Why is ActionScript 2.0 support removed? While I don't use it actively anymore it's a shame that I have to keep CS6 or older on my computer to open up, view and compile old AS2 projects.

I could understand why it wouldn't compile anymore but upon opening a project removing all code from symbols and components seems so unnecessary.

Will some form of AS2 support be added in the future? Again, I got 60+ AS2 game projects that sometimes still need to be changed or recompiled and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Hi KenneyNL,

We made a hard decision to remove AS2 when Flash Pro CC was being rearchitected, and it will not be added later on. Please see this blog post for more insight into our rationale:

Thank you,

In that case I'll just cancel my Cloud subscription and buy a license for Flash Professional CS6. Too bad, I was really excited for Cloud but if Cloud means that I can't view or compile my old projects then it's a no go. Makes me sad to be honest, I defended the whole Cloud subsciption for months but now it hits me right in the face. I'm sure you just didn't add it because you want to force users to use ActionScript 3.0 but didn't think that many Flash developers have been using AS2 for 10+ years and now half their library is unusable.

What a terrible decision to remove AS2 support! Guys, are you actually developing software for your customers or for the wellbeing of your developers? I have many projects written in AS2 and no, I don't want to keep old Flash versions installed parallel to Flash CC. I expect new version to be backward compatible, without any question! I'm already pissed that in so many cases you removed file support from flash (fxg or illustrator) and other programs, but THIS?

You only seem to care about making your own lives easier, not the lives of your paying customers. I'm shaking my head in lack of comprehension.

Adobe have singlehandedly ruined a once great product with so much potential.

I've been using Flash since the heady days of Macromedia Flash 2/3 in 2000 and it has now become an almost unusable behemoth which is way behind most of its competitors. I saw the Adobe stand and GDC in San Francisco in April, and it was a sad reflection of Adobe as a whole - nothing worked, and none of the employees seemed to care much!

I updated to CC a little while ago thinking that a lot of the stupid bugs in the IDE may have been fixed.. but no, those stupid bugs have not been fixed AND theres a whole load of new ones in there too! And to top it off as previously mentioned, AS2 support has been removed and even little things like the gradient tool becoming completely unusable have really spoilt the development experience.

Flash CC will be the last version of Flash my company uses and I suspect that will be the case for most companies out there who value any sort of productivity in the workplace.

For anyone who is looking for a workaround for any of the ridiculous issues you are experiencing, I suggest you ditch Flash and learn something new (Like Unity). It'll take less time and money to do, and you might actually get some enjoyment whilst using it!

I'm sorry but is that option still available? And if so, where exactly are you supposed to click on flash. In the CC desktop app, an Adobe.com download page?

And does this actually mean that if I purchase the subscription for Adobe Creative Cloud, I will have full access and use of CS6? Because I just signed up for the trial, and I can't find any links or even mentions of CS6 products bundled with CC. Thank you.

I am not sure why the info is hidden away but yes CS6 is included in the CC membership, or was anyway. I already had CS6 installed so it just works. Where to download CS6 now I am not sure. It seems very well hidden. Before you could install the trial versions and then activate through cloud. Now I don´t see any trial versions at all anymore.Here´s the product page anyway http://www.adobe.com/products/cs6.html

Maybe someone from Adobe can enlighten us? Otherwise ask support.

CS6 is still available as a standalone license without CC monthly memebership if you prefer that but won´t get updates other than bugfixes.

Yes, CS6 is available to you, if you have a valid creative cloud subscription for Flash Pro CC.  You can do the following in that case

1) Go to https://creative.adobe.com/

2) Go to the download center link

3) Choose the product Flash Professional

4) Below the "In this version" label there is a dropdown for choosing either Flash Pro CC or Flash Pro CS6. Choose the product that you need and click on the download button to download.

You should also see Flash Pro CS6 in the Creative cloud app that should be available in your machine, if you have CC products.

Thank you! Good info. I never downloaded from the online download center, had missed that part. In the desktop cloud app I can only see those CS6 programmes that are already installed, not any available for download, only uninstalled CC-versions.

I can not see uninstalled CS6 iniside the desktop app, only CC. I see the CS6 that are installed. But I see now that CS6 have to be downloaded from the cloud and can find them via "more information" from the desktop.

The desktop cloud app has some problems, makes Firefox hang. After closing Firefox and then re-open again I get error message "Firefox is already running...", have to close the cloud app, then I can re-open Firefox. Contacted support but no solutions so now I keep the cloud app off mostly.

i don't see an issue.

anyone that's created as2 projects or edits as2 projects already has an as2 project editor.  you don't have to uninstall that old flash version to use flash cc and you can use it side-by-side with flash cc.

a more fundamental issue with adobe flash has been its inability to save fla files more than one version old.  that's required all of us freelancers to keep several versions of flash so we can save-down to a version usable by clients that only have old versions.  so, the revelation that developers need more than one version of flash pro is no news.

anyway, if you're a designer and only create and edit as2 projects, it makes no sense for you to upgrade.  congratulations, you have an unanticipated windfall of saved money if you'd previously planned on upgrading.

The problem right now is that I'm forced to keep Adobe Flash CS6 and Adobe Flash CC installed until Adobe decides to add legacy AS2 support to Flash CC (never).

It's the same issue as you brought up with the backwards compatibility, why have multiple versions of the same software installed? It makes no sense.

If you only use AS2, please go get Flash CS3 because it's the most stable and best version for AS2. But many developers have been using Flash for years and half (if not more) our projects have been made in AS2, I would still like to open them and thus I'm forced to keep two versions of Flash Pro installed until the end of time.

Hi, was looking forward to CC but there´s really too many features dropped that we use. I need to see a complete list of ALL dropped features in one place asap. Your support seems to have no clue.
These are the dropped features (for our "focus", can´t we decide our focus ourselfes?) that we have found so far, please add if there are more dropped features from CS6:

"In order to provide a more focused creative environment, Adobe Flash Professional CC has streamlined its feature set. The following is a list of the notable tools that have been dropped from the previous version:
• Support for ActionScript 1 and 2
• TLF text
• Motion Editor for motion tweens
• Bone tool for inverse kinematics
• Deco tool
• Project panel
• Printing
• Strings panelAdobe FlAsh ProFessionAl CC ClAssroom in A book 3
• Behaviors panel
• Object-level undo
• Spelling panel
• Movie Explorer
• Bandwidth profiler in Test Movie mode
• FXG file import or export
• Kuler panel
• Video Cue Points (but still available in Media Encoder and through ActionScript)
• Closed captioning
• Video playback on Stage with FLV playback component
• Device Central
• Importing SWFs
• Pick whip in the Code Snippets panel
• Auto-Save
• File Info (XMP Metadata)
• Import support for some bitmap formats (BMP, TIFF, AutoCad) and some
sound formats (AIFF, Sound Designer, Around AU, Adobe Sounds Document)
• Publishing projectors"

Also "Flash Pro CC does not support importing of SWC files."

I think the design view-setup with Flashbuilder is also dropped?


Add more and add a link to some kind of complete list of dropped features. Now the surprises are all spread out across many docs and that is not very useful thank you.

Auto-Recovery
When enabled (the default setting), this setting saves a copy of each open file at the specified time interval, in the same folder as the originals. If you have not saved the file yet, Flash saves the copies in its Temp folder. The file names are the same as the originals, with “RECOVER_” added to the beginning of the file name. If Flash Pro quits unexpectedly, a dialog box appears when you restart to allow you to open the auto-recover file. When you exit Flash Pro normally, the auto-recover files are deleted.

It appears that 'Copy Motion to ActionScript3" is also gone -- but if there's no Motion Editor, there's less use for it anyway.   We had actually used the 'Copy Motion to AS' quite a lot and had even built some JS tools around it.

I have tried the Ease Caddy from Ajar and so far it at least can give you a simple eases again.   

Don't mean to be snide, but if you can't even control simple ease-in and ease-out it really sets the animation capabilities back a decade or so.

Hope it comes back!

for our "focus", can´t we decide our focus ourselfes?

Totally agree We should be able to activate or no these features ourselves. It is regrettable to remove major features without consulting customers who use them every day, especially when these features were presented as important developments in last 2 or 3 versions of Flash and are now in the most recent projects.

Please everyone, ask Adobe to put these old features in Flash on this page. If they don't listen to us, many of us will stop our subscription and stay on CS6.

For me, object-level undo, support for AS2 (for old projects), TLF text and SWC imports are very important features that I miss.

Just found out they removed support for SWC imports. This is just madness, now none of my old AS2 projects work but my newer AS3 ones that use physics engines or 3D engines (Away3D) have stopped working too.I really have no clue what Adobe is thinking here, I think we users should somehow bundle our voices and let it be heard.

Does the wishform link actually submit anything to anybody? I haven't used it in a long time, because the last few times I did I gott a bounced email notification in my inbox. If I have something to say about Flash, I'll email someone I know at Adobe, but I think most people don't have that luxury.

i'm pretty sure noone checks those.  and, if there are people checking, the flash checker should probably get a demotion because until a few months ago there wasn't even an obvious flash link.

but maybe, if a report is made and there are a certain number of votes for it, it gets noticed.

Yes, they made a beautiful and powerful tool completely useless. I am sure that this time they self-congratulating on how Flash has evolved. But because they fired the guy whose job it was to read the wishes of the users, they will never know how their customers find aberrant decisions to abandon almost everything that made Flash an animator tool.

They have removed the Component Inspector Panel.

It has big implications for any studios with custom Component panels like mine.

It is now displayed in the Properties Panel in a tiny accordian section....which is bad enough, but it also loses focuses after 1 key press. So textboxes are useless.

Hi guys,

You guys at Adobe, you have always done a exelent job. I love all your software. Your reputation is brilliant.

And I would like to encourage you to add  some dropped features to Flash CC.

I just got installed Dlash CC and I have found out that I can't use it for what I do.

The new features and black interface are all great, I love them. The only thing that bothers me are the features which were dropped from previous versions. It's really something that forces me to use Flash CS6.


I'm a flash game developer and I do stuff all around graphics & animations. I prepare all graphics in Photoshop and then I import it into flash, set instance names, class names, animate everything and so on...

Flash CC is missing a lot of features which were dropped. Big problems comes without following:

Motion Editor:

Without this, we animatiors are not able to do our job properly.

The animations just doesn't look good and natural (yes yes no shit Sherlock )

I have Motion Editor all the time in my projects. I also use it in Aftrer Effects.

You can ask any animator - what would he do without Motion Editor. His answer would be: "Certainly, I wouldn't be able to animate."

Flash is also an animation program. Without Motion Editor - it's impossible for animators around the world to create a good animation.

PSD Import: Missing options for indivitual layers:

In my case, I import all game assets from PSDs.

While importing directly in CS6 I had an ability to:

  • select which layers I want to import
  • add Instance Name for selected layers
  • option of setting the quality individually
  • option for making a movieclip (of a layer or also a folder)
  • option fors setting the center (Registration) of the movie clip

That way I didnt have to set everything in my PSDs everytime I had to import something new. It enabled me to save so much time.

In Flash CC I would have to do everything manually - and somethimes I would cause errors. I would not be able to see everything at one place.

The worst thing from my point of view would be probabbly setting the anchor points for each movie clip. It would up the imported stuff completely. In my case, I have center (registration) of every movieclip in middle, but the import as it is, it aligns the center to left top. And I am not able to change it while importing (please correct me if I'm wrong, I just didn't see it anywhere).


Well, I just hope that all the features were dropped because Adobe guys were building Flash CC form the scratch and just didn't have enough time to finish all features.

So, is there any chance that you will put back the missing features?

Thank you for reading my message.

Regards,

Adam

Hi Adam and others! I just saw that Ajar made this free extension for Flash CChttp://ajarproductions.com/blog/2013/07/03/transferring-tween-eases-to-flash-pro-cc/

"EaseCaddy lets you save, apply, export, and import custom eases (which make animations beautiful and believable)."

It may help some! And hopefully more extensions will come for the missing CC features.

I miss the main tools panel with a one-click icon to save, since autosave is removed too. Quite cumbersome while drawing to either click file-> save or to use keyboard shortcuts for me. I seem to use CS6 90% of the time still allthough I quite like CC too much to change there, but hopefully solutions will turn up.

Thanks Helen,

I ll try it out. Thanks!

If it will work and if there will be also a solution for the "simplified PSD import" - http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1238722 - I might finally be able to use CC

Many thanks!

Well Ajar has a page for "extension requests" so make a request there maybe? Seems like a real useful extension to make.

The removal of the motion editor is an absolute disaster!

feature request - authortime sharing

I notice authortime sharing was removed from flash pro CC. This is the only missing feature holding back my company from upgrading to the newest version of flash pro. I understand adobe bases decisions on the aggregate, but I figured I'd get my request in and hope there are enough similar requests. I started a new thread, and a response pointed me to the feature request form (which I submitted), but another response left me doubtful of the form's relevance.

http://forums.adobe.com/message/5520896

Authortime sharing is the glue that holds our asset pipeline together, and we're very disappointed to see the Authortime Sharing section has been removed from the Symbol Properties dialog box. To be clear, we do NOT use flash pro projects. We only use the ability to share a symbol from a source file (and the "Update automatically" checkbox.)

Any of the artists can make changes in one of the "shared assets" xfls, and those changes will automatically propagate to the production xfls which use those assets before they are compiled (in fact, as soon as they are opened - we use the "Update automatically" checkbox.) It's a huge waste of time (and error-prone) to manually copy over assets from one of the "shared assets" xfls to each production xfl that uses the assets, every time an artist makes a small change.

We thought about using runtime shared libraries for the shared assets, but concluded authortime sharing is better, for 2 main reasons.  First, the artists find it indispensable to be able to preview and work with the shared assets within the production xfls. Second, since the shared assets are compiled into the production swfs, only the 1 swf file needs to be loaded by visitors to our site; we've found that each additional asset load has some small chance of failure. It's quite odd runtime shared libraries were included in flash pro CC, but not authortime sharing.

I hope adobe adds this crucial feature back, or we'll be stuck with CS6, and we really do like the much faster, more responsive experience of CC. I'm curious what gave them the impression authortime sharing is not an important feature. It seems like they're serious about the future of flash pro, and authortime sharing is necessary to use it in our production pipeline. Does anyone else use this feature? Does anyone else know how to get through to adobe with this kind of feedback?
