WHAT IS MACROMEDIA GENERATOR?

Generator is a server-side tool that dynamically creates data-driven graphics. Aside from Flash movies, Generator can also dynamically create GIFs (both animated and static), JPEGs, PNGs, QuickTime movies, and both Macintosh and PC Flash executables. It can be used for numerous tasks, but its main roles are to:

  • Dynamically create data-driven Flash movies (or other media). Data can be retrieved from just about any source, including text files, URLs, middleware, and databases.

  • Reduce file maintenance by enabling the automation of Flash dynamic content updates.

  • Speed Flash content development through the use of reusable templates and objects that allow the creation of complex Flash elements such as charts, tickers, and tables.
