THANK YOU FOR TUTORIAL!
Thank you for the great tutorial. It is nice that you started from the basic staff and that you use mac. The best part though, in my opinion, is that you switched to the bigger size of the screen. It is actually the first video podcast (and I saw many) that I can see what the person is doing in the program. Thanks again. Pawell
Every other Flash or Dreamweaver tutorial I've seen is based in PC or an older version and therefore has some minor differences that have just left me confused. Finally a Mac Based tutorial! The only thing I would suggest is possibly trying to get a higher quality video so that it's easier to follow. Thanks!
Much appreciation for this generous sharing of knowledge.
