Adobe gave up on Livemotion too quickly. The web standards movement could seriously hurt Flash and I suspect it currently is. There's no sense in developing three presentation tiers:<br><br>- Tier 1: Simple XHTML<br>- Tier 2: XHTML + CSS & Animated Rollover Graphics<br>- Tier 3: Flash<br><br>If there was an easy way for Tier 3 to consume (ala CSS) the items already defined for Tiers 1 & 2, Flash might be useful. But once I get done with Tier 2, I have a hard time justifying the expense of fancy transitions or locking data/functionality in a proprietary format to the client.<br><br>--------------------<br>
I wish Adobe had continued with Live Motion. Admittedly it didnt have the scripting that Flash has but for quick effective animations it was so easy. I am going to dig back through my old discs to reinstall the original version again, I am even happy to work in OS9 to get it done!<br><br>Need a laugh? Visit CreatorDude.com
Yeah...but the whole script inside the file is what turns most customers off. It makes it into a "prisontation".<br><br>I wonder why Adobe doesn't try and build more awareness around the SVG/Dataset capabilities found in CS versions of Illustrator and Photoshop.<br><br>I still can't find many sites talking about how to do stuff with those features.<br><br>--------------------<br>
