Sample text

Knowing this, it should not be surprising that Flashers and Flexers are going to be, by and large, fundamentally different developers—maybe not quite as different as Photoshop and ColdFusion developers are, but in many cases that wouldn’t be too far off. While Flash enables a wide breadth of possible experiences, Flex was designed from the ground up to build applications. The emergence of Flex will likely lead to a cleaner differentiation between coding and noncoding roles of the Flash Platform, with a big chunk of the coding moving into Flex.

Given the benefits of Flash 9, it was very easy to choose Flex as your authoring tool. But now that the Flash CS3 authoring tool is out and available, it is important to select the proper tool, or mix of tools, to create your Flash projects. So, the question is, since Flash enables the creation of such a wide variety of experiences, which are suited to Flex? I first heard of Flex in 2004. I had recently completed the IKEA PAX Wardrobe Configurator in Flash 7 (see Figure 1-6)—my first project I really felt had met the definition of this new term Macromedia was throwing around, Rich Internet Application.

This is, it is important to understand, separate from the question of whether or not these Flash developers will migrate to ActionScript 3. Flash, on the other hand, has a timeline. It has drawing tools—great ones. It makes it easy to design great experiences through a graphical, rather than code-driven, interface. It invites experimentation with, rather than forcing immersion into, ActionScript and the creation of dynamic experiences. And, of course, it is still the most economical animation option available.
