    beginner question re data animation

    kimreynolds

      Please excuse my total lack of knowledge, but is flash capable of animating objects (visual elements) such that the objects' motions (translation, rotation, etc) is completely defined by an external data set? For instance, I want to show a car doing various maneuvers based on x and y position data (plus rotation data) sourced from an external datafile (at present, excel, but obviously it can be converted into whatever format works). My goal is to produce a series of animation videos, with each one being unique by iteratively changing the external data during the production process. Again, please excuse my lack of knowledge but I hate to spend a lot of money without first knowing if this is even possible. Thanks everybody.
