Hollywood 2D Digital Animation: The New Flash Production Revolution by Sandro Corsaro and Clifford J. Parrott
Has anyone read this? Is it good? It looks promising, but I can't really get a feel for a book just by reading the table of contents on Amazon. And it's hard finding a review that isn't just copied from the Amazon website (I've read all 4 already).
A little of my background that may help answer my question. I'm somewhat new to Flash, but I know how to do the basics and learn new software extremely quickly (ie. I don't need a book that takes me through the basics of Flash that are covered in the tutorials that ship with it). I also have a degree in animation, work in the field, and own a large collection of books on the subject (ie. I don't need a book that spends most of it's time explaining basics like squash and stretch). And I could really care less about streaming it on the web (ie. I don't need a bunch of chapters about optimizing and front loaders).
Basically, I'm looking for a book that looks at Flash as a broadcast animation tool and hopefully explains in some detail an actual 2d production (and some advanced 2d techniques) using it. Is this it?
