    flash or a video software?

    Hi, I was wondering if the video on this page would be easier to produce in Flash or an Adobe video software application? I created it in Flash. The 3d spinning are logos are an MOV created in a vide app and brought into Flash:: click here.

    Any extra details are welcome. thanks!

    As an open source language that can now support Flash-like technologies, HTML5 has been gaining traction as the new default for web development. It offers many web document structuring, styling and interactivity features such as searchable text within images (through SVG) plus new tags, elements and attributes, which enhance document displays. It also has the advantage of being more mobile friendly by requiring less processing power thanks to its lightweight framework. Conversely, as a newer technology HTML5 has yet to be incorporated into all browsers at its full capacity. It is still prone to being displayed dissimilarly in different browsers due to being implemented at different stages of its development. It also lacks some of Flash’s more robust aesthetic capabilities such as creating visually rich 3D experiences or “movie like effects”. Despite these drawbacks, including requiring more coding knowledge to implement, HTML5 is becoming the predominant standard.

    If all you need to do is playback, then use a video. If you need interaction, it's probably best to think JavaScript now.

    This is a step backwards IMO because JS isn't nearly as capable as Flash. So it goes.
