Chapter 6. Publishing > Versatile Formats

Versatile Formats

When you're publishing in Flash, you have the option to create multiple formats. The default publishing settings include SWF and HTML documents. The SWF document, which is short for Shockwave Flash (or Small Web Format if you are a Web history buff), is viewable in the Macromedia Flash Player. The HTML document that accompanies the SWF document is set up with OBJECT and EMBED tags that embed the SWF document into the HTML document. We'll talk more about this later in the chapter.

Flash is highly versatile. It not only publishes to its own format (SWF) but will also publish to the following “alternative” formats: GIF, JPEG, PNG, and QuickTime. The first three formats are graphic formats. If you have created artwork in Flash on a frame or group of frames, you can export it to be viewable as an image online or for use in other applications.
