Adobes Projekt "Wallaby": von Flash zu HTML 5 in einem Schritt

Bei der "Adobe MAX 2010" wurde eine experimentelle Technologie vorgestellt, mit deren Hilfe man Flash-Animationen in HTML 5 konvertieren kann. Diese "Technology Preview" (Codename "Wallaby") für Mac und Windows kann jetzt von "Adobe Labs" kostenlos herunter geladen und ausprobiert werden. Adobe hat sich jedoch bislang noch nicht zu einer offiziellen "Road Map" committed.

Executive Summary (in englisch)

Der Hersteller auf seinem "Adobe Labs"-Portal: "'Wallaby' is the codename for an experimental technology that converts the artwork and animation contained in Adobe Flash Professional (FLA) files into HTML. This allows you to reuse and extend the reach of your content to devices that do not support the Flash runtimes. Once these files are converted to HTML, you can edit them with an HTML editing tool, such as Adobe Dreamweaver, or by hand if desired. You can view the output in one of the supported browsers or on an iOS device.

Please note that not all Flash Professional features are supported in the HTML5 format. The Wallaby Release Notes describe what features are supported, what differences we have already discovered between the various browsers, what device variations have been found, and any currently known issues."
