    • INTRODUCTION TO MACROMEDIA FLASH
      Lesson 1
    • WHAT IS MACROMEDIA FLASH?
      • Macromedia Flash, an animation software, is most often used for Web sites.
      • Interactive “movies”
      • Vector Graphics
    • HISTORY OF MACROMEDIA FLASH

      • In mid-summer of 1995 FutureWave received a lot of feedback. (SmartSketch).
      • He began working on SmartSketch.

      • John Warnock at Adobe (October 1995).
      • Adobe declined the software. In December of 1995, the company was almost sold to Fractal Design.
      • In the summer of 1996, the FutureSplash Animator software was shipped.

    • Bitmap Graphics
      • Bitmap graphics describe images using colored dots called pixels.
      • Bitmap (raster) images
      • Represents image as a matrix of pixels
      • Common Web graphics; e.g, GIF and JPG
      • Three major disadvantages with bitmaps
      • Stretching may cause pixilation (distortion)
      • As image size grows, file size grows
      • Web image reproduced pixel by pixel
      • Bitmaps preferred for high resolution
      • Example: photographs
    • Vector Graphics
      • Vector graphics describe images using lines and curves, which also include color and position properties.
      • Advantages of vectors
      Small size
      Scalability
      Allows for advanced editing
      • File Format
      CGM (Computer Graphics Metafile) is a file format for 2D vector graphics.
      SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)
    • Why Macromedia Flash?
      • Rich Internet Applications for the web and devices, ranging from data-input interfaces to full- blown applications
      • E-learning content such as help systems; instructional presentations; and testing, scoring, and reporting systems
      • Product prototypes and demonstrations that simulate real-world hardware and software Presentations such as marketing/sales overviews and product demonstrations that distinguish themselves and offer greater interaction with the user
      • Entire websites based in Macromedia Flash that offer rich, immersive web experiences
      • Narrative stories and games with compelling interactivity and rich visuals
