I feel very dumb that I know absolutely nothing about flash. How exactly does it work? I was looking at the macromedia site and that wasnt helping and everything looked so expensive

anyways my questions are ...

What do I need to put flash videos on a site?

What would you need to make a flash site?

Yeah its real hard. Its like trying to make your own computer generated animated cartoon almost. Except way less in depth.

Very long tiem to learn, and its hard to learn. I only know maybe 5%. I know how to fade in and out and do a few different things.

You'd be better off making a rela movie with a camcorder, editing it on your computer, then putting it in flash and adding music and some Graphics and stuff.

Well, it depends what you want to do.

A simple flash movie is really easy to make, with either keyframing or step by step animation. (aka frame by frame)

I like to play around witht the actionscript package that comes with flash. You can do some really neat stuff.

are you trying to make a animation and put it on a site or just put one on that is already made.
i took a class in school on html flash css javascripting and actionscripting, its tough to learn and even after you can do it you cant even remember how to do it, i always have to go back to this http://www.sd58.bc.ca/schools/mss/department.htm the 1st 2 topics are whad youd be lookin for. 1st one is basic stuff 2nd is advanced, and im mad because i forgot the pword for it, im trying to make this pb feild editor but need to remember how to actionscript.

flash is fun. Its not too tough if you have someone who knows what they're doing and can help you out. Making a flash site is easy, all you need to know is basic actionscripting. A flash video is fun, and most of the time a simple task depending on what type of video you want to make. download the demo and try it. Iv been working with flash for a while, and it takes patience, and when your going to start something big, you need to plan out every bit of it.

no, because if you're using pirated version of flash as most of us do, making profit is not a good idea due to the fact that macromedia can sue you for every dime you make from it as well as for piracy of their software. Also the whole "Profit" thing is overused, the reason I choose not to use it.
