Flash

 
 
Flash movies are interactive vector graphics and animation for web sites. Web designers use Flash to create navigation controls, animated logos, long-form animations with synchronized sound, and even complete, sensory-rich web sites. Flash movies are compact, vector graphics, so they download rapidly and scale to the viewer´s screen size.
