Not sure if the topic fits here, otherwise you may move it to an appropriate section.

This is a very urgent issue for a lot of people. Requesting that Adobe finally create an official program to convert AS2 to HTML5 in a 1:1 manner. No more 3rd party suggestions, they don't work, period. Adobe made flash, they should have everything they need to make such a converter.

A lot of us are left scratching our heads here. See I was never savvy with AS2 to begin with. I simply downloaded a website template, dissected it (learned how it worked) and made it into my own. I improved it from the original, changed a lot of things, revamped it or w/e. It's basically mine now and I'm comfortable using it... before that though, I would NEVER have known how to build such a site from the ground up. It would have been outright impossible.

That's where a lot of us stand now, where HTML5 only makes sense when you've followed a tutorial or viewed some instructions in the template. The know-how is isolated only to those templates and don't apply anywhere else. My site's template doesn't exist in HTML5, there's no way for me to know how to make it from scratch. The only solution is to make a converter. I hear AS2 is very similar to JavaScript, I tried learning some of it (again it only made sense isolated to those tutorials and not as a build from the ground up), but at least it shows that the conversion is 100% doable, IF they make this program. Can we get an elevated request to the devs at Adobe to make such a program?

After 20 years I still believe that As2/As3 language is much more fun that javascript, much faster to develop and debug, more cross browser etc.. I just hope the new tech standards will be a real step to progress and evolve in web development without to forget all the code done tha last 20 years
