Introduction to Flash Animation CS5

Curriculum Published 7/23/10 Last updated on 5/3/19
Teaching “Flash Intro” to beginning animators for 10 years I have developed this curriculum that includes techniques and projects that develop essential Flash skills while providing a solid foundation for participants to continue working with Flash long after they complete the lessons and projects.

I have provided the curriculum, lesson plans, students samples and instructional videos to help you learn as you teach.

  • Animate

    Design interactive vector animations for multiple platforms.

I've used this great resource (videos) for the last few years, but the Web site is no longer active.

I was planning to use it today!! Please, can you make the intro to flash/moving car videos available again? Is there a new link?

Having just switched from Macromedia Flash 8 to the new Adobe Flash 5.5, I was in need of new, updated resources. These resources have given me a solid foundation to build upon. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Lynn

We have posted many resources for CS3, CS4, and CS5. If you search for "Flash CS3" (or any other product with its version) in quotes you will find resources. Here are some for you to start with:

Digital Design CS3: Digital Narratives with Flash CS3

Digital Design CS3: Enhancing User Experience with Adobe Flash CS3

Digital Design CS3: Building a client website

Adobe Flash CS3: The Flash workspace

Adobe Flash CS3: Symbols, instances, and the library

Adobe Flash CS3: Design Principles for Flash documents

And here a helpful one from member Mike Skocko:

CS3 Video Tutorials

Hope this helps get you started and you find other CS3 resources as we have them for most products. Let us know if you need any more help finding what you need.

You can use the same resource for CS3 just exclude some of the new tools that are in CS5. All else is the same.

Excellent!! Do you have anything for CS3? I am afraid that will be all we can afford for our students for awhile.

Thanks so much for creating these resources! I am teaching animation in the Fall for the first time in several years. This is a great find to help me and my students.
