Flash8 is, erm, great
If you're into film and video, then the new version of Flash should be whetting your appetite too. The ability to make use of alpha channels in video will change the way Flash looks forever, creating a seamless and more attractive user experience at no cost to the interaction elements. With us being interactive designers and all, use of ActionScript in Flash is pretty much unavoidable. Hats off to Macromedia then for the addition of ScriptAssist, a tool that makes the use of ActionScript less of a headache for those of us who consider it some kind of dark art. Also included in the new package is FlashLite, opening up the world of mobile content to regular Flash users.
