    Guys,

    Do you know any other flash authoring software for Mac besides the Macromedia products (Flash MX and its bigger/smaller brothers).

    Id prefer small and light stuff.

    I used to use Swish (www.swishzone.com) in the PC days but its got no mac equivalent I know of.

    Help.

    Randy

    PS: Mods, if this aint the correct forum, please transfer it na lang. Thanks po.

    Not specifically light/small, but Combustion 3 from Discreet supports flash exports when using it's vector painting tools.

    I prefer to use it for flash animations than Macromedia FlashMX for it's more animator-friendly interface (yes, I HATE doing keyframes and in-betweens in FlashMX... it's a good programers' tool... but not for animators). One thing to note tho, it doesn't have the coding/interactive interface that FlashMX have, so I usually have to export and get my programmers to do the code after the animations are done.

    Also has replaced After Effects for me, so I do both Motion Graphics and Flash Animations with the same interface/program.
