FLASC is a design time Flash extension that gives you a powerful GUI interface to help create and run MTASC compatible batch files. This allows developers to compile swf’s at a MUCH greater speed than with the Flash IDE (MMC).

FLASC might work for you if you answer yes to any of these scenarios:

* You ever had an FLA from a designer that was just loaded with hard to publish assets like embedded FLV’s, MP3‘s, bitmaps etc that took 5-10 minutes to publish.

* You have to work in the Flash IDE out of choice or not.

* You don’t necessarily work on RIA’s, but interactive/marketing sites with large teams of designers/developers.

* With all the apps you have open, having yet another work flow like Eclipse is not really appealing.

I had a project recently where I had to make visual changes to a designer’s FLA at points throughout the entire development, so I couldn’t just close Flash.

With MMC, the compile times were up in the 20+ seconds. By that time, you’re yelling at the screen and loosing concentration. With FLASC it was taking 1.2 seconds.

That’s right, 1.2 friggin’ seconds!!

Can I get a ROCK ON \m/ ?!?
