Flash vs. Flash builder?


I am trying to figure out which I should put most focus into. My understanding which may be completely wrong is both can basically accomplish the same thing using different methods…

If i want to create interactive interfaces which also contain animations, which route would I go and does actionscript work the same in each program?

I know the answer will vary based on who is answering, but if you knew both programs what would cause you to choose one program over the other for specific projects?

Thank you in advance for any and all replies :slight_smile:

For animation you probably don’t want flash builder as it has no timeline capability. The actionscript is pretty much the same, flash builder has mxml too (layout markup).

Flash builder is better for application development that is code heavy rather than visually driven.

Thanks for the reply :). I understand a bit clearer now.

Flash Builder is an excellent tool for those who wish to create their internet site under the specifications of this format. Simple and easy to use. Click here, for more info.
