I'm making my first Flash website and I'm looking for how to get started.
I'm planning to have my buttons (either buttons or one continuous image) be small flash animations that activate when rolled over and when clicked bring text content to the area below (that transitions in). For this, should I be using the entire Flash stage? Or, do I need to create the animated image(s) separately? I gather I need to use ActionScript to create the interactivity?
If anyone has any advice or resources, it would be greatly appreciated!
