Advice for creating Flash sites
I am a PHP & HTML programmer, but wanting to delve into flash programming for websites.
Any advice or tutorials people could give me?
I have used flash before, but not very good in it.

hi, I'm a FLEX/AIR programmer so I may be able to give a bit of advice or two:
I think that Flash has gotten a bad name because of bloated sites, bad banner ads, and crap animations.
here's some things I've learned:
1. keep it simple and engaging
2. use the lightweight Sprite class when you can (as opposed to the MovieClip)
3 use multiple swfs when possible as opposed to one big one (modules)
and it all depends on what you want to do. Since I'm not much of an animator: I use it for rich internet applications, so I use the more 'code based' FLEX framework. If you're more into the design/animation aspect, then use Flash CS5
I hope that helps,
