Clueless about acquiring Flash (or something similar)... No, not flash skills, I mean the actual technology... ronin msg:1564328 5:32 pm on Jan 18, 2005 (gmt 0) Apologies for the dumb question, but I ran two site-searches and couldn't find a relevant thread.
Is there a free, open-source alternative to Flash in the same way that OpenOffice.org is a free, open-source alternative to MS Office and Mozilla Firefox is a free, open-source alternative to IE?
I understand that the source code for Flash is open-source (is that right?)... but... uh... it's not free, is it? Or is it?

I don't know of any really free tools. There are some online that you can create some animations, but they don't create anything really of merit. Now besides macromedia flash there is also swish. It is cheaper, but looks like it is going up in price. ronin msg:1564330 7:25 pm on Jan 19, 2005 (gmt 0)
Ah. Thanks for setting me straight. So it's just Swish and Flash then? That's a bit disappointing. ole_bubba msg:1564331 6:17 pm on Jan 23, 2005 (gmt 0)
[ ...] powerbullet.com has both a free and paid version. I have used it to make an intro for a site, and it isn't as refined as the $400 programs, but not bad. smokeyb msg:1564332 11:47 pm on Jan 25, 2005 (gmt 0)
