Sothink SWF Easy can help you create interactive elements for your webpages. Evaluating this program can be not easy because the level of difficulty depends in which way you choose to create the contents. First, there is an option of using one of the multiple available templates. These include photo albums, banners and navigation buttons. By means of a wizard, you can provide the application the necessary data to customize the chosen template. The second way can be somewhat difficult as it implies constructing your contents from scratch by drawing elements on the canvas, adjusting their properties and adding effects to them. For this purpose, there is an extensive library of shapes, artwork and animations at your disposal, which will surely save you a lot of time. If you have a good command of ActionScript or you are willing to learn it, you can exploit the possibilities of this programming language and create your own code.
In my opinion, this program has an advantage of providing several ways to publish the resulting contents. In this respect, it allows exporting your work as SWF, GIF and AVI, but what really makes it to be a few steps ahead of similar applications is that it also supports exporting HTML5 files.
In general, Sothink SWF Easy is a very complete application, whose full potential cannot be realized by trying it a few times or reading a review about it. I suggest you to download the trial version and see it for yourself with the help of the excellent accompanying help materials, which include a detailed tutorial. Then, if you are satisfied with it, you can purchase the full version at a price that makes this software more affordable than similar applications.
