Device Central CS4 Essential Training: Flash Output, the Log, and the Script Editor window

By Dale Rankine

Device Central is a mobile device simulator and testing application that serves as the hub of mobile design and development in Creative Suite 4. It simulates the display, interface, and performance of hundreds of phones and other devices, and is kept up to date via an online database. Device Central is an indispensable tool for Flash Lite developers. It can also be used to preview designs, video, and HTML layouts from other CS4 applications, like Photoshop, After Effects, and Dreamweaver. In Device Central CS4 Essential Training, Dale Rankine takes an in-depth look at all of Device Central's features, from basic testing to scripted automation. He also offers insights into the mobile content industry as a whole. Dale explains what can be learned from the various testing and feedback panels, shows how to test content on actual devices, and more.

This video covers a few extra windows, including the flash output, (similar to the output window in Flash CS4) the log (the window launched from the emulator controls when you want to view snapshots), and the script editor window, where test scripts are written and managed.
