Adobe Flash Animation by Made to Order Software

Making a great thing even better!

The letters SSWF in a curly font with dots on the ends.

Using our robust open-source C++ library and scripting language, ScriptSWF (SSWF), you can create Adobe Flash animations on the fly.

Since it's initial release in 2002, SSWF has been extremely popular. Despite never being advertised, it has been downloaded more than 77,250 times just on, has been converted to work on several Unix platforms not initially supported, and has been integrated into several commercial products with great success.

SSWF supports most of the Adobe Flash tags, including audio, ActionScript, and the new enhance fonts features introduce in version 8. The project includes a JavaScript compiler, in a library of its own, in order to compile ActionScripts to byte code supported by all the Adobe Flash players.
