So I discovered that FlashDevelop 3 is in beta, with the ability to build AS3/Flash9 and Flex 2 projects.
I rebuilt my previous flash progress in a day, and have moved a little beyond where I was. I also learned that flv files blow chunks. Seriously, the animation in my site was taking up 60% of the processor in flash, and 90% of the processor in flex.
I dumped the flv, and am going to a static image—which looks better, but isn’t as fun.
Anyway, showing progress, and learning Flex.
