Standard Flash has been developed by company Macromedia in 1996. A basic purpose of the given technology - creation of high-quality interactive animation which it is possible to represent at rather small size of a total file. By means of Macromedia Flash the web-master has possibility to make the colourful animation prompts, certain which elements can; to react; on mouse movements, and also the minigames built in web-pages, the sounded animated clips and many other things. In other words, Macromedia Flash it is capable practically of everything that is accessible at application Java, and even it is more.
One of the basic differences Macromedia Flash from all other web-technologies existing nowadays is that, what is it the unique standard, allowing to work not only with a raster drawing, but also from the vector. Besides it the text is imported to Flash environment not as the raster image, namely as the text in which one symbol is coded by one byte of the information that is the serious weapon in struggle against excessive volume of resultants of files. It is important that in Flash there is a possibility of reproduction of music and sounds in format МРЗ.
For creation of the documents prepared according to the given standard, company Macromedia has let out special object-oriented circle of the developer in the form of standard 32-bit Microsoft application Windows. Thanks to it actually programming process by preparation of interactive elements Flash and animations is shown to a minimum: it is enough to user to create the new project in the convenient and friendly environment for what it is necessary to understand only principles of work of a software package and to be able to address with the mouse, - upon termination of work the program will build in the created objects document HTML automatically.
The special programming language a bit similar on Java is integrated into Flash environment, but more simple in studying. The program modules written with its help are imported to the document as applets and inserted into the necessary shot of animation where there should be a dynamic change of the image. By means of the special editor it is possible to write the small aaplet operating playing of a clip, to create the elements which are giving in to individual options by visitors of a site, to generate prompt with several variants of continuation. Ways of realisation of this possibility there is a set, but all the same to use all power of the built in language, it is necessary to have a certain experience in programming. The mechanism of technology Macromedia Flash is simple enough: the interactive elements generally prepared by the developer and animation turn to an interpreted code which is imported to page HTML. That the client browser could distinguish objects Flash, it is necessary to install on the computer of the user a special superstructure plug-in which carries name Macromedia Flash Player. This program extends free of charge firm-developer of the given technology. The user browser, facing the document in format Flash, as a rule, itself contacts the corresponding knot then begins occupancy and installation Flash Player in an automatic mode. Player Flash is already integrated into browsers Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0-5.0 and Netscape Navigator versions 4.01 and above. Other browsers, unfortunately, are not able to distinguish the given standard in what its basic lack consists.
We use many different web design technologies in our development process and this page is still underconstruction. Please come back later.
