Teach Yourself Adobe LiveMotion in 24 Hours is an easy introduction to Adobe's exciting new graphics product that allows Web site designers to create fast-loading, vector-based animation while remaining in the familiar, integrated Adobe environment. The book was designed to serve as a Web designer's first introduction to LiveMotion, and to guide readers through the process of creating everything from simple animations to entire Web sites in LiveMotion. The book's author, Molly E. Holzschlag, has a unique perspective on LiveMotion. She has been watching the product's development since the earliest alpha stages, and with her extensive experience conducting her popular Web design and development training sessions, she knows exactly what kinds of techniques beginning users need to learn, and what types of questions they typically have about products like LiveMotion.
