[Discussion] What do you use for flash development?

Post icon  Posted 14 December 2011 - 07:29 AM

There are many different options available to create flash applications, some good and some not so good. Now with HaXe and Stage3D flash is becoming kind of exciting again.

What is your development environment for flash and AIR applications? Why do you like it?

I currently use FDT 5 which is excellent for everything I've been doing so far. It requires a little more tweaking to get a good workflow but when you do it just all fits perfectly.

I've only just started with Flash using Flex 4.0 and FlashDevelop 4.0, with the idea of creating Flash based games for the web. So far I like the FlashDevelop IDE. FDT 5 looks interesting from the quick peek I took, had to do a search for it.

I agree that Stage3D is pretty exciting.

I'm knocking up a nice framework for stage3D, there are lots lof libraries and engines that already use it but I really want to do the low level stuff to wring out the best performance. I'm finding the AGAL pretty user friendly compared to other shader languages I have used, I probably wouldn't be saying that if it was my first time writing shaders though.

I use FlashDevelop. It's a way better actionscript editor than Flash CS 5.5.

What's tricky is getting the Flex SDK all wired up so you don't need CS 5.5 to build the project and compile the SWF. I haven't gotten the hang of that yet, so I still jump into CS 5.5 to add things to library and build the swf.
