I see that Macromedia has two versions of flash available: standard and pro.

I will need to integrate flash with PHP and a mysql database. Will I need pro or can I just use standard.

What's the difference anyways (except $$)?

Thanks,

Thanks,

I have already read that and I saw that "Connecting to Data Sources" is a pro feature not a regular feature. Does that mean I can't connect to MySQL databases without Pro?

Well I don't know about Flash MX 2004, but in Flash MX you don't use Flash to directly connect to a database, you load the information from a PHP file... and the PHP file grabs the information.

But i'm not a server-side guy, so I don't know much about the process :(

Cool! That's even better since we already have PHP scripts accessing the MySQL database.
