Adobe Flash Professional CS5.5 Software for Windows is a powerful, wide-ranging software application that's used to create immersive, interactive websites and also applications for websites and mobile devices. It delivers video (via the included Adobe Media Encoder) to the web, tablets, TV, and smart phones. Flash Professional also offers an advanced text engine, animation tools employing inverse kinematics, plus industry-leading drawing tools. The software enables you to manage FLA project files that target multiple devices and to create applications that run the same on all platforms (including Android and Apple iOS).
Version CS5.5 introduces several features, including expanded platform and device support, automatic content scaling for different screen (stage) sizes, and a pick whip for previewing and visually adding more than 20 code presets, including one for creating mobile and AIR applications. There's also enhanced copying & pasting of layers and streamlined publishing & document settings. For animation, you can now lock inverse kinematics bones to the stage and set stage-level movement restrictions to selected bones.
