Can I seamlessly embed "tilted" slideshow in website?

I'm new to Flash, but I have Flash CS3 Pro and Dreamweaver. At this point in my learning, I'm still in "cut & paste" mode regarding ActionScript code.

I am trying to embed a looping slideshow (27 slides with dissolves between individual slides) seamlessly into a web page graphic. I say "seamless" because I want the slideshow frame to be tilted, so I am creating my slides in Photoshop (higher quality transforms than Flash), compositing the tilted frame into a (non-tilted) cutout of the web page background graphic. So I want the final non-tilted frame edges of the slideshow (which contains graphic elements from the background) to (perfectly/invisibly) match (color and position) the background graphic.

One question: Should I create the slideshow as a flash movie, or is there a more efficient way (lower bandwidth, less compression) to create a slideshow from individual frames? This is a naive question - perhaps it will end up as a movie anyway, but it seems that the bandwidth would be less sending individual frames (with ActionScript controlling the sequencing) than a 30 fps movie. By the way, I need dissolves rather than wipes, because this is a stop-motion animation sequence that wouldn't look as good with wipe effects.

Answering my own questions. Using transparency/alpha to create my tilted screen mask (in AE CS4), then exporting a movie (F4V).

Maybe F4V isn't the best choice. Probably better off with On2VP6 (?) due to people not having the latest version of Flash(?)

Steve Allen invented the monologue. I think I just invented the monoblog.
