I need help with some information. I don’t know how to ask it, since it’s probably beyond the limit of my knowledge since I have only basic skills with Flash. However, play and watch those two animations please. My jaw drop on the floor when I saw them. LINK 1 LINK 2 My question is, how were those animation pattern made? Were they created within traditional Flash software? Or was maybe another software used to create these complex pattern animation and fantastic particle effects? Thank you for taking some of your time to give me some guidance!

I'm thinking They may have done most of that as video and then incorporated it into Flash. I am thinking of going to college to do a lot of stuff like that and it is called Motion Graphic Design. Here is some stuff that looks kinda like it:

Yes, most definitely.

If you look at it you'll see that the highlight technique follows the mask. It's certainly a nice design, it's something that's currently being way over-used though.

My only critique to the above is it's really not for a web site - it doesn't provide quick links to products I want to see and I'm shown things at a very fast pace that I may want to look at, or may get frustrated with very quickly. It should also only preload the technique, not all the graphics which could be done while running the flash.

Because I'm not well-versed in flash I couldn't point out to you how to implement a mimic technique. Look at masking techniques. There should be tutorials on 'outlining animations' or something similar to those keywords.
