    How do they do this

    Rich Rainbolt Level 1
      This link with an article about Adobe Apollo (03/21/07) http://www.crn.com/software/198001827 has an ad in the upper right corner for AMD where the small banner ad changes into a large (1/4 web-page) interaction with the content on the page.

      Does anyone know how to do this or a URL where there is a tutorial, explanation, plug-in-magic or course etc. on how to do this?

      The part that intrigues me is that I cannot image that AMD would pay for 600x600 if they only get that if people interact with the small banner ad. Also I wonder how the "shadow" interacts with the page (including the lower banner ad)? If anyone knows how this is done, I'd love to know.

          Here is a guess, having only looked at it for a few seconds...

          An HTML layer that contains a small SWF files. On rollOver (javaScript) the layer is sized and the source content of the layer is changed to a larger and different SWF file. Since both layers and the SWF background are transparent, it looks as if the page has been pealed back.

            That is an interesting idea.
            Thanks.
            It is interesting to see how adverts are working with the web-publishing company to work with the page's html. It seems a lot more complicated than delivering a flash banner.

            I wonder how they work that with the site owner as far as buying space etc.. (not that I'm asking - just wondering)
