I was looking around for a software to create a SWF based Presentation, and came across SWF Maestro. This is not free, but it does has a trial version. I thought of giving it a try, and downloaded it. And let me say, I am really impressed with this software. Even though this site is just for Freeware, I still decided to cover SWF Maestro here.
SWF Maestro is nice software to create SWF based Games, Applications, and Presentations. Apart from SWF files, you can also include other type of files in your projects, like XML, FLV, MP3, JPG, etc. This greatly enhances the capabilities of this software, and lets you create really versatile and professional games and applications.
SWF Maestro has some really nice features. Here are a few of those:
The innovative nature of SWF Maestro’s compiler lets you easily create and modify applications. Apart from that, SWF Maestro has a great feature that it stores all the settings in a separate project file for each project. So, you can easily come back to any project and easily modify the settings.
Protect your Files
This feature will really appeal to professional Flash based application developers. When you create a complex application with a Flash software, then sometimes the files are extracted to some temporary folder when people use those applications. This can potentially expose your hard written code to other people. SWF Maestro takes care of this by compiling all your files in one executable file. This ensures that when someone runs applications compiled with SWF Maestro, the files are not extracted anywhere.
Create Applications with Transparency Support
SWF Maestro has very good transparency support. You can create windowless applications, and make them look exactly how you want. You can control transparency level to create a unique gaming experience.
Very Elaborate Help
SWF Maestro has a very good help support. There is even context sensitive help that guides you about each setting and feature. This makes it really easy to get started with this software.
Apart from these, SWF Maestro also has following features:
- Specify any caption for the window.
- Create a window of custom size, and also make it draggable. You can even create applications with Full Screen support.
- You can create applications with subdirectories to get more flexibility.
- SWF Maestro lets you preview your application even before you compile it.
All these features make SWF Maestro a really useful tool.
Apart from Games, Applications, and presentations, you can use SWF Maestro also for creating SWF Projectors, and online training courses. If you are professional SWF based applications developer, you really need to try out this great software. You can start by downloading Trial Version.
