10 ActionScript ActionScript 3.0 ActionScript 3.0 is third incarnation of
ActionScript Language and an ideal programming language It Provides more powerful programming constructs and core language structure, with things like event dispatching being built in as core language objects

11 Advantages of Flash Interactive content Load faster than HTML
Small file sizes Stability Fairly simple to create Universal ease of use & compatibility The major benefit of Flash over html is that it loads faster, and has much smaller file sizes. Flash can have moving pictures, games, and interactivity on pages that download in a reasonable amount of time. Flash is more stable than Jave applets, which are sometimes incorrectly programmed and can use up all the resources on your computer causing it to crash (ex. UGA’s Oasis). Basic animation is fairly simple to create, and more advanced animation can be simplified through the use of templates. Another benefit to Flash is that most computers now come with the Flash Plug-In already installed, so you are ready to view Flash files instantly. It also works the same in almost all the browsers out there today.

12 Be aware… Unintuitive=intimidating Flash player plug-in
Can be overused There are a couple of pitfalls to Flash, but the are easy to overcome. Flash is very in-depth, and can be intimidating. Once you learn the basics of the program, you can create countless animations. You must have Flash Player plug-in to view Flash animation. Also, once people learn the program, they sometimes go overboard with animations on their web page. Remember too much of a good thing is not always good.
