Hi experts,

Is there any software around that does flash movies and allows me to save in the .FLA file instead of the .SWF file? I'm asking this cuz my flash skills suck. ;)

Thx

There is something called Swift that is kind of like a point and click flash animation studio.  It may be just what you are looking for.  Also there are many programs like this advertised on Flashkit.com, I'd check them out see if you can find what you are looking for.

No matter what you use, it's NOT a substitute for Flash skills. Anything you use will STILL require that.

Thanks all. I downloaded those software and they could not save in .FLA. So I'll just refresh myself with Flash. webwoman is right about needing flash skills. :)

I guess my question cannot be answered then. Since only Macromedia Flash can save in .fla format. Thx for all your help though. How do I get a refund on this question?

One think you could try, if you are adamant not to develope in Flash is to create an animated .gif file using some other software, like Fireworks, or Photoshop, or whatever. Then import it into Flash. I think then you can save it as an .fla file.

A great package is Swish. http://www.swishzone.com/

I use that a lot for some animations as it is easier and quicker than doing it in Flash.

You can ask for refund at the community support area. In my opinion if webwoman answer your question, then the award should go with her. Afterall, you agree with her opinion. :)
