Flash Catalyst enables designers to increase their creative productivity and leverage their existing skills to create a stand-alone Flex application. It also facilitates collaborating in a team when creating Flex applications. Designers can create their graphics using Adobe Photoshop CS4, Illustrator CS4, or Adobe Fireworks CS4, and then convert these graphics into a Flex application by importing the native files into Catalyst, while keeping the layers intact. Catalyst acts as a bridge between Flex Builder and CS4.
This is all great, but as a developer you shouldn’t wait for designers to adopt to Catalyst and you can leverage Catalyst today.
In this presentation, I would like to talk about integration and workflow between Flash Catalyst and Flex working with Catalyst as a developer tool.
