Chapter 33. Multimedia Packages > Exploring Flash in Detail

Exploring Flash in Detail

Flash was originally a compact animation tool called FutureSplash that was later modified to include sound. With intense support from Microsoft, Macromedia Flash was quickly included as a native part of Internet Explorer. At the time of this writing, Flash is in its 4.0 incarnation, with a lot of interface and publishing improvements. Flash will soon be released in its next version, 5.0, but I will focus mostly on 4.0 here. Be sure to visit Macromedia (http://www.macromedia.com) for updates and upgrades.

What's especially interesting about Flash is that it is a vector-based drawing tool, much like Illustrator or Macromedia Freehand, but with the sole purpose of creating Web content.
