Swift-Generator FAQ

  • Is it Flash 4 compatible?
    Completely supported !
  • My customers do not want to display the Swift-Generator logo. How do I proceed?
    Swift-Generator remains free unless you don't want to display the logo. Otherwise, check out registration procedure. If the logo color conflicts with a designed page, you can change or adapt the logo using the FLA file available on the site. Do not change size. Link to the Swift-Tools main page.
  • Is it possible to generate GIF?
    Swift-Generator produces Flash data only. There are three reasons, the first one is that Flash is now available on major platforms (this argument is weak, I know), the second is a matter of patent (I don't want Swift-Generator to rely on expensive licenses), the third one is that image generation implies a Flash rendering engine, this would cause the tool to be much bigger than it is, and it is not suitable for server cpu load.
  • It does not seem to work with my Template files. What happens?
    Your files are generated with Flash3 with Macromedia Generator addon installed. Swift-Generator is not an Macromedia Generator replacement, it is just another tool to generate Dynamic Flash movies.
  • Is Swift-Generator Y2K compliant?
  • Accentuated characters seem to have disappeared after generation?
    I get unexpectedly extremely spaced text characters after generation. Your template file has been generated from a Mac. Unfortunately you will have to create your template file on Windows.
  • Why not Open Source?
  • Who are you? How can you make money with a free tool?
    Money is not my main motivation. I work alone on this product, I do this on my spare time just to provide masses with server side Flash technology. Here is a little bit more about me.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
