From Lucky Monkey Designs:
Used by both professionals and novices to create rich interactive content for web sites, KoolMoves is a popular Flash authoring tool with rave industry reviews! Combining ease-of-use with a wealth of powerful animation effects, KoolMoves makes it easy and inexpensive to create professional quality animations for web sites. As Adobe Flash(R) has developed into the standard for animation on the web, KoolMoves has emerged as an advanced but low cost alternative to Flash. It features libraries of text effects, Flash templates, and clip art. For advanced users, it has Flash AS1/AS3 action scripting and components. In addition, Koolmoves now exports as AVI/MP4 and mobile-friendly Html5 with jQuery Mobile widgets and Jssor-slider slideshows. A simple wizard for exporting as an Android mobile app is also included.
What's new in this version:
Added new export/gui mode -- Html5 slideshow using Jssor slider library.
Added optional right-side toolbar with data view buttons.
Ive tried about 8 flash progs and this one (along with Swishmax) are the best, easy to use (especially compared to adobe flash) with loads of features and effects. I wont bother using adobe flash any more.
as its not as common as adobe flash there wont be so many tutorials, but there are enough and the manual is GOOD as well as the prog being easy to get to grips with.
For $49.99, the price of a Nintendo Wii game, you can be creating Flash animations for multiple purposes. Easy to use Timeline/Scene layout. Built in text and photo animations. Buttons, Action Scripting, and Movie Preview.
Obviously not as bundled as Adobe.
As a part time web developer on a budget, this is the Flash alternative I was looking for. My clients are very happy with animations I create with this product. The movies are professional. If you download the demo before buying it, give it a good chance and play with it for at least a few days before making your decision on the product. I love it and I'm very happy with my purchase.
I got this from a netguide magazine (July, 2005) and IT IS THE BEST!! Works great and has all the things I need!
For all the other users out there, I'm 10 years old and do not have any professional needs so it might not be good enough for you. And also I got the full version FREE on an issue of the Netguide Magazine (which is a great mag well worth the $4.50).
A fantastic program with all the features you would need.
I have been trying to create a Flash file for my work's website. I spent several days downloading many different programs, some that were either too complicated, or wouldn't give me the features I needed. I wanted a specific size. Koolmoves allowed me to specify the size of my flash, and gave me lots of nifty options to make the flash look great. I am very happy with this product.
When I was testing the trial version, a tool bar at the bottom of the page was missing. It took me forever to figure out that something wasn't there. I took the chance and purchased the program, which I felt was reasonbly priced. I just wasn't certain what the end result would be.... would I like the program? I think all trial versions should be full versions. I would have purchased the product much quicker if it had been a full version. That is annoying.
