Flash is used mainly for creating vector animations, but recent upgrades have put increasing emphasis on its ability to use video content within SWF files. With the arrival of Flash MX, Macromedia introduced a new ‘flash video’ format (FLV) specifically for that purpose. Flash video hasn’t taken off in a big way as yet, but Flix Pro could be the program that helps to popularize the format.
Wildform has announced the release of Flix Pro 4, the latest version of its Flash video authoring and encoding tool. New features include FLV output, an FLV to SWF converter and a new interface.
