I have searched and searched for some cheaper / free alternative to Flash and the only one I can find is Swish. (What?! Is Flash that complex/clever that no-one in the open source community can figure out how to emulate it?)
So before I go and buy swish max, I need to ask if it can do the following (or is it best used for dancing letter effects)?
I want to have a diagram with several different nodes. When the mouse hovers over one node, I need lines to extend out of the node to other related nodes on the diagram.
I know it sounds simple, but I am relatively unclear on what Swish Max can and can't do. Can it do this? Are there any better / simpler / cheaper tools which can also do this?
Many thanks in advance.
The major drawback of SVG at the moment is that no browser fully supports SVG... To view SVG files today, you will have to install a plug-in such as the Adobe SVG Viewer.
Which puts me off a little.
Check out the samples that are on the Swish max site made by users ( particularly the gamers and music clip stuff ..that should give you the best idea of it's capabilities )..
I want to use a flash template designed by someone else for our website splash page. Have instructions on how to edit, but need to be able to edit the text and I do not have Flash.
Same story - don't want to buy Flash just to edit the text in a file already designed if something else will do that for me.
Is Swish Max2 what I need to do this? If so, I save at least $550 - woo hoo!
