Flash MX adds content and animation to Web pages. Flash MX movies use vector graphics to reduce size and download time. Movies can be “streamed” into a Web browser, which means they can begin playing before they are fully downloaded.

Flash MX adds content and animation to Web pages

  • Flash MX movies use vector graphics to reduce size and download time.

  • Movies can be “streamed” into a Web browser, which means they can begin playing before they are fully downloaded.

  • Flash MX movies can include interactivity to allow the viewer to enter input, including two-way messaging.

Introducing Macromedia Flash MX – Lesson 1


Flash mx supports vector and raster images

Flash MX supports vector and raster images

  • Although Flash MX is vector-oriented, it does provide support for raster images as well.

  • Vector images consist of lines and curves and descriptions of their properties.

    • They are usually smaller than raster images, download faster, and scale better.

  • Raster images are created by mapping the placement and color of each individual pixel.

    • These are also called bitmap images.

    • They are usually larger than vector images and tend to distort or lose quality when scaled to a large magnification.

Scaling a raster versus a vector image

Scaling a raster versus a vector image

At standard size, a raster image and a vector image may appear identical. However, when scaled up to a larger size, the vector image will maintain a smooth edge while the edge of the raster image becomes very jagged.

Flash mx file formats

Flash MX file formats

  • Flash MX is primarily vector-based and can open images from other vector-based graphic programs, such as Fireworks.

  • It can also support several raster image types, including:

    • BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, PICT, PNT and TIFF.

  • Files saved from Flash MX are saved in FLA format.

  • Files saved in FLA file format can be used to create stand-alone movies, HTML files, and SWF files.

Create stand alone movies

Create stand-alone movies

You do not need the Flash Player installed to view movies on your desktop. Flash movies can be converted into ”projectors,” which are stand-alone executable files.

This Windows desktop shows two icons. One is for a standard Flash MX FLA movie file. The other is for a Flash MX movie that has been turned into a projector.
