The program now supports Bezier point-to-point drawing and manipulation of artwork created with both the Pen and existing natural drawing tools. This means that you can create effective vector-based content without having to leave the Flash program. Flash 5 also offers Web-Native printing, so you can view content and applications suitable for the screen and output a separate design suitable for print. The audio features have been bolstered with full support for MP3.
One of the best new features of Flash 5 is the introduction of Smart Clips, with many time saving implications for anyone developing interactive forms, lessons or questionnaires. Smart Clips can range from standard user interface elements to complex interactions, such as multiple choice questions with variable responses for training applications. User groups are already releasing Smart Clips on the Web for free use.
