A Powerful Software with Better Workflow and Enhanced Overall Functionalities

By Isay Almenanza

On Wednesday, June 11, 2014

I am not a web developer or what so ever, but I have noticed that this web revolution, where everything is now going mobile, and websites are created using HTML5. Adobe Flash has also transformed to an app development tool. Moreover, Adobe Flash Professional CS6 takes this change one step forward since it focuses on Android mobile development.

I am interested in game development, so the sprite sheet feature gets my attention right away. This feature allows me to take all frames in any animation, and store it on a single image. It also holds all the frame of my animation so I can apply it in my games.

Adobe Flash Professional CS6 is clearly meant to improve the workflow when making Android app. If you are an Android applications developer, then Flash Professional CS6 is outstanding software that you might need. However, if you are focusing in more conventional Flash applications such as web design, you might think twice because it has limited features for that.

Pros

  • It is suitable for game developers
  • It has improved Adobe AIR integration

Cons

  • Remote debugging iOS still uncomfortable

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

Lots of Features That Revolves Around Developing or Gaming On Multiple Platform and Devices

By Christine Diaz

On Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Flash Professional CS6 was developed to make some multimedia and animation content for amazing interactivity across all your devices like laptop, smartphones, tablets, and even in televisions.

When this program was first developed, the main objective of this software is to make animations for websites. One of the biggest problems with this is the bandwidth. That's why animating vector art is very convenient because it has a small file size output. So, since the animation only relies on the speed of your computer, and you have a high specs computer, this thing works out fine.

Nowadays, there are a lot of mobile devices that allow surfing the web. Most of the developers right now don't use vector art anymore, because they are not sure if the animation will still run smoothly with their gadgets or mobile devices. Although this program is not a free program, it still has a free trial version that you can test the software in a couple of days.

Pros

  • Perfect tool for game developers
  • It has a lot of improvements with its workflow

Cons

  • This is not a free program
