In flash animation, a symbol can be a part of an object and can be animated at the same time. Flash animation, or flash cartoon, is an animated film created within Adobe Flash. In the late 1990’s, Flash animation artists had very limited abilities because of the bandwidth that only allowed the artist to produce shorts and interactive experiences under 1 MB with audio and high-end animation.
Flash animation differs from web comics in the way that Flash animation is more interactive and are often created in a series. Adobe Flash has greatly increased in popularity and usage since its creation that it is now possible to take a class on how to use the program.
