Swishmax is pretty cool if you don't want to delve right into how it all works; http://www.swishzone.com/index.php

Adobe has also gotten the hint that Flash professional is incredibly cumbersome for the untrained. I'm thinking you have CS5 or am I wrong? Anyway, with CS5 they've produced 'Flash Catalyst' in response to all the simplified flash software out there for sale. It's much easier to use than Flash Pro and does all the wicked stuff and more that one sees with Swish and others...

John, your right...CS5 it is. Thanks for the direction. I will look them up. Is there any large stock flash sites. I have found a few, but they re either small sites or look more like somthing I could do (that's usually the free ones though lol).

I missed getting their accordion builder for free by 5 days (!) from the following link.

Flash to date (or as yet) is not to be outdone in terms of performance, but the price of course is the clock. I have a 35MB download speed & STILL see that d*** clock. Amongst the lucky genius's who keep popping out ever faster code the current rage is JQuery, and javascript keeps improving also. These two have my attention and although the pile of opensource grows literally daily, there are always performance bugs to contend with that the use of professional software such as above negates. I'm using the Likno and find it very intuitive in the learning curve, plus it loads everything for you and even updates relevant files automatically, i.e you tell it where to go & it loads it into the page div. Pretty cool. I recommend it....

Did you check activeden? http://activeden.net/
While you're there you should also check the other marketplaces from Envato such as graphicriver or codecanyon. Quality stuff for a few bucks!
