I've been fooling around with Flash animations also.Even got so far as being able to add sound!I'm a little embarassed to say that most of my animations are of a cat meowing.Anyway I haven't a clue regarding how to attach a "movie" to an email or even to have it uploaded to this forum. What I'd love do do is make some of those Flash cards like you get on the Hallmark site,for example,to send to friends.

Need many more hours in the day!!

Any MAC users see this virtual cat? I downloaded the latest version of Flash as per above, and still see gibberish. I have noticed this phenomenon on occasion at other places. Can Flash be written JUST for a particular platform? I thought the appeal was rather like that of the PDF filetype, in that it tended to bridge the gap between platform peculiarity (not to mention jpeg resolution vs. vector!)

Paullete - to be able to send your animations to people or upload them for viewing on the web, you need to export them to .SWF format. you can do this by clicking on File> Export Movie when you have the flash file open then select .swf (ShockWave Flash) and save it. then you can either email it to people and as long as they have the flash player, they can view it. as for here in the forum, it would have to be small enough to put in a zip file, or you'd have to upload it to some webspace and put up a link to it.

Phil - Flash uses "Actionscript" for programming, and I thought it was cross platform too, so I'm not sure whats happening there.

If anyone is interested in Flash animations, here's some tutorials. I don't know how good they are, since I don't know anything (yet) about working with Flash, but their PShop tutorials are good, so hoped these would be also.

platscha -- on you on a MAC or a PC? We're trying to figure out why most can see it, but some cannot. I'm sorry -- it's cute! We'll figure out a solution hopefully. :

hmm, that is strange, hard to say whats going wrong. could possibly be a bug in the scripting if it works for some people but not others with the same flash player.

David, Blacknight, and Platscha -- would you take a look at this alternate download page (linked from the link page above) - it lists different downloads for MACs, AOL users, Netscape, etc.
Maybe the solution is here?
