Other good resources: Movies with Ming, Getting Flashy With PHP, Ming functions for Flash

if (!class_exists('swfmovie')){
    die('Sorry - Ming is not available on this server :-(');
$shape = new SWFShape(); 
// color (255,0,0) ==> Red
$f = $shape->addFill(255, 0, 0); 
create a simple square:
25,25 ---> 25,50
  ^          |
  |          |
  |          !
50,25 <--- 50,50
// create movie object
$movie = new SWFMovie(); 
// flash animation size:
$movie->setDimension(320, 240);
// add the shape to the movie
// output the movie:
header('Content-type: application/x-shockwave-flash');
