The IBM developerWorks site has a new tutorial posted about creating Flash movies on the fly with PHP (and some help from Ming).
Rich Internet Applications is the new buzz-phrase for Web 2.0, and a key component of the substance behind Web 2.0 is Adobe Flash. Learn how to integrate Flash movies into your application and generate Flash movies dynamically using the Ming library.
They start with a brief look at Flash and how its embedded into a web page, including the needed HTML. From there, they jump right into Ming.
They create a sample Flash file - a "Hello World" - to get the ball rolling. They modify it a bit and create some moving text of varying colors. Next up is working with shapes and lines, and finally - importing and using images in your simple PHP-generated Flash animation.
