    Have you actually made the movie yet? It'll give us an idea of where you are exactly in the process.

    To create a flash movie you need software such as Flash (Macromediat), Swish or there are a few others. You might check www.flashkit.com for more info.

    Inside of the Flash program there is a tutorial that goes through the basics on how to add keyframes, tweening, etc. Macromedia has tutorials on their site as well: http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/mx/flash/

    Here is a very simplified tutorial of how to use a lot of Flash features. They use the Mac version of Flash, but it's much the same.

    What program are you using to make your website? If you are using Dreamweaver there is an Insert Flash icon that makes things easy. If you are using straight HTML then check here.

    When I import a Graphic image from Adobe into Flash, the Rectangle white Background is around the Object (Dolphin Photo) even though I deleted the Background in adobe, how do I Cut or delete this unwanted white Background, the books on flash said to'Deselect the object & Delete but it didn't Work, every thing else is working fine, anyone have a suggestion, Thanks RP

    The code "<embed>" works. I don't remember the entire syntax. Try searching for the embed code online.
