Digital Signage.using Flash or Swish?

 3:23 pm on Apr 1, 2008 (gmt 0)

I have a client who wants me to design some digital signage that will be displayed on an approx. 32-37" LCD TV in the main office. They are a landscaping company.

Unfortunately i dont have Adobe AfterEffects to do something very sweet and smooth looking...

I do however have Flash MX2004 and a version of SWISH...also (dont laugh) windows movie maker....i know, i know...

but i have never really done this before soo....

can i design in Flash with some very high resolution images and make this look decent?

what do i need to consider before i accept this contract?

Did your MX package come with Freehand? I had the original MX package and it did, not sure about 2004. If this is the case you are best off using Freehand, Macromedia's vector program most similar to Illustrator. The vector graphics can be exported as a generic EPS and scaled to **any** size without loss of resolution.

You will, however, need to use the correct resolution for any imported images. Television still requires 72 DPI, so any images placed in the document need to be 72 DPI at the dimensional size needed.
