Trivantis Unveils Flash Creator
Trivantis has released Snap! Empower, a new tool to create and share Flash animations.
Snap! Empower is designed to allow anyone to develop interactive Flash material, with access to hundreds of templates and dozens of pre-built animations. It also provides the option of creating customizable resources from scratch, including photos, audio, video, animations, interactions, and timing.
Additional features include:
- Media sharing on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, and snapchannel.com;
- The ability to send animations to mobile devices with HTML5;
- Integration with Snap! By Lectora, which converts Microsoft PowerPoint documents to Flash format;
- Drag-and-drop functionality; and
- The ability to publish interactions to a variety of formats, including SWF, AVI, FLV, MP4, OGG, and 3GP.
The desktop software features three main areas: page editor, project map, and design center. The page editor lets the user move material around, delete unnecessary elements and add new ones, as well as change the design of the page. Project map organizes the material, allows the user to re-order pages, and replace material from the library. The design center includes the library with images, video and audio files, and page templates.
Software requirements include Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP (Service Pack 2 and above); Adobe Flash Player 9 and up; 1 GHz Pentium processor or higher, with 2 GHz recommended; and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and above. Users can view created Snap! Empower projects using Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or 7.0, Firefox 2.0 and up, or Safari 2.0 or higher.
Snap! Empower costs $99 and is available now.
