    Yes. Dreamweaver lets you create flash swf files. I just started the tutorials on them in class last night. They were simple so I suppose it depends how extravagant you want your flash content to be. I was making text rollovers in about 30 seconds.

    No way bro! We're gonna get you to understand Flash MX, but it's just gonna cost you $90.

    2 books!

    Macromedia Flash MX : Training From the Source
    Macromedia Flash MX : Advanced Actionscript

    With these 2 books (500pgs / 600pgs) I was able to pickup Flash MX (via Studio MX) learn it's GUI and tools, and am now on Chapter 10 of 17 in actionscript.

    These books are WONDERFULLY written, give you great step by steps and include CD's with tutorials and what not on them.

    So go read! Flash MX ain't EASY, but the rewards of learning it well are really only limited by your imagination...... that and til Flash MX2 comes out... (please space this out Macromedia!)

    swish is often used.. as is things like 3d max and plasma. not advised tho.. stick with flash, that $90 could not be better spent!

    swish sucks...
    Flash is not hard, it may have an initial steep learning curve, but then it tapers off real quick.

    That said, Swish is meant as an addition to Flash (Flash text effects creator), not a replacement.

    Stick with Flash, there's some great tutorials over at www.actionscript.org and www.flashkit.com.

    There's a list of other Flash software here:
