Flash/Actionscript - worth learning to use alongside Articulate?
How beneficial do you think it is to use these as part of "customising" your end product within Articulate?
Have taken a look at Flash over the years but never really actually dabbled with it. I'm guessing this is the "tool" that most people would use to build custom SWFs and interactions etc? Or do you need a degree of AS expertise to really build on this and make the whole thing more "powerful"?
And what about the XML side of things? I've heard of people saying they write engines in AS and then use XML to populate stuff really quickly.
Just thinking about how handy it would be to build custom menus/objects/slides/interactions that allow for rapid development in Articulate. Haven't done any coding since I was at school, but I reckon with time and practice (and the right incentives) I could get my head around it.
What do you guys make of it?
