Top new features of Adobe Flash Professional CS5.5

Expanded platform and device support

Flash Professional CS5.5 makes it easier to reach audiences on the latest Flash Platform runtimes, including Flash Player 10.2 and Adobe AIR 2.6.

Deliver to desktop computers. Take advantage of the ubiquity of Adobe Flash Player within browsers, and extend beyond the browser with Adobe AIR. Your content displays with a consistent look and feel across operating systems and browsers.

Deliver to mobile devices. Deliver content that plays back on millions of devices worldwide, and reach audiences on smartphones that run Android 2.2 and above.

Efficient workflows for multi-target content

Simplify the creation and management of multiple FLA files that are created for a single project, but that target multiple devices. Share code and assets across documents and device targets to efficiently create, test, package, and deploy content for a wide range of screens and devices. For example, symbols modified in one document update across other documents.

The New Project dialog box has been enhanced to include a Default Document section, which allows you to specify a document name, target player, and ActionScript version.

Content scaling when resizing stage

By checking the Scale Content With Stage option, you can easily resize artwork and timeline data to work at different sizes. View larger.

One of the most time-consuming aspects of designing content that is optimized for various screen sizes is scaling content to fit to every size. Designers spend much of their time adjusting a single design to work at multiple sizes.

With Flash Professional CS5.5, you can choose to scale the contents of your file when you change the size of the stage. Everything on the stage, including symbols and motion paths across all scenes, are scaled. There are also controls for limiting scaling to unlocked or visible layers.

Enhanced layer controls

Flash Professional CS5.5 gives you more control over the contents of your document with the ability to do even more with layers. Copy and paste layers--including ones with motion and inverse kinematics armatures--to a different timeline or even to a different FLA document. You can also cut and duplicate layers, and even copy and paste folders.

Symbol rasterization

Complex vector artwork can take a toll on the processors of mobile devices, degrading rendering performance. Flash Professional CS5.5 offers two new options that allow you to easily export content as bitmaps, which help enhance performance of your mobile content.

The Convert To Bitmap command allows you to convert selected artwork on the stage to a bitmap. Once converted, the artwork is no longer editable in Flash Professional, although you can edit it in Adobe Photoshop software.

The Export As Bitmap command is a display property that you can apply to movie clip symbols. With this setting enabled, chosen symbols are rendered as bitmaps on stage when the project is published, with the benefit that the symbol remains editable.

Screenshot
Flash Professional CS5.5 includes more than 20 new code snippets, including ones for mobile and AIR application development. The pick whip tool appears when you position your mouse over a movie clip placeholder in the code. View larger.
Enhanced code snippets handling

Flash Professional CS5.5 brings several key enhancements to the Code Snippets panel, offering quick and easy ways to add ActionScript 3.0 code to your projects:

  • Place your cursor over a movie clip placeholder in the code snippet, and a pick whip appears. Drag the pick whip to a movie clip on the stage to insert the instance name of your target movie clip into the code.
  • Use more than 20 new code snippets, including ones for creating mobile and AIR applications, for accelerometer, multitouch gestures, and save/load data.
  • Upon selecting a snippet from the Code Snippets panel, you can view a description or preview the underlying ActionScript code on a heads-up display (HUD) before you apply it.

In addition, the code snippets themselves are formatted to help novice and inexperienced programmers parse the code and apply it quickly. Typographic formatting and rollovers indicate areas of editability.

Streamlined publishing and document settings

Save time with a newly designed and more efficient Publish Settings dialog box, which you can now access directly from the Properties panel. Select multiple formats on the left and edit the corresponding settings on the right. New to the dialog box is the ability to publish a SWC file to a path of your choice without having to publish the SWF file. In addition, the dialog box now returns relative paths when selecting a publish destination so that files can be more easily shared across teams. You can also change the version of Flash Player, ActionScript version, and stage size directly from the Properties panel.

The Document Settings dialog box also features a new Auto Save feature, which automatically saves your file at specified intervals, on a per-document basis.

Pinning support for inverse kinematics

With this new release, Flash Professional continues to offer a powerful interactive design toolset that allows for creative exploration and implementation. You can now lock, or pin, bones to the stage, allowing you to place restrictions on the movements of selected bones. In addition, you can now create multiple spans or armatures on a single layer, and you can more easily define more complex movement of armatures, such as walk cycles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product January 9, 2012
By Scott
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I just bought this for school. After just a few basic tutorials (class hasn't started yet), I am very impressed with what this software can do.

As far as student verification, it could not have been easier or faster. I simply went to the web site provided inside the package and filled out the form using the provided product code. After sending the information, I went to my school email inbox right away and the serial # was already waiting for me there. My experience with the student version of Photoshop was the same. I think the big help in this matter is that the school I am attending is on Adobe's list and I have a school email account. Even if I would have had to wait for the serial, it would be worth it to save so much money versus retail price.

5.0 out of 5 stars works as advertised November 12, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I had some issues proving to the seller that I was a student of North Central Texas College. They said that they didn't receive my proof of enrollment and I had to resend it through a different link but one I got my serial code to unlock the program, it worked as advertised. Read the instructions carefully about proving your enrollment in your learning institution. You will not get the serial code unless you prove your enrollment. The program will work with out the code for a 30 day trial period but after that, you need the code to continue.

Works as expected, so far as I can tell. They were pretty good about getting back to me with the serial number.
