I am starting a project and we're using Flex Builder2. I have
experience with Flash and most all of the major graphics programs.
I will be in charge of design so I'll be supplying the graphics.
My question(s) is this: Should I compress the graphics before
I supply them to the programmers? In flash for example, I bring my
graphics into flash uncompressed because when the SWF is created,
it compresses them there. Does Flex operate the same way?
In other words, when an application is created in Flex, does
it rely on and outside folder/directory to access the images, OR is
it like a Flash swf, that is a standalone?
You can do it either way. Graphics can be loaded dynamically
or embedded in the Flex generated swf file. We had a design firm
create graphics for us which they delivered in a swf file. we then
embed them via the embed statement;
