An Old but Still Powerful Web Authoring Machine for Pros

By Ivy Paloma

On Friday, June 20, 2014

Although much older than today’s highly connected Adobe Flash CC 2014, Flash Pro CS6 is still a powerful web authoring application. The environment it provides for creating multimedia content and animation can result in designs where browsers can immerse in an interactive experience. Such interactive content are consistently presented not only on desktops, but across multiple devices as well.

Flash Pro CS6 can quickly generate sprite sheets to help improve gaming experience, performance, and workflow, by exporting animation sequences and symbols. Targeting the latest AIR runtimes and Flash Player can enable your designs to reach various devices based on Android or iOS. Its prepackaged AIR captive runtime can create and provide applications. As the first end user to my designs, I can run to test my content without further downloads through streamline application testing. Included my testing routine is simulating common mobile interactions such as screen orientation, accelerometer, and touch gestures.

Pros

  • Can easily integrate with other products from Adobe CS6 Creative Suite
  • Updated and professional user interface

Cons

  • Requires huge hard disk space

A Much Improved Animation Software with lots of Remarkable Features

By Reinalei Jamir

On Friday, June 6, 2014

I am amazed seeing the progression of Adobe Flash. What once started as a simple animation software several years ago has been changed over time into a complete development platform for interactive applications on the Web. Flash Professional CS6 has now evolved into an authoritative setting for making animation and multimedia content across computers, mobile and portable devices.

If you are new with this version, you will notice that getting started with the fundamentals of animation is an entirely flat learning curve. The process has continued somewhat intact except for the innovation of the new motion tween that makes you utilize the motion editor. Attaching scriptable actions is also still intact here in this version. Moreover, I like the new sprite sheets; it provides much compensation for game development. It let me convert art animations into bitmaps. In addition, Sprite sheets are mostly vital for devices with low processing power.

Overall, Adobe Flash Professional CS6 is a powerful software that able to cover everything that you need. Whether you are a game developer, media content creator or an animator.

Pros

  • It has a better workflow
  • It has a built-in device simulation

Cons

  • It is difficult to develop 3D content
