We are using FLEX trail version tool and we need further
clarifications on our requirements which are mentioned below, for
evaluating the tool:
Req. #1: We have *.DIR movies and we want to have *.PNG
images out of these movies. Is it possible to meet this requriement
using FLEX tool ? Will, quality of derived *.PNG images be equal to
that of original movie ?
Req. #2 : We want to display customized menu buttons in SWF
movies. Is it possible to achieve this by FLEX tool? Can we also
hide the menu buttons only than entire screen ?
Req. #3 We want to save, retrieve and delete files either
from server or to local hard drives from a SWF movie. Is this tool
provides support for this aspect too ? Do we need to do extra
scripting to do this or complete functionality is available with
respect to this ?
Req. #4 We would like to have facility or some means of
accessing the controls displayed on SWF screen for reading /
writing. Is this also supported by some means by this tool?
Req. #5 We want our SWF files processed with FLEX tool to be
supported uniformly across all Versions of Windows Vista, XP and 2K
and also on Mac. Is this possible with this tool ?
Req. #6 Lastly, the file size of FLEX is considerably larger
than what we are expecting. Is there any chance of getting this
