- Why is there a separate textfile combined with
a Flash file, instead of just one complete Flash file?
Think of it as a database system - although you may think it is a
bit inconvenient when you start out, in return you get an extremely
simple way of updating your effects. You see, if you want to make
any changes to your animation, you only need to change the text file
of the effects and voila, it's done. So if your boss asks you to change
the content of a banner, you just click on the text file, replace
the content, save the text file and that's it. Easy-peasy!

- Am I limited to the dimensions in Anim-FX or
can I alter the sizes?
You are not limited to them; you can easily change the dimensions
by just modifying the width and height properties of the effect in
your HTML file and adding the SCALE parameter. For example, the effect
at the top of this page is made with a standard intro size of 600x300,
and in the HTML file we have put the width at 100% and the height
at 80 pixels, thereby changing the size. If you want to use different
dimensions, for example for a banner, it's important that you always
leave the Y position of the effect in Anim-FX at 150. Add the scale
no border tag in the HTML code. Anim-FX does have a feature to generate
the code with the desired dimensions instantly.
