Im not much into flash myself, but would be helpful to know which programmes are available to use.
Some links for you, pretty widespread.

So much from me, maybe it helps Smile
What about presenting this content in a presentation, made with Powerpoint f. ex.
Its also included in OpenOffice or MS Office and can deliver easy made animations.

Gone but not forgotten.

If this is for what I think it is, flash would be out of the question.

I rarely have need to work with animated GIFs, so I don't know of many programs (check Hases links). if you have a copy, I would use Adobe Photoshop or The GIMP, because you would already have the necessary software for it. Other wise, get something that is designed for easy animated gif creation, imho, unless of course, you're a graphics nut to start with lol -- then a simple tool isn't necessary.

In the case of GIMP, there are several tutorials quickly found on google: including Simple Animations (animated gif output).

And photoshops help system should have extensive information, considering how much the thing costs lol.

In either program it should be fairly simple.

I could easily animate the red and blue circles like in the example, in Flash CS3. Making an animated GIF in Photoshop would take much longer (for me at least).
If this is for what I think it is... I don't know if embedding Flash Player in PDFs is very common yet.

Leon stepped up to the plate. Made it in flash, converted it to Gif. Easier than we both thought hehe.

Thanks buddy!

I take it as the topic is taken care of, isnt it?
If not, I'd do these animations in Photoshop.
But it seems i was too late... :roll:

Yeah it went very good. In Flash's Publish Settings one can export the animation as "animated GIF". Just perfect.
Caern... I think I saved you alot of time then if you were thinking about using Photoshop Smile . That would be 1 layer per frame (for a smooth animation)... and then imagine a 30 frame per second animation.

Yeah Leon, thats actually my Problem atm!
How did you get that .gif so very smooth?
I actually used ImageReady. It's a little bit easier to move around the objects, but what programm did you use, i second Medic!!! I wanna have that one, too Biggrin

I used Adobe Flash CS3.
To make the animation smooth I just set the framerate to around 30fps when creating a new project. Well, Flash is made for animating graphics. You got a layers palette with a timeline where you can add keyframes etc etc. Photoshop is not really made for making animations.
