View Full Version : Transparent Adverts!!??

08-19-2002, 06:09 PM

I have visited several sites recently (one example being http://www.studentguide.co.uk) that open up some sort of flash type movies advert upon entering the home page. Using the site above a large toaster drops in from the top of page and pops up two pieces of toast with info on them, the movie (if it is amovie is transparent).

How is this done, is it flash, activated by javascript ??

The following site is another example, on this one there is an advert displayed first and then when the main index page is displayed an advert for a computer game is generated....


I'm interested in how it is done as I would consider using this type of interactive advertisement for future use...

Yes, those are flash 'movies' with transparent backgrounds. Being that this is a javascript forum, I doubt you'll find what you are looking for here. www.sitepointforums.com has a flash forum
