Flash control for screensaver?


What are the advantages/disadvantages of using the Flash component on my
screensaver application?
The basic animation that the screensaver will include can be done either
with Flash or by writing code.  But with the Flash control, I can easily add
much more fancy animation. But I don't know what disadvantages (in terms of
user installation, PC requirements during installation, etc) may arise from
using this Flash component.

Any help is appreciated.

VMI,

    I can't think of any, of course, you would have to make sure that the
minimum required version is on the machine.  Other than that, if you are
comfortable using flash animation, then by all means, use it.

    I think a slightly easier distribution scenario would have you using WPF
for your animations, as it comes installed by default with .NET 3.0.
However, the animation in WPF is time based, where as in Flash it is frame
based, and that could make a big, big difference, depending on your skill
set.

Thanks for the reply.
Is Flash required on the user PC?

    Well, if you are going to develop in flash, then the adobe flash player
is required on the machine.
