I'm a 3rd year Multimedia Student. I enjoy using Flash for web design. I have been trying to learn actionscript 3.0 but find it very boring and hard to follow. My question to you professionals is how essential is it for a designer? I see some job adverts that want all the design software knowledge and the coding such as CSS, Actionscript, XHTML. Is this how it is? I've been lead to believe by my uni that studios have designers and developers so there is no need to know both.
