    I'm trying to learn how to do some very basic stuff in Flash, but it's quite hard to figure out. I kinda get Photoshop and Illustrator, but this thing throws me for a loop. All I want to do is have a stinkin' banner ad that has a neat transition between two pictures and set it on a timer. Yet this is like open-heart surgery in Flash.

    So I wanted to see if you guys (and gals) knew a good place to find such help. I'm learning this on my own, so it's not like I have taken a class on it. I thought it would be much easier, but there's a lot of useless old information on the Net for old Flash versions.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Layers Magazine isn't specifically flash, but their podcasts are great;


    You can look for the podcasts which deal with Flash stuff and also look at the tutorials on their site.

    That looks like exactly what I need. I'm going to mess around with it this weekend. It looks like there's a lot I can do once I just figure out a few basics, but those basics aren't similar to anything I've used before.
