Flash

This page is devoted to multimedia viewed in the Flash Player by Macromedia. It includes examples I've created and links to Flash resources. Links open in a new window.

You probably already have the Flash Player on your computer. The latest version may be obtained for free at Macromedia Flash Player. (Downloading it takes about 5 minutes on dial-up.) You can download a free 30 day trial of Flash for developing Flash at Adobe Downloads.

Here are some examples of Flash. I developed these with Flash 5.0, but most can be viewed with Flash Player 4.0.
