Smile linux vs swf


hello

i like Linux and using slackware 9.1

i have saw that there is no complete software for linux to create proper animated swf
i know that win verson works without any erros with wine and i have used..

and if macromedia made a flash software for linux it won't free and won't open source

so it is not possible ??? for linux programmer's made a (opensource) tool that like swf
editor some thing like a new format

like they have made ogg vorbis xvid etc

what u all think about this...thing

I don't really know anything about swf or flash, but I remembered seeing the Flash for Linux project mentioned on Slashdot. It is aiming to be a Flash clone, and you can already animate 2D objects using timelines.

I'm not sure, but I think the World Wide Web Consotrium have a standard for animation in Structured Vector Graphics, which would be the obvious choice, rather than re-inventing the wheel as with the codecs you mention.

As linux gets more attention, I'm sure projects will be started to develop apps to do most anything you could want a computer to do. I just wish there were more OS games.

This is one cool project!

>> thanx

Actually, I owe you thanks. I want to become a better programmer using Open Source, and so I've been looking for projects to send patches to. I was going to work on Inkscape because vector graphics have always been interesting to me. But that project already has lots of developers, and since f4l seems to need developers, I'll see if there is anything I can do for them. I'd probably never have visited it if I hadn't replyed to your question.

If you find any more interesting vector graphic (not just animation or flash) projects, please mention them here.
