Yes, Keith Peters has written the best book on doing animation in ActionScript 3.0.

Foundation Actionscript 3.0 Animation: Making Things Move!

Now a days I am spending my free time in designing the website for It is a joint venture between my wife and my sister-in-law. At first we decided to use only html, css and some javascript framework for the site. The designs we came up with were also very compelling .

But sooner we found that we are taking the wrong decision by avoiding Flash altogether. Because the kind of idea we want to convey is much better presented in Flash only, though it requires some animating skills in AS. I know AS3.0 and Flex very well, still that’s not enough. So while searching for a book that would guide me in animation I found this book with some great reviews. I have just gone through some initial chapters and I have this feeling that I am a damn good ActionScript animator (is there such a thing!). What I liked the best in the book is the approach of attacking the problems using few mathematical concepts.

In fact this book can change the way you view and use ActionScript because a lot of Flex and RIA war has taken away some of the sweetness that Flash is famous for from your mind. I certainly believe currently ActionScript 3 is the most expressive language for visual medium and Keith Peters is one of the star makers.

Thanks Keith for writing the book.
