The Flash MX 2004 to Captivate Connection

If you are an experienced Flash developer, you know there is a lot that you can do to add to the Captivate experience. As long as you stay within the parameters of the Flash Player 6—no ActionScript 2.0 and no streaming video, for example—moving Captivate movies to another level of interactivity through the addition of Flash animations to your Captivate movies is now an option.

If you are a RoboDemo or Captivate developer with little or no experience with Flash you can still use Flash to add a little zip to your Captivate movies. The easiest way of getting going with Flash, without having to really know Flash, is through the use of a feature new to Flash MX 2004—Timeline Effects. Though Flash developers tend to regard this feature with more than a little disdain, it wasn't added to the application to please them. Timeline Effects were designed to give the new Flash user an opportunity to add special effects to his or her movie without having to know how to code using ActionScript.
