Lesson 2. Working with Graphics > Adding Flash Animations

Adding Flash Animations

You can add Flash animations to your document as easily as you can add an image, provided that the animation already exists. You can resize animations by dragging the handles. You cannot create animations directly within Dreamweaver.

In travel_log.html, position the insertion point below the Flash button.

If the insertion point is not centered, click Center in the property inspector.

The insertion point is centered on the page. The next object you add to the page will be centered.

In the Assets panel, click the Flash button in the left column.

The Flash assets appear in the panel. The Site and Favorites lists for Flash assets work the same way as they do for image assets. You can use the same techniques to manage and organize Flash files as you do to manage and organize images.

In the Favorites list, select surfAd, and then click Insert.

The Flash animation is placed on the page.

In the property inspector, choose Loop and Autoplay. Click Play to view the animation in Dreamweaver.

To view animation files in Dreamweaver, you must click Play. Click Stop when you are done testing.

Save the file and preview it in the browser.

Autoplay causes the Flash animation to begin playing as soon as the page is loaded into the browser. The animation plays repeatedly because the Loop property was set in Dreamweaver.
