Subject: FLASH: Site Design in Flash?
From: Tim Layton

I wanted to throw this question out to the group because I want to gain
knowledge from everyone's experience.

For a basic site that is designed entirely in Flash 4, is it best to have
one large .swf file on a single timeline utilizing optimization techniques,
use multiple scenes, or call independent .swf files as needed? An example
may be of a typical site might have three or four main areas such as;
Company Info, Services, Product Info, etc... Most sites have menus that
allow the user to dynamically select the area they want more information on,
and I am curious of what the best method might be to handle the transition
from one menu selection to another.

I have used flash 4 to add interactivity to a lot of my sites but I am going
to take the plunge and design my first site entirely in Flash 4. I know
there are a lot of variables to take into consideration based on the
criteria of the site and the needs of the users, I am just trying to get a
general idea of what people do when using Flash for the entire authoring
solution. I have a lot of traditional html/java/javascripting experience
and am trying to think of the best "Flash" way to accomplish basic site
design issues.

I look forward to your comments and suggestions.

Best regards,
