Create an animated background in Flash

We web designers and developers are constantly on the lookout for animated effects that will help add visual punch to our work. If you’re creating a standalone microsite or a promotional area for a site, it can sometimes be hard to conjure up a design and animated treatment that sits well with the offer. Particularly if you’ve been supplied with very few assets, have no time and are scratching your head about what to deliver by the end of the day.

That’s why I love looping animated backgrounds. Done correctly, they can be a fun and an entertaining way of brightening up an otherwise dull page.
