Hour 24. Publishing Your Creation > Deciding Which Media Types to Publish

Deciding Which Media Types to Publish

Comparing the different media types available in the Publish Settings dialog box's Formats tab is really a case of comparing apples to oranges. You can export a JPG image or you can export a QuickTime movie. The former is a static image, and the latter is a digital video. This encompasses quite a range of options, making a comparison difficult. The only two media types comparable to GIF are JPG and PNG because they are both static image types. Therefore, instead of comparing the media types, each will be covered individually.

Flash (.swf)

This is the format you'll likely choose every time. It's the reason why you're reading this book—to make scalable vector animations that play well over the Internet. If there's one disadvantage to using this option, it would be the fact that a few potential users don't have the required (but free) Flash Player.
