Favorite animation: Dynamic jpeg, Animated gif or Flash?

Was in a discussion with a friend yesterday and the topic came up, between Dynamic jpeg, Animated gif, or Flash what is your animation of choice and why?

    Mine would have to be Flash, not that I'm anywhere near mastering it (yet) *snicker* :D

    My reasons are, smaller file size and none of the dithering optimisation yucky pixellation ;)

    Very technical eh LOL

    MING once it comes out because not needing Flash player + PNG level graphics + alpha transparency + animation = yes.

    .mng is basically .png, but with animation support, meaning higher image quality than .jpg images as well as the animation you'd expect in .gif images.

    I only ever use .png images and there's no real viable alternative to Macromedia Flash under Linux as of yet (there's projects in development, but nothing 100% solid yet..
    PHP, CSS, XHTML, Delphi, Ruby on Rails & more.
    Current project: CMS Object.
    Most recent change: Theme support is up and running... So long as I use my theme resource loaders instead of that in the Rails plug-in.
    Release date: NEVER!!!

    I think flash is one of the best and latest technology to use these days. It is really very useful for creating animation in the website that help to attract the visitors.
