Check out the flash at http://www.spot-media.de/framebase.php?flash=1

How is this effect achieved? Where there's a butterfly that starts from the flash movie and flies outside to the HTML area?

I don't see any butterflies outside of the Flash movie area?
They just leave the movie area, period.

The affect can be acheived with some DHTML and JavaScript. The Butterfly is NOT part of the flash but is a seperate animation all together, most likely done with DHTML and JavaScript. As for how exactly they do it, no clue.

As I posted, I fail to see where the butterflies end up in the html areas only, but if they did, yes the use on another layer/division would be the way to go.
The butterflies can still be a Flash movie, only it's embedded on a higher layer than the other Flash movie.
This is the way to do it...

I think it only works with IE. using DHTML and Flash and a transparent background of the flash movie (agai, only works in IE).

IE has some extra stuff that is not part of the WC3.

Transparent background of a flash movie only works in IE. (that I'm aware of).
This is the big thing about cross-browser compatability.
You could achieve the same effect with an animated transparent GIF and DHTML, that MAY work in all browsers.

Sorry that I can't be any more help....now gimme some cheezy poofs! :P
