KoolMoves is a capable Flash authoring tool that allows you to create animated banners, slideshows, media players and more.
The program is easy to use, so you don't have to be a Flash expert to get started (simple wizards walk you through the process of creating slideshows or banners, for instance).
And it comes with plenty of clip art items and prebuilt templates, too - 40 media player skins, 28 web interface templates, 343 clip art elements and buttons, and more - so you don't need design skills, either, you can simply use what's already there.
If that's not enough then you're able to import and reuse existing SWF movies, Flash videos, 3D models (3DS, OBJ, ASE, M2D) and animated GIFs. KoolMoves includes a complete set of drawing tools to help customise your work. Or you might apply a host of text and image-related effects to give your animations a professional touch.
Please note, the Save function is disabled in this trial version. You can still export a movie to use it online, though (File > Export Movie) or view it in a local browser (Play > Play in Web Browser), so there are plenty of opportunities to see just what KoolMoves can do. And of course once you've purchased a licence the Save restriction will be removed.
Version 9.9.4 brings (changelog):
- Added ability to apply motion script effects to vector shapes in addition to images and text for Html5 export.
- Added ability to apply 8 Html5 filter effects to images, vector shapes, and text. Many of the filter parameter values can be easily varied by key frame.
- Added caching of symbol shapes in exported Html5 for greater rendering performance.
- Changed Html5 export dialog so export file name is not initially blank (proposed file name is based on the project file name or the previously used file name).
- Fixed (or at least improved) positioning of text with css aimation effects.
- Fixed (or at least improved) positioning of text and images with css aimation effects on a jQuery Mobile page with a header.
- Fixed positioning of objects requiring divs (e.g. objects with css animation effects) for responsive design Html5 export -- a position:relative was missing in the canvasholder div.
- Upgraded to latest Visual Studio version. Changed compiler setting to optimize for application speed.
