I have a lot of ideas for animations that I would like to use flash to bring into fruition.
Any body have any info of where/how I can get Flash cheap?
(I know I can illegally download it, I don't want to. )

Liveswf. I don't know too much about it but I know it's free. It might not be too good.

LiveSwif, though it's not that good. Why not try Plastic Animation Paper?

If you're a student, try the student version because it's cheaper, though if you're aiming for a more professional career, I don't think you're allowed to make money off it. This isn't really a good way to get the program, but there are people who sell their copies of it on ebay,amazon, etc. If you're ONLY leaning toward animation, buy older versions, (I recommend Macromedia Flash 8) just because those are cheaper and everything you need for animation is there.

The reason I don't want to illegally download it is because I promised my mom I wouldn't.
That may sound lame to most people, but my mom defended me when my dad would tell me it was
stupid for me to draw the stuff I do, so I kinda owe it to her.

I really have respect for what your doing here ;)

but I do you want to make money with your animations? because it might be a good idea to start with an illegal version.. and when you made some money buy it.. that way you support the makers as well ;)

To be honest, I actually had an illegal version, my mom found out and asked my nicely to delete it.
Also, I found out that LiveSwif no longer exists, is there annother flash program that's legal and free?
(or at least cheap?) I don't care about making money at this point, I don't want to count my chickens
before they hatch.

I think adobe have (or will have soon) this service where you can "rent" flash, I believe it was $30 per month or something. If this is currently active, you can download the trial for a month, and then rent it for the next few months until you're good enough to convince your parents to buy it for you.

Ditto :)

If what you want to do is animate then pick up some freeware like "Pencil" or my old fav "Plastic animation paper"
