Chapter 26. Flash and Shockwave > Creating Flash Movies

26.3. Creating Flash Movies

Full-featured Flash movies are best created using Macromedia's Flash software. Obviously, it is beyond the scope of this book to teach the ins and outs of Flash authoring, so I recommend using the tutorials that come with the software as well as support documents provided by Macromedia (http://www.macromedia.com/support/flash/). For an incredibly thorough book of tutorials and reference material, check out Flash 5 Bible by Robert Reinhardt and Jon Warren Lentz (Hungry Minds, 2001).

26.3.1. File Formats

The Flash authoring tool saves information about a movie in a .fla source file (also called a "Flash document" or "Flash editor document"). The .fla file contains all the separate elements that make up the movie and its timeline information in a fully editable format.
