there is a question and either i’m not articulating it well or you aren’t understanding me.

I’d like a web site when first visiting it ,to be an animation. imagine a moving logo. when the logo / animation stops, the final frame dissolves into what is the official home page (because the final frame of the animation and the home page are exactly the same image). you would not see this animation again when page hopping around the site.

i once created this using a web building app called Hype. i’m trying to teach myself how to do it from scratch.

I’m wondering where to begin? what’s the best resource to learn about creating – for lack of a better word – first page that only gets activated on first visits or complete reloads?
