Hey guys i am making a full flash site for my yr 11 yearly project and what i planned to do was make the whole thing in flash and then export it into dreamweaver and put the html in it n shit.
Is that a good way of doing it or would you guys recommend a different way?

you can't "export flash into dreamweaver and put the html in it n shit"
you only can use dreamweaver to put the .swf file into a html file. and then use dreamweaver to put the html around the swf file n shit.

well you can't put the html stuff into flash through dreamweaver. you can load variables into it, but that's a different story.

If you want to make a site fully in flash, you have to do everything in flash itself. And then use Dreamweaver to have the .swf object placed into the html page like an image.

Sorry to ask so many bloodly questions but i am just tryin to get the over all idea of what to do.
Once u have created the whole thing is flash how did u add the html?
Or did u make each one individually and put them in weaver to add the html?

you don't add html to the flash file.
you put the flash file into a html page like you would do with an image.

you should be able to do most necessary stuff in FlashMX. but this has absolutely nothing to do with HTML.

HTML = HyperTextMarkupLanguage meaning you describe how the page looks like using a certain syntax.

Flash = The Software you using

Actionscript = A script language with certain similarities to Java but absolutely none with html.

Hey. I'm tryin to find a good way of displaying the stuff i am goin to put on my site and I came up with two ideas:
A Scroll bar n thumb nails.
With the scroll bar I have made it, but i have had problems tryin to put the information in it....
The thumb nails i think would be the better and easier option but i have no idea how to do them. I have looked for shit on flashkits wid not much luck so i was wondering if anyone could help me with either of the two.
Thanks.

for thumbnails you

1) you use image editing software like photoshop to make a small shot of your film or pic.

2) then import this thumbnail into flash and place it in a button. OR, you place an invisible button in a layer above (or under) the thumbnail. (invisible meaning alpha = 0)
