I've been doing Flash for about a year now. I had a friendask me to create some banner ads for them. Is Flash a good option for this? Any other suggestions on programs to use that would be better? Are there drawbacks to using Flash, which looks like it will be an easier solution for me as compared to doing GIF animantions? Or chould/should I do GIF animations in Flash? Please outline the steps if different from creating a normal swf file.
Thank You very much
