Adobe Flash interview tips to remember

  1. What is vector graphic animation?

A)        Vector graphics” are different from “raster graphics” like jpg, gif, png, bmp graphics. And vector graphics use math formulas to draw animation shapes, while raster graphics save millions of tiny colored dots to draw photos.

  1. Can Flash .swf movies be very time consuming to edit?

A)     Yes It is very laborious work to change a Flash web page quickly. For this reason, you will almost never see a dynamic content page like a news site utilizing Flash for its rapidly-changing content. Instead, Flash is used more for decorative purposes, and for advertising and online gaming purposes.

  1. I shoot underwater with a TTL strobe that does not allow you to set flash exposure compensation. How do I set fill flash with this set up?

A)       Let’s assume that you have an N80 body in an underwater case and are using underwater TTL strobes. Here you could set flash exposure compensation from the N80 body (assuming the case let you access that control). I’d tend to set the N80 to Standard TTL if I wanted to fiddle with flash levels, though, as in balanced fill-flash modes you don’t know what compensation the camera is already adding (i.e., you’ll only get repeatable results with Standard TTL).

  1. You understand from the SB-25 manual that the built-in, retractable bounce card is meant for use with the flash head in a vertical position?

A)      I do (this is true of the SB-24, SB-25, SB-26, SB-28/28DX, SB-80DX). That’s because it helps keep a little light from being lost, but more importantly, it provides just a bit of catchlight in the subject’s eyes (the bounce directly off the card).

  1. Is everyone required Flash Player plugin?

A)    No because they do not like “blinking things” on their screens, some users choose to disable or not install Flash Player.

  1. Can some organizations block Flash movies from being received through the Internet?

A)      While this is partly motivated by fears of Flash viruses and Flash hackers, the greater motivation is disciplining staff. Many managers of private companies do not want their employees playing Flash games at their office computers, so they will ban Flash movies at work through technical blockers on the network. Do not be surprised if your employer chooses to implement a ban of Flash at your office.

  1. Explain the Flash vs. Animated Images and Java Applets?

A)      Animated images and Java applets are often used to create dynamic effects on Web pages.

The advantages of Flash are as under:

  • Adobe Flash loads much faster than animated images.
  • Flash allows interactivity, animated images do not
  • Flash does not require programming skills, java applets do
