Flash replacement

May 24, 2018


I pose this question really to staff and/or support....

Can someone tell me what will be supported in Storyline 3 and 360 in replacement to Flash, going forward? Adobe will no longer be supporting or creating Flash after 2020. They have programs such as Animate CC as a suitable replacement.

Thanks for the reply.

HTML5 is the current to future standard that is compatible with browsers and OS's e.g. Windows 10. Flash typically uses a *.swf file extension and is the tool used to create these animations. 

As Flash, as a tool, is being decommissioned, can you advise what other "tools" will be compatible going forward? i.e. what file extensions will be compatible? 

To put into context; my company is looking at using a new tool to create animation and I would like us to continue to use SL as our content development tool. If the tool we want to use is not compatible with SL, then we would have to use another authoring tool. My company specialises in training and development so this, you can imagine, is a big thing.
