8 ...
... But Is Good AnYwAy ...

Well done

Very beginner friendly, visual eye-candy was well done and I found the information useful.

My only gripe is that the music will reset everytime you go back, meaning I often just hear the same initial 30 seconds or so over and over again.... would have been great if it were possible to just simply have them going in the background, or a choice of them.

But nice work, 5/5 :)

Not what i thought it was but it was good

it was informative but not really a tutorial...it would have helped if you showed how to make one instead of individual buttons, poor choice of title dude :(


I found nothing interesting or new in this tutorial but it's covering basics as u said so it's not considered to be a bad thing. There should by back button (or maybe I'm just blind?) cuz going all the way back to the menu and clicking one more time Flash > Actions > * is quite unfortunate. I think that window frame should be bigger and text should be smaller because now it's all just with so small margins that it makes learning harder. Hmm... content of any of these programs that was explained in here is easy enough to understand it on your own. I think that there are better ways to learn applications (especially photoshop) for example just by pressing all the buttons on the toolbar and checking their usability. In my opinion the only way of learning such things is by fun and reading your text is no fun at all. However I don't want to rate something that can be useful to the others so overally it took some time to make it and everything seems pretty clean and sensible (besides this little space and too small margins).

The back button is there, its viewed like forums. But thanks for the input.

Impressive and informative.

Well,i learned a lot about this.But...

How do i make differences between a simple flash (that repeats itself) from a game (Click to do actions flash)?

I'm still a little confused.

Games will be covered in the next tutorial briefly.
