Good points about Flash
Flash animations have reasonably small file sizes,
so larger and more complex animations can be put online
and downloaded reasonably quickly. They
can also have limited interactivity built into them,
which is popular for online games and special effects
points about Flash (Lets be honest here)
The biggest problem with Flash is that it can make sites hard to look
at. Some sites have just 'gone crazy' using Flash. Because Flash has
a relatively small individual file size for an animation, some sites
have over used Flash animations and are just enormous.
a result - they take forever to download.
then there are sites that make you sit through an unwanted Flash animation
for a minute or two before you can even access anything on their site.
there are the sites that just use the animations everywhere, until
you start to feel a little seasick from seeing the whole page move
all the time...
short, few and smaller is best.
simply Flash is a tool Like any other tool, say a screwdriver for
example, it’s effectiveness is only as good
as the skill, intelligence and know-how of it’s
user, as well as the appropriateness of the task to
which it is set. If, for instance, you needed to drive
a nail into a wall, you could use a screwdriver in
a number of ways, and it may work just fine. However,
using a hammer, who’s primary task is driving
nails into things, would probably be a better option.
Any carpenter knows this. The same goes with Flash.
