I like watching those short flash animations on youtube. I recently got to wondering how do they make them. Can anyone tell me how they do it? I am interested in learning how.

If you're into serious flash animations, then get the full-blown Adobe Flash. Alternatively, you could also get Swish 3D. The interface is like Flash, easier to use, good enough to create interesting animations for websites and blogs. It's best you attend a course to do flash animations, and then experiment on your own. Some Flash books are really difficult to follow (even the Dummies/Idiots series). If you could get books with lots of illustrations and practise CD, it would be good but expensive. So, good luck learning to Flash :)

Flash was formerly developed by Macromedia. But now it's owned by Adobe. So we know it as Adobe Flash now, not Macromedia Flash anymore. But how to use it, it's still the same. You need to learn it. There's some programming skills required for making an awesome flash animation. The programming in Flash is known as ActionScript. Actually you can find many tutorial on the internet about Flash. Just googling it and you'll find thousands of free tutorials. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.
