i have a client who is sold on the idea of his logo moving. its a marine construction company, so their logo has a tugboat pulling a barge w/ a large crane on it. he wants that to "float in the water" across the screen in the logo area.
my question is, what would be the "smartest" way to do this? animated gif or flash? which files are bigger/take longer to load? i know w/ flash, you need the browser to have flashplayer installed. im not sure about his potential users' browsers, so i would assume i would need a "non-animated" if i flash wasnt detected.
i never bothered to teach myself animated gifs and i havent learned flash either.
