Introduction for Flash Optimizer for macOS

Flash Optimizer is a powerful, feature-rich SWF compression utility. It easily reduces SWF files size up to 80% thanks to amazing algorithms of vectors, shapes, morphing, Z-buffer, fonts and other optimizations, thus saving considerable amount of traffic and loading time. Unlike any other similar software it manages to optimize not only a separate part of your Flash movie, but the whole SWF, including curves, zero-objects, ZLib optimization and a whole lot more advanced techniques. More than 50 of such separate compression options, both predefined and customizable, give you full control over the optimization process, meeting an optimum compression at no quality loss. Optimization process preview feature will help you choose proper compression settings for a particular movie. SWF info button which shows you details on Flash movies – such as size in bytes, percentage of each kind of resources (shapes, pictures, videos, actions etc.) and general size of original and optimized files is handy as well.

Why optimize Flash?

What’s the need of compressing already small enough vector graphics? Is there any way to compress what is already compressed by specialists from Macromedia? Why is it needed anyway?

The answers to these questions can be simple and rather complicated at the same time. And the only truth will be that Flash files optimization is really worthy, though requires some skills with Flash Optimizer.

The main purpose of any optimization is to allevate the process, simplify the output or match some criteria. In web terms it is speed, interactivity, reliability and quality. And this is just what Flash Optimizer works for. Sometimes Flash websites can take up to several “cups of coffee” to download. Flash banners proved to be much more efficient than the regular ones, but still far slower to download. Most Internet connection methods (dial-up, the most widespread today, among them) still require you to save every byte of traffic. And this is right where Flash Optimizer can be of a great help and save a substantial amount of time, traffic, server space to everyone who uses Flash at their websites and everyday work.

Flash vector format is probably the most ideal medium between quality and optimum file objects layout. Optimization is one of the most difficult programming problems to be solved. That is why Macromedia does its work creating the most progressive interactive Internet solutions, and thus leaving some space to other companies for Flash authoring development. Flash Optimizer uses a series of mathematics methods to optimize the output format of Flash. The main purpose of such optimization is to compress Flash files with the least quality loss, optimize them for faster download and provide you with the possibilities you’ve never experienced.

Flash Optimizer manages to compress SWF files up to 60-70%! And you have the total control over each and every optimization option, which allows you to reach the most effective compression specifically for your Flash files. Finally in two clicks you will reduce the file size twice or even more. Now, is it worth that? Such amazing compression is possible, why not use it? Flash Optimizer is the right software to reduce your website size (and server load in turn) and easily increase your profits.

Lose bytes – not income…

Demo version limitations

Please, note that demo version saves files in monochrome (grayscale) mode only. Thus, optimized file can be smaller in size than the one optimized with registered version which preserves colors.
