1996: launches Flash 1.0

BC: The launch-demo (at Mac World? I seem to remember) was gob-smacking - the promise of a tool for movie-quality scaleable vector animation, with smart drawing tools, scriptable, cross platform, backed by Macromedia and compatible with Director (by then Director was the dominant authoring engine, Shockwave for web work)!

I was very happy to see Macromedia buy & re-launch F(utureSp)lash as, by then, I'd been using it as a replacement for Microsoft's god-awful MMControl on a MSN (US) music show called Rifff - and even at v 0.9 it was gorgeous!

Anyone else remember Matinee.co.uk? Egomedia? Spooky & the Bandit?
