Flash is the animation and video standard for the Web.
To put it simply, if you want to create interactive animations or deliver audio and video content on a web site, you want to use Flash.
We've put together a collection of beginners Flash video tutorials that are practical, to the point and easy to understand. We don't believe in trying to cover every nook-and-crany of Flash, instead we focus of the key things so that we can quickly get you building great Flash movies quickly.
Flash has grown way beyond being a simple animation software. Flash has become the platform of choice for delivering web based software - something that Java Applets once promised but never delivered. With the release of Flash CS3 and the new ultra powerful (and fast) Flash virtual machine (that uses the new Actionscript 3.0), you can now build incredible software easily with Flash.
