Hey George,

The most obvious one is Adobe Flash Professional CS 5.5 however that can be pricey. A cheaper alternative is SwishMax4, this is by all accounts really good and almost comparable to Flash Professional.

I should mention that depending on what you are doing it may be worth doing your project in HTML 5. Although Flash is still wildly popular there is definitely a serious transition to replacing it with HTMl5 currently underway.

Hope this helps.

James

Thanks James

I'm writing some game modules, and wanted to include a very small piece of animation on the opening page of a PDF file. That's all.
