CS5, eh?

Okay, I have a question for you:

When you go to "File -> Save As", then (presumibly below the field for "file name") there should also be a "file type"-selection.

Can you also "downgrade" the file, and save as "Flash CS4"  rather than as "Flash CS5" file? And if so, can you also get the option to save as "Flash CS3"?

:?

I'd really like to know. ^^;

That's very strange. I've seen people offer the same resource-character model file for different versions of Flash, which would be impossible to achieve if you couldn't downgrade. :O

I was more curious if Flash CS5 allowed to downgrade straight to CS3, or if one would need both CS5 and CS4 to turn a CS5 into a CS3 file. ^^;

Perhaps I shouldn't have used the term "downgrade". :shrug:
Eh. Maybe an example will clear things up: [link]

Wow, that downgrade instruction helps. Unfortunately, Flash CS5 is my first software that I ever use, but thanks anyway.Sweating a little...

Hehe, hard to believe I myself have been using Flash 8 for 8 years now - and only a week ago I stumbled into a feature I never even knew was there. :XD:

Flash 8 has served me well ... though recently, I've been oggling a feature introduced with CS4, and improved later in CS5, called "bone-tool".

Basically lets you turn your drawings into ragdolls, which saves you time animating their limbs ... like, you grab their hand, and move it, the entire arm moves with it accordingly... Can even make the drawing "bend" smoothly. Like a cat arching it's back.

Ah, here's a great example: [link] :wow:

Gaah, I want that tool, it looks soooo usefull! :doh:

Sure wish Flash 7 had a bone tool - it'd stop my characters' limbs flying off when they motion-tween from one extreme to the next... :XD:;;

I, for one, still use Flash 8. :nod:

...Though I'm really oggling that "bone"/"skeleton"-tool that CS4 introduced... :O_o:

That, and I'd like to make use of all those "pony flash puppets" floating around the internet [link], but alas, those are made in higher versions of flash. :roll:

Might be possible to downgrade them to Flash 8, though I'd need to use CS5 or 6 to even open them to do that in the first place. :shrug:

Can't really buy a higher version anymore anyway, not unless I want to pay ~300+ € on eBay. :shrug:

Ain't a student no more, so no student license or me. :(
