Hi Jonathan,

Interesting question - Flash IS more complicated but
also offers you the ability to customize a demo
through animation and programming. That said, you can
do some interesting things by using both programs
together. For ex., I am currently producing CD and
web-based tutorials using Flash MX and ViewletBuilder,
a demo/training application like RoboDemo that
produces Flash movies (and used to be a TECHWR-L
- I use Flash to create my front-end UIs with splash
screen, navigation system and control buttons
- I use ViewletBuilder to create the individual
tutorials from screenshots and then export these
canned demos as Flash movies.
The front-end calls the demos and plays them within
the UI, making the whole thing appear seamless.

Now could you use Flash to do the whole thing (UI and
tutorials/demos)? Yes, but (speaking from experience)
it would be pain and take far longer because Flash is
more of a "swiss-army knife" to for web
animation/application than for producing demos.

My 2 cents worth:
- if you want to produce canned (or semi-canned)
demos/tutorials, stick to RoboDemo or ViewletBuilder.
- if you want to produce web animation/applications,
stick to Flash MX.


PS: Does anybody know what happened to DemoShield? How
does it stack up against RoboDemo/ViewletBuilder?

What thoughts does everyone have about using RoboDemo
or Flash MX? Flash MX seems more on the complicated
side whereby RoboDemo can help get stuff out
more quickly.

Thank you.
