At the moment there are several ways of putting animations on your webpage, each with advantages and disadvantages. The main thing to keep in mind is whether your audience will be able to view your animation on the device and browser they are most likely to be using. Then there is the question of how suitable is the type of animation to your message.
iOS devices (iPad & iPhone) are currently unable to show Flash content. If this audience is important to you Flash is out of the equation. However there may be times when the subject requires the kind of interactivity and rich-media experience for which Flash is idea (such as training or education scenarios), and as alternative page content can still be offered, it may be reasonable to go ahead.
Currently about 96% of online devices support Flash. The vast majority of desktops and portable PCs are able to show Flash content in some form or other. Many mobile devices also support Flash (in some cases as ‘light’ versions), however iPhones and iPads do not.
Depending on the message that is being conveyed, it may be appropriate to use Flash on a webpage to deliver content that benefits from a strong visual or interactive style. Many educational websites employ Flash knowing that their user base will probably have access to Flash-enabled devices in order to get the maximum benefit from the website. Using web page code to determine the users platform and browser, it is possible to create animations in both Flash (including interactivity) and video (without user interaction), and have the appropriate version automatically and seamlessly served to the viewer.
Osis have used Flash to produce animated charts and graphics, process visualisations, cartoon type content, interactive movies including 3D enabled content and games and banner adverts. We are happy to advise on the pros and cons of using Flash on your website – call us for a no obligation chat about your project.
In general, animations produced this way are not as optimised as comparable Flash animations, having larger file sizes and longer download times, and transitions and movement of graphic elements tend to be a little jerkier. As browser technology and applications are in constant development, new solutions are appearing all the time for addressing these various design challenges.
We can advise and offer samples to illustrate the possibilities and limitations of HTML animation, if you are interested in finding out more please get in touch.
For animations not dependent on user input, the new HTML5 standards allow for video to be included on web pages without requiring any plugin. It is also possible to create 2 versions of a presentation, one interactive version in Flash and another video version which then are selected for playback depending on the browser’s capabilities.
