Adobe Launches Flash-to-HTML5 Conversion Tool

Adobe Launches Flash-to-HTML5 Conversion Tool

Adobe has released a new tool called “Wallaby” that converts Flash apps into HTML5 code. The tool, which is currently in beta, might make it easier to turn some Flash-based apps into native iOS apps.

While Wallaby supports Flash features like vector art and images; classic text; keyframes; MovieClips and graphics; classic, motion, and shape tweens; rollover buttons; and instance names, it does not support filters (except simple alpha); blend modes; dynamic masks; some TLF (Text Layout Framework) text; 3D transforms and 3D tween; audio and video; and ActionScript.

Adobe’s Tom Barclay says, “I’m interested in how useful this output is, what people intend to use it for, and whether this is something we should be supporting longer term in Flash Professional as another output option or publish setting.”
