"CS4 is a disaster"1.0 starson by flushflashfish
Pros: I've been a professional flash animator since Flash 4 days thru Flash 8. Had to upgrade to deal with work situation. For an animator who draws and is not interested in phony bone stuff there is NO improvement in CS4. It is a dog.
Cons: 1) Work elements cannot be locked in place. Mine shifts out of wack almost everytime I save or save as!
2) Flash CS4 cannot render usable quicktime movies. Useless for youtube, etc.
3) Many tools fail to work accurately compared to earlier versions.
Summary: Adobe has totally missed the boat. By attempting to ball things to all types of users they have ruined a solid animation platform. This is bloatware of the worst kind. I am very disappointed.
