    Can Flex?

    bsmith21
      I was wondering if i can create a data driven animation app with flex.
      An example would be dots on a race track based on data.

          You could create this kind of thing with Flex, but I wouldn't recommend it as it would be more work than its worth for the project. I imagine with something like this, you would create the animation in the Flash IDE and then load that SWF file into Flex to receive data updates from your application.

            If you do write the animation in Flash and load it into Flex 2, you will need LocalConnection to communicate between the two. We have a techNote on this in the Adobe Flex developer center.

              My plan is to have real time data provided by a database and have the animation move based on the changing data.

              Is the recommended solution to embed flash into flex?
