Publishing Your Flash Movie

 

Flash movies must be published for users to view them outside the Flash CS3 environment and Flash Player. This section discusses the more common methods of publishing Flash movies. For this example, we want to publish in two formats, Flash and Windows Projec-tor, which creates a standard Windows-executable file that works even if the user hasn’t installed Flash. Select Publish Settings… from the File menu to open the Publish Settings dialog.

Select the Flash, HTML and Windows Projector checkboxes and uncheck all the others. Then click the Flash tab at the top of the dialog. This section of the dialog allows you to choose the Flash settings. Flash movies may be published in an older Flash version if you wish to support older Flash Players. Note that ActionScript 3.0 is not supported by older players, so choose a version with care. Publish the movie by clicking Publish in the Publish Settings dialog or by selecting Publish from the File menu. After you’ve published the movie, the directory in which you saved the movie will have several new files (Fig. 16.30). If you wish to place your movie on a website, be sure to copy the HTML, JavaScript and SWF files to your server.

As we can see in the Ceo Assistant 1.0 example, Flash is a feature-rich program. We have only begun to use Flash to its full potential. ActionScript can create sophisticated pro-grams and interactive movies. It also enables Flash to interact with ASP.NET (Chapter 25), PHP (Chapter 23), and JavaScript (Chapters 6–11), making it a program that integrates smoothly into a web environment.
