  • Hey Flash people, check this out...

    Here's a cool new tool which is in the alpha stages from a very cool dude named Matthias Kramm

    Try this:

    1. Download the file from the link above.
    2. In a text editor create a file named (in same directory as swfc.exe is in) and put this in it:

    .swf name="box.swf"
    .box b1 100 100 color=yellow fill=red
    .put b1 pin=center scale=0%
    .frame 100
    .change b1 pin=center scale=100%
    .frame 200
    .change b1 pin=center scale=0%

    3. In a DOS/command window (RUN > CMD in XP Pro) navigate to the same directory as swfc.exe/ and type:


    Voila! Check out the resulting .swf! Pretty cool, eh? This tool os just alpha so there doesn't seem to be a whole lot in the way of docs yet but here's a bit about it

    This tool has a great future for users of AMS because theoretically you can use it to create wrapper .swfs for videos, .swf banners, and other .swf content dynamically at runtime. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Once I can figure out how to use it to create a movie with very specific frame rate, stage dimensions, and frame length I'll post a tool to create wrapper .swfs (for video) on the fly. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img] (AGRO, this would be perfect for what you mentioned about having a way for people who know no flash to be able to wrap their flash video with an fscommand on the last frame)

    Try this one too, same method:

    .swf bbox=200x200 version=5 fps=25 name="transparency.swf"

    .box box1 90 90 color=yellow fill=blue line=5
    .box box2 90 90 color=white fill=red line=5

    .put b1=box1 75 75 rotate=0
    .put b2=box1 75 75 rotate=90
    .put b3=box1 75 75 rotate=180
    .put b4=box1 75 75 rotate=270
    .put box2 30 30 alpha=100%
    .frame 300
    .change b1 rotate+=360
    .change b2 rotate+=360
    .change b3 rotate+=360
    .change b4 rotate+=360
    .change box2 alpha=0%

    That's from some stuff Matthias emailed me which isn't on the web yet, very cool... I can hardly wait to see how this little tool shapes up...
