    Animated sequences

    I am not sure if I am searching the wrong terms or what, but I cannot figure out what the following is called. If you go to isadoradesign.com you will see animated videos/sequences .. what is that called. Are there programs for creating them or is it a different style of coding?

    Edit: I had the wrong link. Fixed now.

    It's called "bloated animated rubbish people used to do with flash, that we've been told for 30 years not to do on websites because it just pisses off users and is a complete epic failure at accessible design, user experience, or usability".

    Seriously, "designers" who pull those types of stunts need a bullet in the brain since they no Jack about *** other than "ooh, flashy"... only further evidenced by NONE of the page even coming close to meeting WCAG 2.0 AA minimums so for certain types of clients, say hello to fines and lawsuits if you pull that stunt on a page.

    Basically, I advise AGAINST crapping on a website that way.

    You'll lose more visitors having that animation than would you just having plain old HTML. Remember content is king, people who are looking for something on the web are looking for something particular not some flashy animation.

    Does anyone know what it is called and if there are any sort of programs to assist in making animations like the example site?
