Flash 1
 What is Flash?

Flash is a vector animation (read about vector animation software) software, originally designed to create animations for display on web pages. Vector graphics are ideal for the web because they are so lightweight.
Flash pages can be made to load faster, but most of the time, the way they are designed in the real world, they do not. That is not a Flash problem, it is more an issue of the Flash developers going nuts with fancy and heavy Flash movies.

 What DO I have against Flash?

Flash handles text very poorly. The web for the most part is about text, we go to the web to read about things, whether it be articles like this one, or what is in your shopping cart, or the latest baseball stats, it is all text.

Flash text rendering/displaying is much slower than HTML and noticeably less clear. Macromedia knows this and that’s why they include the ability to display basic HTML in Flash and that’s why on their own site, they make heavy use of  HTML.

Flash development usually takes much longer than the HTML equivalent. This has been helped to a great degree starting with the release of FLASH MX where they essential provided HTML form components, but it is still slower to create a Flash site than an HTML site.

  What I like about Flash development?

1. You can do some really nice work in Flash that would be difficult and sometimes impossible in HTML alone. Things like complex animations and playing video spring to mind.

2. Practically no browser issues: For the most part, Flash movies will work the same if the user is on Netscape or IE, on Mac or PC. The browser issues (where people coming to your site have different browsers that can ‘break’ your pages) are quickly becoming a thing of the past since most people (thank the web gods) are using IE. But even today, I still have to deal with people who may be using some old browser that can break all but the simplest of HTML code.

  When should we use Flash?

I would use Flash to create a presentation that is similar to a television commercial. This type of presentation is something where the user sits back and enjoys the show as the Flash movie delivers the message to the client with animation, sound, and possibly video. Please do not get this confused with those ubiquitous ‘intro’ animations that still plague many Flash sites. Rather I am talking about informative movies that the user can decide to view to learn about something like a product or a service.

I can also see Flash being used in straight animations, like what your kids watch Saturday morning. One last use where I find Flash handy, is with so called ‘rich-ui’ components like calendars or fancy navigational systems. The only danger here is that if the user doesn't have the proper Flash plug-in, they won't be able to use those components and as such in many cases (like with a Flash based navigation bar) the user will not be able to use your web site!

 What is flash memory?

Memory is capable of retaining digital information under certain conditions. This retained material might be operational code or data files or a combination of the two. The ideal memory subsystem optimizes density, preserves critical material in a nonvolatile condition, is easy to program and re-program, can be read fast, and is cost-effective for the application. Some memory technologies meet one or more of these requirements very well, but offsetting limitations can prevent the product from becoming a genuine solution, especially in newer applications.

 What is the Flash Player?

The Adobe Flash Player is a widely distributed multimedia and application player created and distributed by Macromedia (a division of Adobe Systems). Flash Player runs SWF files that can be created by the Adobe Flash authoring tool, by Adobe Flex or by a number of other Macromedia and third party tools.
Flash is the authoring environment and Flash Player is the virtual machine used to run the Flash files, but in colloquial language these have become mixed: "Flash" can mean either the authoring environment, the player, or the application files.
Flash Player has support for an embedded scripting language called ActionScript (AS), which is based on ECMAScript.

 How many types of Flash Player?

These are the various types.
1. Macromedia Flash 2 (1997)

2. Macromedia Flash 3 (1998)

3. Macromedia Flash 4 (1999)

4. Macromedia Flash 5 (2001)

5. Macromedia Flash MX

6. Macromedia Flash MX 2004

7. Macromedia Flash 8 (2005)

8. Macromedia Flash Lite 2

9. Adobe Flash Player 9

10. Adobe Flash Player 9 was released for Linux in January 2007

11. Adobe Flash 9 Public Alpha

12. Adobe Flash CS3

 What is Authoring Tools?

A program for creating multimedia applications by linking together media assets, such as video, graphics, text, sounds, etc. Most authoring systems also support a scripting language for more sophisticated applications.
An authoring tool is a software package which developers use to create and package content deliverable to end users.

Though authoring tools have a range of uses, they are commonly used to create e-learning modules. These modules are generally written to conform to some international standard, such as SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model) or AICC (CBT) (Aviation Industry CBT Committee).
