Flash Animator – Münster

You are looking for a freelance webdesigner in Münster? Someone who can create a high quality flash animation in time for your next company’s presentation or the upcoming fair in Münster? You have come to the right place. We have been creating flash animations for a long time with an outstanding attention to detail while maintaining affordable rates. For our clients who have some more questions about why vector graphics are the de facto standard when creating web animations we have compiled a short explanation of how vectors work below.

Why do webdesigners use vector graphics for animations?

Vector graphics are the best format to use on the web for animations due to their smaller file size in comparison to video data or simple animated pictures, like for example .gif files. Vector graphics use a sophisticated compression algorithm by displaying graphical shapes using X and Y positions. For a triangle the computer just needs to know the three positions of the end points to display a triangle that can be scaled virtually limitless without quality loss. In comparison a mere picture of the same triangle in JPEG format would increase in size by four times if you scaled it to double its size and also suffer great losses in quality and become pixelated. That is why designers use vector programs for creating fonts, logotypes and of course animations.

We have created a nice little animation below that illustrates how vector works and how small the file size of a complex web animation can be – in this case 137 kilobytes.

Nowadays it is also possible to create static internet graphics in the .svg (Scalable Vector Graphics) file format. While Microsoft’s Internet Explorer kept this format (and also the .png format) from going mainstream for a while, nowadays it is fortunately implemented even in this glorious browser (Webdesigners will know what I am talking about). Nowadays Wikipedia shows most of the logos and maps in .svg format, so it is possible to scale these graphics without quality loss and put them on big posters and screens.

The main use for vector graphics on the web remains with animations nonetheless. Even though bandwidth has increased, thus making it possible to use video for a lot of websites, the use of Flash continues to this day. Major video portals like YouTube and Vimeo rely on this technology to offer their services and most of the video content on the web is still delivered this way. We acknowledge the criticism of the technology – annoying web banners, blinking popups and crashing webbrowsers due to badly scripted applications from the stone age of the net, but the advantages the technology has brought the web if used for a good cause prevail by a big margin. Nobody would condemn the invention of the printing press for all the annoying flyers and advertising that lands in our post box, so why blame a technology for the uncreative use by some of us?

We would love to help you turn your vision into a graphic reality. Explaining complex circumstances by using animations and sound is a great way to reach your audience. A museum can use interactive animations to show movies about the artists to unveal the actual human being behind the paintings. The possibilities are virtually without limit. Move your clients by offering them interaction. We will do our best to make your dream come alive.
