Preorder “Foundation ActionScript 3.0 Animation: Making Things Move!”


Friends of Ed announced the release of Foundation ActionScript 3.0 Animation: Making Things Movie, the second edition of the excellent ActionScript Animation book written by Keith Peters. I started reading the first edition of the book a couple of months ago and instantly fell in love with it, but I had to stop reading it because of some other obligations. Keith nicely skims through the basics of ActionScript before explaining all the different techniques for making things move in Flash using various simple mathematical formulae. The book also covers the advanced event handling and the drawing API. Keith’s style in writing is simple and yet entertaining with loads of examples to go through. This new edition would cover all the topics of the first edition using ActionScript 3.0 this time while adding some extra techniques that take advantage of the new functionalities featured in ActionScript 3.0.

The book could be purchased in paperback or as an ebook from Friends of Ed’s website for $39.99, is taking preorders for the book in paperback for $26.39 without indicating when it will ship it, on the other hand sells it for £26.59 and ships it within 4 to 6 weeks.
