    Flash manipulates vector and raster graphics to provide animation of text, drawings, and still images. It supports bidirectional streaming of audio and video, and it can capture user input via mouse, keyboard, microphone, and camera.

    Flash files are scalable. This means that the same file can be resized (e.g. to fill a different proportion of the computer monitor) without loss of quality or increase in file size.

    Bitmap (or raster) images are stored as a series of tiny dots called pixels.Bitmap graphics can be edited by erasing or changing the color of individual pixels using a program such as Adobe Photoshop.

    Unlike bitmaps, vector images are not based on pixel patterns, but instead use mathematical formulas to draw lines and curves that can be combined to create an image from geometric objects such as circles and polygons. Vector images are edited by manipulating the lines and curves that make up the image using a program such as Adobe Illustrator.

    I assume that you are talking about Adobe Flash movies. If so then the following differences between a bitmap.

    Flash files are vector based. Vector based is a different way of saving image data. In a bitmap if you were to draw a line between two points, each individual pixel in the entire image needs to be saved. With vector images to save data of a line between two points you only save the two coordinates of the points, the thickness of the line, color and curve. This makes it a very compact file compared to a bitmap when using designs that hold allot solid shapes and lines. If you would save a photo as a vector it would be a bigger file then when you save it as a bitmap.

    The other big difference is that flash movies are rich media. They can be interactive, play audio/video and play animations.
