What version of Actionscript should you learn?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

This actually comes up from time to time .. so here is the answer:

 

1. Actionscript 2 is used in older versions of Flash. It is easier to learn but is limited when compared to AS3.

2. Actionscript 3 came out with the Flash CS4 release ... it is totally OO and strongly-typed. This basically means that you have to understand programming much more thoroughly and the Actionscript itself is much more verbose ... but it runs faster.

 

Conclusion:

 

If you are using a pre Flash CS4 version, then AS2 is the answer. If you want to take full advantage of Flash though, you will need to learn AS3.
