Flash Editor Freeware and Shareware

Hi:
     I would like to create interactive Flash Tutorials. What tools do I require? I know that Macromedia have products to accomplish this task but this product is far to expensive for me.

Is there freeware or share available to allow be to create interactive tutorials?

Do I require knowledge of actionscript or javascript or other languages?

Hi, in terms of needing to know actionscript, you'll only need to know it if you use flash. I don't know of any freeware/shareware product that can make an interactive tutorial.

Consider the following:
1. just how interactive does your tutorial need to be, if not very, it might be easier to download some javascript / dhtml code from the web and make your tutorial using html and javascript - cheapest option.
2. if you have MSOffice, you could use powerpoint, and try find some sort of free animation programme to suussh up your powerpoint.
3. What's your delivery platform?

alternatively, start saving now!

Hi LearningJava,

 There is no free editor where you can create interactive training as design oriented in Flash. The only other option would be to use Java applets and design something close to Flash but it cant be very user friendly. What I would suggest is doenload the trial version f Macromedia Flash and it gives you almost 30 days of trial within which you can create interactivities. But before you install Flash learn some actionscripting. ;)

Thanks,
KP

Hi,

I suggest you use the shareware--Sothink SWF Quicker. After you install it, you will have 15 days of trial without any functional limitation. You can visit the site http://www.hypertracker.com/go/sourcetec/Quicker/ to have a look at it and download it.

Quicker is an easy-to-use tool for flash movie designer. It is only USD49.99, really cheaper than Flash. Right?

As far as I know, Sothink Support team offers the best service in the world not only before you buy the program, but also after you bought it. I am really impressed on it.

Thanks MatrixII!

I am testing SWF Quicker. It is an amazing tool that can create flash movies easier than Flash. The most important feature is to import swf file and edit swf just the same as you have fla. Incredible!!
