Adobe ‘Project Wallaby’ converts Flash into HTML

Thursday, 24 March 2011 14:59pm

Adobe Labs has released an experimental technology designed to convert Flash animation files into HTML, potentially improving their accessibility.

Wallaby was designed particularly for devices that do not support Flash such as the iPhone and iPad.

Wallaby works by first converting the Flash animation to HTML, then allowing the content to be edited with an appropriate authoring tool, such as Dreamweaver. The output can be viewed using most modern web browsers.

Wallaby is not a final product and is still in the testing and validation phase. It is not determined at this stage if it will be developed further, or incorporated into other Adobe products. The current version, Prerelease 1, can be downloaded from the Adobe Labs Wallaby webpage.
