Hour 9. Adding Multimedia Files > Adding Flash Files

Adding Flash Files

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 player 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 when compared with Director, but Flash is popular because of its vector-based graphics—a graphical format that is small and scalable.

Another streamed interactive authoring tool available from Macromedia is the Authorware Web Player. Authorware is used to make highly interactive training applications. The Authorware Web Player object is not installed with Dreamweaver, but you can download the object from the Macromedia Exchange at www.macromedia.com/exchange/dreamweaver/.
