    How much can you do with Adobe Flash? Questions about Adobe.

    I guess I'm talking about either Macromedia Flash 8 or Flash CS4. How much can be done with both? And which version is more widely used?

    The most up to date version is probably the most widely used. And given you have the knowledge, pretty much anything you can think of can be done in it.

    Flash 8 doesn't have Actionscript 3, Flash CS3+ does. Other than that, not much. Not sure which is more widely used, probably both.

    CS3 and CS4 are the most used versions, mostly because they have AS3 built in. CS5 is coming soon but unless you plan to develop for the iPhone its best to stick with CS3 or CS4.

    Is it worth the price or more than worth it?

    It's very useful...I even use it for projects in school. Of course, some of it requires skill...but I mean what program doesn't. There's a lot you can do with Actionscript, but learning it isn't that easy. Animating is ok...but that really depends on your skill and how willing you are to learn.

    I would buy it... But I'm still far away from getting the program.

    Precisely. Which is why I'm far from getting it.

    You might be able to get a student discount http://www.academicsuperstore.com/products/Adobe/Flash
    I was lucky and got my copy as a gift. I think Adobe.com runs student discounts aswell.
