So I decided to teach myself adobe flash so that I can make an animation of a "how it woks" for my landing page and website. I want to create a quick 30 second video animation with voice over explaining the business concept. I have seen this on other sites and it is very effective and getting across your concept. It very professional because it very tricky (as I am learning) to do this. I am not a designer but I have the "I can do anything" attitude.
So I went online and found Lynda.com, which has video tutorials that teach the entire adobe CS5 suite. P.S. I have downloaded the 30 day free trial to use. Lynda.com gives you unlimited access to all there tutorials for a monthly fee. I recommend getting the option that gives you the exercise files so that you can open the exact same thing that they are doing in the video on your computer in which ever application you are trying to learn. I learned this the hard way and ended up going back and buying the option with the files. Much easier to learn now.
I'll let you know how it goes.
