  • Evaluate the tools and techniques used to create finished animations

    "Conclusion Overall I don't think that fireworks is a very good animation making program, everything just seems a little static to me, and there is not much going on. I prefer the flash animation over this because you are able to create animations allot faster than you can with the others. I believe that Photoshop is a very good animation program but it is hard to use. Really i don't think that fireworks is very good, it's ok for beginners to show them how animations work and how to create them but that's pretty much it."

Organisations need this system or a DBMS in place because it stores tonnes of information that otherwise would be cumbersome to retrieve if everything was on lever arch files and papers and in employees offices."
