Hello. I use animate CC 2020 to create actionscript 3.0 programs which I publish as swf files.
These are almost all educational programs which I use to teach my relatives mathematics using zoom.
 
I have three questions please, as I understand that the flash player will not be supported after December 2020
 
A) After 2020 can I continue to create swf files which I can then play on my computer, not in the browser?
 
B) After 2000 will the swf files played on the computer, a macbook, continue to be transmitted using zoom?
 
C) If the answers to both the above questions are in the affirmative I will continue to use swf files as I am used to actionscript 3.0 and can produce effective and more appealing educational swf files. 
 
If this will no longer be possible after 2020 are there some resources to help me convert the actionscript 3.0 code to javascript so that I can publish the files as html canvas and keep the same functionality and interactivity as much as possible (I know that some features like 3D rotation are not supported on canvas)?
 
 I learned basic javascript and css but find it difficult to change the code from actionscript 3.0 to javascript, even though the codes looks similar.
 
Thank you
Kirk

a) yes

b) contact zoom

c) yes.  there are many js tutorials and info that you can find using any search engine.  further, there's a js helper library that animate uses (easeljs) that you can search-out for even easier (in many situations) coding.  there's no worthwhile "auto" (as3 to js) converter of which i know.
