Flash Decompiler

In today’s growing Internet business environment there is a tremendous need for interactive, dynamic and professional solutions to attract as many clients as possible.

Flash Decompilers enables you to convert Adobe Flash SWF files (one file or even batch of files) back into FLA format that can be edited in native Flash environment. Every group of objects such as morphs, shapes, texts, fonts, motions, sounds, ActionScripts, etc. could be placed in separate FLA library groups, which makes using and viewing the resulting FLA file much easier. Projector EXE files are decompiled the same way as common SWF files.

Using this you can extract any element of the Flash movie such as shapes, morph shapes, images, sounds, videos, frames, fonts, texts, buttons, sprites and ActionScripts. E.g. you can E.g. you can extract ActionScript as *.as or *.bin file, get sounds as mp3 or wav, images as jpeg, bmp or png, videos as flv, shapes as gls, etc. Both standard SWF and EXE (Flash project) files are supported.

    etc., also outlines of vector symbols as actionscript or SVG or a JSFL
    Tool) from SWF files,
