Adding Flash Files

Macromedia Flash has arguably become the standard for web animation. Macro media Director, originally created for CD-ROM–based interactive programs, also has a streaming web player called Shockwave. Flash is extremely popular for creating small, interactive, web-based animations. Flash is popular because of its vector-based graphics—a graphics format that is small and scalable. Flash is fairly easy to learn and is a fun tool to create in. It has a scripting language, ActionScript, that is very similar to JavaScript, a popular scripting language for web pages.
