Such "Splash Pages" are usually a no-no in web design, but many web sites do it anyway. It's like saying "Look, we have a cool Flash designer, you gotta check out his work!". Another example would be a shop which forces you to look at a TV Ad on a big screen at their entrance before you're allowed in :bsmilie:
have never recommended flash intros for company sites. unless ur a high techy company or something entertainment related, u could consider a flash SITE, not intro. that would be more apt. else, flash or gif banners are usually the furthest i'd go.
