Hi,

I just puchased anim-fx in order to create flash banners for my PTR website. I was able to create the banner, but in order to display it on a site, you have to have a .swf file and a text file in the same directory for the banner to work.

My question is this. I want other people to be able to use the banner off of my site to promote it, but apparently they need to download all the same files to display it. Is there a way to combine all these files so they can just link to my banner url and display it on their site?

Thanks. Hope I didn't confuse anyone.

what's anim-fx? If you want to combine 2 files for download you can put them in a zip/rar archive and add a link to that archive anywhere on your site. Still, I'm confused.

It's a flash banner designer fo novices. I know how to zip files, what I'm trying to do is allow someone to use the flash banner I created on their web site by linking to it on my server. Anim-fx creates three seperate files that must be used, thus the problem with a simple link.

well... if the people promoting your site just pull the flash from your server, you'll have no problem... as opposed to them saving it to a directory on their server... understand?
the only real flaw there is that it eats more of your bandwidth, but hey... probably not that much more...

That's the problem...apparently they must have the text file also to get the banner to work on their site.

The best solution is:
a- buy flash mx 2004
b- learn how to use it
c- make a banner without any problems!!!

If they require the swf and the text file to view the banner etc, just supply them with both.

Either a ZIP/RAR file they can download from your server, or Email, or ... let them place a link on their site that references the files on your server.

Why do they require the text, whats so special about it ?

I was trying to avoid them having to host the banner on their own site.

I guess the text file controls the size, etc of the banner. I know I have to have it in the same directory as the swf file for whatever page I'm going to display it on on my site.

If the two files are only required to be in the same directory, just give them a hyperlink for them to reference to your site from theres.

I.E.

Give customer a link such as :
http://www.yourdomain.com/flash_banner/banner.swf

Then, just make sure your text file is in the same folder.
