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.
