Sothink SWF Easy
Sothink SWF Easy is a professional software application whose purpose is to help you create Flash animations, banners, greeting cards, or photo albums, while allowing you to choose between a wide range of banner templates and animated Flash effects.

The working area is divided into several panels, such as Scene, which is used for organizing your document thematically (e.g. introduction, loading message, and credits), Timeline (for adding effects to elements), Shape, the place where you can draw shapes and apply effects, Properties (for setting the properties of an element: background, frame rate, size), Resource files, and Component, which enables you to insert radio buttons or check boxes.
Sothink SWF Easy offers support for various built-in effects for helping you animate your text, shapes, and images. Plus, you can edit the effects, add multiple ones to one element, as well as stack multiple effects for generating a completely new one.Thanks to its wizard mode, you can create a normal album, flip album, banner, or navigation buttons in just a few minutes.
What’s more, the tool offers support for various editing tools, such as line, pencil, square, and circle, and gives you the possibility to color elements, tweak their position and size, insert images (e.g. BMP, JPEG, SVG, EMF), embed rich-formatted text, as well as arrange your objects with the aid of a ruler, grid, and alignment operations.
