Currently I need to create simple animations for screen displays (digital signage), which can be displayed vertically or horizontally. The animations will have a combination of Jpegs and Vector. So as I have no background in animation I would like to know would I be better using and learning after effects or flash professional. I am also concerned to learn flash as it seems to be discouraged at the moment.

After Effects has a more complete set of animation and effects features. Flash Professional is more appropriate for creating interactive content---i.e., content that changes while it is playing based on inputs at the time of playback.
