Flash Masterclass Training

What is Flash Masterclass Training?

Adobe Flash Masterclass is the industry standard for delivering rich graphic content over the web incorporating animation, sound and user interactivity.

Flash has evolved to satisfy the need for web designers to create ever more complex and visually engaging content whilst maintaining an efficient and effective download capability.

This One day website design training course will introduce delegates to the main features in Flash including vector graphics, interactivity, animation, video and publishing Flash movies into an HTML page.

We also provide private and in-company Flash courses. Call +44 (0)1273 622272 to discuss.

HTML5 and CSS3 are starting to be supported by more browsers. Because these technologies - (along with other interactive scripting languages like JavaScript and jQuery) - allow web designers to create interactive vector animations and support video without plugins, some argue that Flash is dying.

Whilst Flash use is certainly changing (you don't see many navigation elements designed in Flash now, because of iOS's lack of support), it is an exaggeration to say that Flash has died.

At present, HTML5 and CSS3 cannot provide anywhere near the level of interactivity possible with flash - there is no Audio & Video control (beyond simple triggering) and no motion tweening.

Flash has evolved over the years to changing demands, and will continue to do so for some time yet.

Silicon Beach Training recommends that all delegates familiarise themselves with the Flash interface before attending.
