Add a Flash File

Macromedia Flash and Director have arguably become the standards for Web animation. Director, originally created for CD-ROM based interactive programs, has a streamed Web version called Shockwave. Flash is a more recent arrival, becoming extremely popular for creating small, interactive Web based animation. The interactive functionality of Flash is limited compared to Director but Flash is very popular because of its vector-based graphics, a graphical format that is small and scalable.

Tip

Another streamed interactive format available from Macromedia is the Authorware Web Player. The Authorware software program is used to make highly interactive training. The Authorware Web Player object is not installed with Dreamweaver but you can download the object from the Macromedia Web site.

You can get more information on the Authorware Web Player object on the Macromedia Web site at: http://www.macromedia.com/support/dreamweaverattain/how/experts/AWObject/AWObject.html.
