I'm almost done with the CS5 flash pro with Andy being the instructor. As I was looking to see what I can learn from Photoshop Cs5 upon 3D rendering, I was suprised to see Andy again. That's cool! Andy is a Kick A** instructor.  Glad to have ANDY instruct this cource as well.  This is my promotional course on these softwares but I know I'm not going to get it all down with in a month lol. I'll be subscribing. Great job on how Andy shows the ropes.
