Multimedia software

You use multimedia software to create animations, presentations, and other multimedia elements on your site. If you plan to work with video, you need video editing software. What follows isn't a complete list of all the software available, but it can give you some ideas of where to start.

Macromedia Flash

Flash (shown in Figure 1-6 ) is the industry standard for creating multimedia interfaces, animations, games, and other multimedia elements for Web pages and CDs. Flash features a design environment where you can create graphics, a timeline for making animations, and a scripting language (called ActionScript) that allows developers to create applications or interfaces for applications. For information about incorporating Flash elements into Web pages, see Book V.
