Banner Effect is a flash banner maker that lets you create banner ads in a simple way without flash coding. Type the text, drag and drop the images you need, choose effects and transitions and, voila, the banner is ready to be used. Then you can optimize the size of your banner and save it to a single SWF file.
The tutorial and the program were clear with step by step directions. Also, liked the fact that after you had finished designing the banner that it gave the option of saving your file into a flash or html5 file. If you choose the html5 it also gave you the code to paste into your html page.
1 thing that I was mystified was when I was putting in "click target" on the tutorial it had a button to press that brought up another box. I could not find this button nor bring up the box.
As a graphics and web design company I would recommend this product highly especially if you plan on moving into html5. Get this program... you'll love it.
1) the resulting animation runs on an ipad and iphone
2) the resulting animation REALLY DOES run on an ipad or an iphone !!
3) and yes it still runs on flash anyways, for you die-hard flash fans.
had to jump through a few hoops to set the pixel size. that could have been easier.
it lacks the ability to pass parameters into it, like parameter control the text displayed, how it loads, font-size, stuff like that.
but keep in mind this is a very new product. lets give it a week or so to start implementing some new cool features.
i have been [over]using flash for years now on banners and all animation. this easy-2-use tool is really a drop-in replacement for all the other flash tools i have had used ever since website animation was first possible.
