SWiSH Max is a Flash creation tool, which means you may design your own Flash creations without using Adobe Flash. It’s your choice as to what you use this software for, it is best used for creating Flash elements such as advanced transition effects or buttons. Some people have also designed some very good interactive Flash websites using this tool.
A vector graphic creation tool
The SWiSH Max software is a Flash, Dynamic HTML and vector graphic creation tool. Most of its users create things such as cross-platform movies, interactive movies, interactive websites, presentations and animations. It is sometimes used instead of Adobe Flash because the SWiSH software is easier to use than the more complex Adobe Flash software. SWiSH Flash creation software is also less costly to use than Adobe Flash. Sadly, this software does not support Adobe Flash features such as shape tweens, bitmap drawing tools and ActionScript. However, the more general Flash creation features are present, such as symbol editing, vector drawing and motion tweens.
It has more positive points than drawbacks
SWiSH Max is ideal for people who are looking to build Flash elements for their website and/or are looking to make interactive cross-platform movies. One of its biggest drawbacks is the fact it cannot open or save .fla files, which often limits exchanges that would otherwise occur between other programs to the final .swf file. However, this program is less expensive to use and less complicated, which suits many Flash programmers.
