QuickStart! - Adobe Flash Catalyst CS5 Tutorial

Adobe Flash Catalyst CS5 is a versatile user interface design tool that allows designers to very quickly assemble complete website and application interfaces without having to write any programming code. Designers can build interfaces from scratch within Catalyst or import design files from external applications such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator with complete compatibility. In this course, author Rick Martin first takes you through the tools and features of Catalyst to familiarize you with the application and then completes two projects to give you some hands-on experience. By the end of the course, you will be comfortable using Catalyst for a variety of real-world applications. To begin learning today, simply click on the movie links below.
