SA Design



Web animation can range from being extremely simple to being complex. The more intricate the animation, the larger the file becomes and one should always consider that this will influence the speed of your web site. Many beautifully designed web sites have failed because visitors do not want to wait while a graphic is loading. It was found that people browsing the internet will normally exit a web site if the first page takes longer than 10 - 15 seconds to load. There are two types of animation on the internet: Flash and Gif. Animation is great for visual impact, but it has to be optimised - because size DOES matter.

(only used for very limited effects)
