View Full Version : help with animation

12-01-2005, 05:59 PM
I'm new to web site design!
I've got to grips with basic layout, rollovers etc. I now need to animate the page as it opens and insert a flash enter page. I would like the photos to be animated as if being scanned. Can anyone point me in the right direction? (do I need to use a layer to insert the flash file?) Are there any good sites or tutorials on using flash with dreamweaver? I've looked for info on the web but I can't find any help!
I'm using Dreamweaver MX.

For flash stuff you cannot go past http://www.flashkit.com ('http://www.flashkit.com')
In DW on the insert tool option there is one for objects, just place the cursor where you want the object and then use the insert object from the menu and select flash, then navigate to where your swf file is. Make sure the swf file is inside your site location, if not make sure you say yes to copy it as if you do not you will get a link to the swf file like //file/blah/blah/file.swf and we know that will not work once uploaded to the net as //file is a local file. Just be aware of that.
