Q&A

Q1: I'm working with people who have HTML experience, and we're including Flash within some very sophisticated HTML pages. Is it necessary for the HTML people to make customized templates for this project?
A1: No. It's probably not worth creating a template unless you plan to use it a lot. You can simply export an .swf file and send it to your HTML people, and they can embed it into the Web pages. You could even send them a sample HTML file that Flash's Publish feature created so they can dissect it. Quite often, the HTML will be worked out long before the Flash portion is done. The Flash movie you're making could already have a space waiting in a larger Web page. Instead of using Publish (which could overwrite an HTML file), you can just use File, Export Movie and export the .swf file. Even faster, if you've set your publish settings for Flash the way you want, you can just run Test Movie, and an .swf file will be exported.
Q2:Now that I know how to publish, I now know everything about Flash, right?
A2: Not quite. I think it's fair to say you have the foundation skills to use Flash effectively, but as you learned last hour, you've only really learned how to learn Flash. This book isn't exhaustive, though you're probably exhausted. You now need to go out and get your hands dirty. You can revisit this book if necessary, but this is the point where you start your Flash career, not end it.
