Introduction

I love Flash! It's the fastest, easiest-to-use piece of software on the market to make animations, sound loops, or even complete Web sites! Macromedia has been developing this product for years now, improving it greatly with each version. Now it has full MP3 support, the animations are smoother than ever, and Action Script (similar to JavaScript, except it's for Flash) makes it possible to create even more dazzling visual effects in seconds.

You don't have to be a very experienced PC or Mac user to learn how to use Flash, but many users are not familiar with the many options and features that it has. In this article, I will show you how to make some "cool" introduction movies for your Web site. Specifically, we will try to make an intro movie for a typical "business" site.

I expect you to have followed the basic tutorials that come with Flash 5.0. Be sure to let me know if you have any further questions after reading this article!
