Flash 8 Professional: new video features

Although I've been involved in all kinds of design over the years I've always been a big fan of HTML for presenting my work on the Web. Of course I would use JavaScript, DHTML, etc. but never ever Flash. The technology always intrigued me but I though that it was mainly misused on with so many designers making heavy pages with little content that didn't send the right message, except "Connection failed" at certain instances.

Anyhow, I always kept myself in the loop with developments concerning Flash and with version 8 out on the shelves as of recently I began exploring the new features, looking if there was something that would entice me to get learning. And here comes an interesting overview in which the author discusses video features. I encourage you to read the entire article to get all the juicy details, the introduction speaks for itself: ...whether you're just looking for a simple way to post clips on the Web or wanting to create a super-immersive, video-heavy interactive application from scratch, Flash Video probably has something to offer you.

Very interesting indeed. It looks like it won't be so complex to generate video in flash plus everything will be done "in-house" (I mean in Flash) and not using third party products.

I haven't had the chance to try a demo yet but it seems to me that it's easier to manage video then in previous versions as well. It makes sense with more and more sites publishing a lot of multimedia in Flash format.
