I'm just curious because I have a friend that has Flash MX, but prefers to use Swish because he says it's easier and doesn't want to really learn how to do anything in Flash MX. I feel he's cutting himself short by skipping on the learning experience that Flash MX offers. You don't know how many times I said forget Photoshop because I thought it was complicated to use... But little by little, I learned how to use Photoshop and I don't regret it.
Anyone have any opinions?
So, yeah-- I love Swish. I don't think I'm missing out. But then again, this is because I'm not looking for a high-end, super-duper, intense program. So it's perfect for me.
BTW, I don't think picking up Swish will make you lose out in learning Flash. Ironically, because of Swishscript, you will have to learn much of Actionscript and Flash principles, anyway (layers, levels, etc...). In fact, to really make good use of Swish, I think it's virtually impossible to do so without getting your hands dirty in learning some Flash principles and Actionscript.
