Very Brief Flash Intro

Flash is an extremely flexible tool that has perhaps been most commonly used and associated with the creation of graphic and content rich-websites. Flash was previously Macromedia branded and now comes under the Adobe brand umbrella. It is a program that allows for a mix of point and click graphical tools, similar to graphic applications (e.g. Photoshop) and a code based interface in the form of Actionscript. In recent years the use of Flash for multimedia based websites has boomed, perhaps partly due to the wide-spread take up of broadband Internet and faster home computers. For me one of the most interesting features of Flash is that it can be used to create scalable content for a great variety of devices and platforms. Everything from interactive informational kiosks to mobile phones have utilised Flash. I intend to use Flash for my project as it should enable me to produce menu that will be both visually attractive and provide easy access to the variety of content on offer within my DVD.
