Chapter 16. Working with Visual Tools > Flying Objects in Adobe GoLive

Flying Objects in Adobe GoLive

Adobe GoLive is a professional-level tool for creating Web sites. One of its many features is the ability to create animations using Cascading Style Sheet Positioning (CSS-P). This sort of thing is a good use for a visual tool, because the JavaScript needed to move graphic objects around on layers can be quite complex (for more about CSS-P, see Chapter 11). Adobe GoLive is available in both Macintosh and Windows versions. For more about Adobe GoLive, we recommend Real World Adobe GoLive 5, by Jeff Carlson and Glenn Fleishman, also from Peachpit Press.

The example of CSS-P animation here is the splash screen for a sporting goods site called Adventure Tools. The splash screen is the snazzy "foyer" to your Web site that ushers the Web surfer in to the opening page, so this is a great place to employ animation. To create the animation, you'll need to use many of GoLive's Editors and Palettes ( Figure 16.10 ).
