Adobe Flash CS4 Professional is the industry leading authoring environment for creating interactive experiences. It can deliver to audiences across platforms and devices.
Object-based animation -Have complete control over individual animation attributes with object-based animation, which applies tweens directly to objects instead of keyframes. Make changes easily to motion with Bezier handles.
3D transformation - You can animate 2D objects through 3D space with exciting new 3D translation and rotation tools, which allow you to animate along the x, y, and z axes.
Procedural modeling with Deco and Spray Brush - Turn symbols into instant design tools. Quickly create kaleidoscope-like effects and apply fills using the Deco tool, or randomly spray symbols across any defined area using the Spray Brush.
Metadata (XMP) support - Add metadata to SWF files using the new XMP panel. Quickly assign tags for enhanced collaboration and better mobile experiences.
Authoring for Adobe AIR - Deliver interactive experiences to the desktop with new integrated capability to publish to the Adobe AIR runtime. Reach even more audiences across more devices - web, mobile, and now the desktop.
XFL support - Open content from Adobe InDesign or After Effects software and retain file integrity. With the cross-application XFL format, easily import content in Adobe Flash.
Inverse kinematics with the Bones tool - Create chain-like animation effects with a series of linked objects, or quickly distort a single shape using the new Bones tool.
Motion editor - Gain detailed control over keyframe parameters, including rotation, size, scale, position, filters, and more, using the new motion editor.
Motion presets - Jump-start your project with prebuilt animations that can be applied to any object. Select from dozens of presets or create and save your own. Share presets with others to save animation time.
H.264 support - Encode to any format recognized by the Adobe Flash Player runtime with Adobe Media Encoder, the same tool found in other Adobe video products and now with support for H.264.
