Adobe Flash is Dead, Long Live Adobe Animate

Adobe Flash is Dead, Long Live Adobe Animate

hi everyone Chris here and today I
wanted to talk about probably every instructional designers favorite topic
Adobe Flash that’s right I had a flash filled day today first trying to force
some ancient Adobe Flash stuff to work in a modern browser second complaining
that flash even is still around and third looking for a way to pull the
elements out of the flash file so that basically the whole thing can be rebuilt
so there’s two options that I found to essentially rebuild a Flash module and
I’m kind of curious what everyone else is found so the first is Adobe animate
because it’s still basically flash so if you have an FLV file you can still you
can open it in Adobe animate and work with it there either export it as html5
or muck with it some more and pull the elements out the other one that I found
which is the one I had to use because we didn’t have any of the original files
was SWF – decompiler org so it’s an SWF Decompiler and you literally just drag
the SWF file onto the Decompiler and all of the individual elements are there you
can export them so yeah flash is going away and it’s going to be a big big mess
so what are you doing to sort of get ahead of this in your own organization
are you just redoing stuff are you going through and trying to pull elements out
of ancient stuff so you can reuse those in modern incarnations are you just
saying maybe please they’ll be crossing your fingers and hope
they’ll be like an act like a one kick converter from from flash to html5
I don’t think that one’s coming yeah so that’s my question how are you dealing
with flash and my tip is the SWF – decompiler org
which lets you take the elements out of a compiled SWF file so anyway that’s all
I got for today hope your day went well and I will talk with you tomorrow
