I want launch a website with bad-ass graphics like this:

http://www.superdudes.net/index2.php

what is the best software to start building? (like frontpage, swishmax, i dont know something where I can just get in there start building buttons, events, and adding in cool visuals.... I know alot of code in VB and C++, I just have never worked with web applications)

I have developed VB forms for years, so properties, methods, buttons, combo-boxes, and databases are all easy for me.

Thanks!

I suggest you use Flash if you are looking for some descent design and glossy ones too.

Hello OptionsMM!
The site you gave as an exsample is made from several 'Flash' movies which were made in 'macromedia flash MX 7/pro'.
I know so as it asked me to install the player for it and wouldn't load untill I did..
I think that Macromedia flash is a great tool to built with animetions for your website. I use it my self. And by the way JS programing and understaing can help you alot with it..
Best of luck. Ori.

To clarify, Flash is for interactive, animated vector graphics that play in the flash plugin. It has an integrated JavaScript-based programming language called actionscript. It's not much use by itself (unless you are of the dubious opinion that Flash-only web sites are a good thing).

Dreamweaver is used to plan and develop HTML (and XML/XHTML/CSS/JavaScript/PHP/Coldfusion etc) pages and scripts that your content (which may be flash) appears in. It's also good for managing the site as a whole. Dreamweaver is very good, but horribly buggy.

ColdFusion is a server-side scripting languaeg like PHP or ASP. Personally I much prefer PHP.

Ah, and don't forget - the software you use is not the most important part, just a small element of the whole. If you're a useless designer (you might not be!), chances are your graphics will not be up to much, no matter what software you use!
