Lesson 1. Introducing ActionScript > Why Learn ActionScript?

Why Learn ActionScript?

Today, if you're a Flash developer, one thing is certain: animation skills, no matter how phenomenal, are no longer enough. A firm grasp of ActionScript is essential because without it, only the most elementary interactivity is possible. By acquiring an in-depth knowledge of ActionScript, you can:

  • Provide a personalized user experience

  • Achieve greater control over movie clips and their properties

  • Animate elements in your movie programmatically—that is, without using the timeline

  • Get data in and out of Flash to create forms, chat programs, and more

  • Create dynamic projects that respond to the passage of time or the current date

  • Dynamically control sound volume and panning

  • Do much more
