Converting an interactive Flash animation for iOS

Jan 21, 2012 7:46 AM

Tags: #flash #mac #ios #swf #ibooks

Hello -

 

I am a bit of a Flash newbie - but we have some interactive particle simulators that had been programmed in Flash (.swf files).

 

I would like to find a way to convert these into some other format for use in iBooks Author.

 

How difficult would this be, and what kind of tools would I need to do it?

 

Thanks.

    you're surprised?   how many people do you think would want to convert swfs into something that can be used by ibooks author?   you can bet apple isn't anxious to facilitate anything that would make it easy.

    i think the chances of this being doable is close to zero if your swf contains any significant actionscript.

     

    in any case, you're more likely to get more information checking with ibooks author experts because the number of flash experts that have heard of ibooks author is going to be much smaller than the number of ibooks author experts that have heard of flash.
