You'll need Flash. Either you create your animation in After effects, export it as a rendered video, and then embed it in a flash file, or you can directly crate all this in Flash. I would recommand the second option because you'll have more control on synching / animating your objects with the user imput.
I definitely agree about not having a flash intro into the site, but I do really want to replace the existing graphic (seen here: http://www.scott-industries.com/) with a flash animation, as I think it will provide useful information about our capabilities to potential clients. As you can see, the graphic only fits within the body of the homepage and is not going to be very intrusive. One question that I still have not answered is how do I have the intro or lead-in portion of the flash animation and then continuously loop just the product animations. Do you know how I can do this? Thanks
I was thinking I would have access to better text animation effects with AE. How are the text effects built into Flash? Also, do you know the answer to my looping question? Thanks!

Ask in the Flash forum.
If you were building a looing animation in AE, we could point you to the loop function in interpret footage.
Why so? If there's a better way do this, then I'm all ears!
Because anytime my eyes - unprepared, and unwillingly – meet something like this ( excuse - the example is purely random!)
I'll instinctively try to coordinate all my training , all my skills into a quick and as fast as possible coordinated movement to hit the escape-button
( or varinant : click- loading - click -loading -- click - loading - gettah"&%outofhere as quick as possible) but thats me!
Maybe everyone is misunderstanding me... I am NOT making a full-screen website introduction animation here... I an only making this a frame in the body of the home page of the website. This is MUCH less obtrusive. If you go to my website right now, you will see where I plan to put the flash frame.
Can I just use the flash output of after effects? : YES (adj size though)
How do I make the products keep looping without having the intro text changes loop as well?
in your editor'
: enable "autoplay=true" for the flv element
Here's what I've got so far... http://www.scott-industries.com/
I'd still like itto only loop the product fly-bys and not the intro text... Does anyone have any suggestions?
Also, does anyone have any general suggestions or potential improvements I can make?
