Seminar 3. Creating a Movie > Macromedia Flash and Millions of Colors

Macromedia Flash and Millions of Colors

Typically, Web development has focused on using a Web-safe color palette composed of the 216 Web-safe colors, which are created to appear the same in any browser or on any computer platform. For example, if a design calls for the integration of buttons or images on a background seamlessly, the designer will most likely use a Web-safe color in both elements; otherwise, the design might not appear as intended—depending on the end user’s browser or computer platform.

Flash offers functionality for avoiding the Web-safe color issue because it enables you to create a Web site with all the elements contained on the Stage—your design is completely intact. The movie then is compressed as a SWF file. The Stage elements become one, integrated with all the functionality and interactivity in your movie. The need to match colors between images and areas is not an issue, unless you are integrating the SWF file into an HTML page. Then you would use a Web-safe color for the background color of the movie.
