we have created a converter that is able to convert any swf animation into a generic format that then can be easily played on Sparrow or any other framework.
Check out our demo video:
We decided to port our very big FB game Pet City to mobile.
Our game has >300 very complex character animations we need full control of.
Also it has >1000 animated items (furniture, clothes).
We decided to go with Stage3D but after all it showed perfomance that was still not high enough.
Right now we develop the app using Obj C.
Most important is that we could not quit using Flash CS since its a super powerful 2D animation and graphics editor. The best ever.
All our processes are built based on utilizing Flash CS as a creation tool. It gives us speed, flexibility and outstanding abilites.
We had to build a converter that would allow us to develop animations in Flash CS and then play them on any other system, framework or device outside of flash player or any other Adobe framework that natively supported swf-s.
We had to learn how to convert fla/swf into some open generic format.
Guys, what do you think?
