Flash Templates Tutorials - PUBLISHING
If you create a site with Flash, it is sometimes necessary to include some other files.
To show the Flash movie in the browser you should first open HTML document which will activate the Flash movie performance. In addition to this HTML document, you can also create a graphics version of your Flash movie in JPEG or GIF formats to show it, if the user doesn’t have the Flash player installed.
The main file format for Flash content is Player Flash format (. Swf). Player Flash format is the only one that supports all functional interactive Flash opportunities. You can run the Flash player in the following ways:
In browsers like Internet Explorer and Netscape equipped with the Flash player. With Flash Xtra in the Director and Authorware with Flash Active X in Microsoft Office and other computers managed by Active X. As part of QuickTime movie. As an autonomous application called projector.
File format of the Flash player is an open standard and can be supported by other applications in future. In addition to the format of the Flash player, you can export movie clips and create Flash images in a number of formats, such as GIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP, PICT, QuickTime, and AVI.
The publisher not only generates Flash player files, but also graphic files in many formats suitable for use as images, and HTML document itself with all configuration settings required to launch your movie.
If you want quickly export a single file of some type, use the Export command. Export parameters target Flash clip content for displaying in other applications. You can export the whole Flash movie as SWF file or as a series of bitmap images. You can also export a separate frame or Flash image as an independent image.
Instead of using Publisher, you can also create your own HTML document in any HTML editor and to include tags required to display a Flash movie. Before publishing your work, you can test the movie by using Test Movie and Test Scene. To change or modify the Flash movie, created by Publisher, edit the original of the Flash movie first, and then publish it again. A Flash movie imported back into Flash loses part of the information of creating process.
