The Adobe Corporation has consecutively released Flash CS3 (V9) and Flash CS4 (V10) after the Flash 8, and this was undoubtedly good news to all the Flash fans. Now, here comes more exciting news —- the long-awaited function that importing and editing SWF files created by Flash CS3 (V9), Flash CS4 (V10) is recently realized in Sothink SWF Quicker V4.5.
As the leading Flash SWF editor in the market, Sothink SWF Quicker always keeps up with the latest technical updates in the Flash area. It is the best Flash animation editor to edit SWF files or create Flash animations from scratch. Sothink SWF Quicker supports applying plenty of built-in animated effects to Flash movie elements; provides quick-start templates to make Flash Albums, Banners, Navigation Buttons and Slide Shows easily. This Flash animation maker also allows you to export Flash movies to SWF, EXE, GIF, or AVI, which helps you to enjoy colorful Flash arts more conveniently.
When editing a SWF of Flash CS3 (V9) or Flash CS4 (V10), you can edit almost all elements of the SWF file, such as adding or changing texts and images, assigning new URL, adding ActionScript to control the animation more precisely, etc. The latest version (V4.5) of Sothink SWF Quicker supports ActionScript 3.0. And in the previous version, it has supported ActionScript 1.0 and 2.0 already.

â€œThinking in HD
â€¦This year we are starting to see the first wave of HD video converter/editors for easy Blu-Ray or AVCHD creation. One such tool is from Sothink called HD Movie Maker. The first thing I noticed about this software was the well laid out interface that didn’t look to overly done. Everything is where it is needs to be.
Basically here are the steps involved to create a Blu-Ray movie:
Now simply walk away or go to bed and when you get back to the computer you will have a disc ready to watch in your favorite player. Note: My first test took about 4 hours to burn a 2 hour avi upcoverted to AVCHD which took the full 4.38 single layer of the DVD. I am please to see that the quality from the original avi to the DVD was dramatic.
Also note that this software is simply a HD Video Converter/Burner, you can not author/edit video.
The ease of use and final video quality of the discs are what is impressive of HD Movie Maker. So far this is one of the easiest HD Video apps I have used this year.â€ (Read more reviews)
