Hi, I am totally new to flash. I have Sothink SWF Quicker.

I have put forth a little effort and haven't really gotten anywhere. The online tutorials all suck. They for the most part teach you how to make cool flash effects and stuff as if you already know the basics. I don't know ANY of it.

I tried to do some tutorials but even the most basic (like learning the interface) always have a stumbling block. They don't explain or show how to do each step. They will say Step 1: start a new scene or something but I don't know how to do that... that is why I am there in the first place.

Anyway I basically need an hour to sit down with someone that already knows this... face to face OR a really good book. But I can't find any books written for "sothink SWF Quicker". I have heard the interfaces are very similar so would another book written for the standard flash program serve my purpose?

Any help or suggestions welcome.
