Flash Alternatives
making flash like objects without flash

Flash is a cool technology and can really make a web site a great experience or a nightmare.
I recently found and purchased Swish 1.51. at [swishzone.com....] It creates flash banners quite easily and at a great price. The future updates promise to have even more Flash features.
Now I know you can't always beat the real thing but this program ranks up there. I was curious if anyone else has used this program and what your feelings about it are.

That is a true blessing for "normal" people who don't have 6 months to learn how to do animation sequences in Flash. The files are a little on the porky side especially if you use sound. All in all though it's worth 3 times what they charge for it.

I don't have any expreince witht hat program, but I've heard that Adobe's LiveMotion produces Flash-quality .swf files with a much shorter learning curve than actual 'brand-name' Flash.

Of course, LM's learning curve may only be shorter than Flash for those who already know the 'standard' Adobe interface (through PhotoShop, usually), because it is supposed to be a very typically Adobe program.

I played with Livemotion and did find that its quicker to learn than Flash - and I hate the adobe interface!

Interesting to see that macromedia have recently switched to tabbed palettes too, they annoy the hell out of me. I would rather have interface elements in the same place rather than wasting screen space :(
