    It’s nice to see this. But nothing, nothing, nothing on the amazing multi-platform capabilities of Flash+AIR? Are you sure what people are looking for is just an html animation tool?

    • By david h - 8:34 AM on September 7, 2015  

      Agree Flippo. I’d like to see more on Flash/AIR, Starling/Feathers, etc.

      Hi Filippo,

      We are adding a ton of creative tools that could be used by all the supported platforms.

    Nothing against AIR/AS or interactive authoring, but animators using Flash for TV and broadcast media have felt abandoned or marginalized by Adobe for over a decade. Kudos to whoever put the Gerhard and Roush sessions at the top of the list. I would eat my hat over this acknowledgement of our industry, but sadly, my hat disintegrated while waiting for this moment.

      Well, I guess there is always a new beginning. Hope you will try out the new release and let us know what you think.


      Ps. I will buy you a new hat. 🙂

    What do Adobe want? Adobe destroyed Flash. Now Adobe want?

    hi, flash is not animation tool, it is interactive tool and adobe is dealing with it since steph jobs blocked the player as animation tool let us know is going to be a vector interactive tool there is a pathway to continue as an interactive tool.
    the power of flash as I see and most of the users is the ability to draw, design, animate and combine all of that with a scripting language to build interactive result
    the question is why adobe over look that the power of flash is the ability to develop what you see if that ability does not exist so stop developing flash there are tons of tools that can animate svg and …..

      Hi Hadi,

      Flash Professional is an animation tool for creating interactive and non-interactive animations. We intend to make it a tool for creating any type of animation, on any platform/library and on any device.

    Maybe its just me but when talking to so many many many people about Flash CC… time and time again the fact that Adobe isn’t promoting AIR/Starling/Feathers gets mentioned and it really get’s me wondering. It’s like the entire Adobe/Flash community WANTS to hear more about AIR/Starling/Feathers as they are loving/enjoying developing with it but Adobe keeps going “Nah”

    • By hadi - 6:17 AM on September 11, 2015  

      agree with you Ryan, only hearing about new animation features , what about other features?????

  • By Gio Nadirashvili - 10:08 AM on September 12, 2015  

    Totally agree with other guys here. I understand what adobe is trying to do with flash but, you’re doing it in a totally wrong way! Only custom platform that somewhat works is the createjs plugin even though custom plugin support was announced 2 years ago! You should really work a lot more towards making adobe air, starling, feathers solutions more powerful. I also recommend working with haxe guys to directly integrate awesome haxe features in flash pro cc and at last bring a decent code editor to the ide.

  • By Keith Morrison - 8:46 AM on September 17, 2015  

    I don’t normally comment, but I agree too much with the above. I use AIR/Starling for corporate interactive ( not games ) way more than animating. While it’s easy to animate, I do most of my animation with the Greensock Tweening library.
    I agree with the above comments that your focus is not what many of your current professional Flash users are looking for. It seems your trying to be the Flash of yesteryear, you should know the basic life fact is that you can never go back! I would prefer a fix to NetStream Class that doesn’t blink the video when it loops over all these new ‘HTML web animation’ tools.
    I’m not sure how many forums full of these same comments you need to read to get this.
