What you describe wanting to do is well within the capabilities of Flash. In general, if you can imagine a control strategy, chances are it is doable with programming/Flash.
Save yourself some money to start with and get the latest version for a 30 day trial. That should give you time to get some idea of how the software works. Even if you have a programming background, there is a learning curve that comes with using Flash, so getting the trial version at least gives you a chance to test the water.
Ned thanks for the reply.
I’ve never done any programming or animation design in my life so I’ll be starting from scratch. I just downloaded the free trial and have started pouring over tutorials on utube. What I’m finding is that I have a long road in front of me. Ha!! But I love a good challenge and this one will be huge. The idea of putting what’s running through my mind into a working program that others could benefit from is simply too amazing to pass up. Gotta go for it!!!
I’m so fired up I can’t even sleep
Wish me luck
Best of luck
