Simple review on Adobe Flash Catalyst

my 4d project

Finally I finished my last 4D project, which is an interaction microsite based on my research of hybrid cars. I used illustrator and flash catalyst for this project.

I plot everything in illustrator and export it into flash catalyst. This new software in CS5 shocked me at first. I can edit components anytime I want, flash catalyst will link me to illustrator. This function is so helpful for designers to edit their work while they were working on the website. One thing I dont like about flash is the difficulties of create and edit artwork. I prefer creating designs in illustrator; it’s more handy.

Another thing about the catalyst is no programming. In flash designers need to deal with complicate programming languages and action scripts. Flash catalyst contained a friendly user interface and make programming become virtual.

Above all, flash catalyst is very easy to learn. It’s very useful for designers to do some simple micro sites or catalogs. I hope Adobe will take this software further, and I think the overall idea of flash catalyst is a good direction of future.
