Flash Decompiler Trillix for Mac 3.1

Flash Decompiler Trillix for Mac 3.1 ($79.95) is now out of beta and while it isn’t something that I have any personal need for, I have a feeling that a number of you may be interested in and so I decided that rather than review it which to be frank would be a bit of a waste of a good license, and in all probability wouldn’t be that in depth as I am no expert I have decided that I will write up the product and offer the license to readers of the site.

No catches. Just leave a comment and I will pick one out at random. I don’t want anything in return, but if you fancy dropping me a review or leaving a comment at a later stage then that would be great.

Flash Decompiler Trillix (former SWF to FLA Converter) converts Adobe Flash SWF files back into FLA format which can easily be edited in native Flash environment.

About

Flash Decompiler Trillix (former SWF to FLA Converter) converts Adobe Flash SWF files back into FLA format which can easily be edited in native Flash environment. Every group of objects such as morphs, shapes, texts, fonts, motions, sounds, ActionScripts, etc. could be placed in separate FLA library groups, which makes using and working with the resulting FLA file much easier.

Moreover, since Trillix version, in addition to SWF to FLA conversion, Flash Decompiler can extract all objects (images, sounds, video, shapes, text, morphs, ActionScripts, etc) used in SWF files into various file formats just in several clicks.

Additionally, you may customize FLA file workspace by enabling/disabling grids, rulers; specifying grid accuracy and so on. Every morph or shape can be placed on different layers to make sure that masks layers are working properly. Flash Decompiler Trillix is the only Mac OS tool to export the whole SWF movie in FLA format that supports Flash MX and ActionScript 2.0.

Several reasons why you may need Flash Decompiler Trillix

Restore your original FLA file from SWF in case you have lost it

No matter how sadly it is to say, but nobody is protected from human errors and hardware faults. In case you should ever lose your original FLA files you may easily restore them from available SWF files using Eltima’s Flash Decompiler Trillix, thereby saving you time and efforts to develop or modify your Flash movies.

Make changes to SWF file when you don’t have its source code (original FLA file)

Once your artwork is converted to SWF file it cannot be edited in Macromedia Flash Studio (the same as with executable files). To be able to make changes to SWF you must have its original source code. Eltima’s Flash Decompiler Trillix OS allows you to extract all resources from SWF and save them in FLA file which is editable. Now, you can easily change Flash objects (modify text or hyperlink, replace sound/image, etc.) and convert it back to SWF file.

Modify protected SWF file

If you forgot the password to your SWF file it is not a problem any longer. Flash Decompiler Trillix bypasses this protection mechanism while decompiling SWF file resources. Once you have converted it to FLA you can set new protection in your favorite Flash editor. Please, note that some SWF files may be copyrighted.

Improve your designer’s skills by learning from others

Rather than trying duplicate or reinvent dazzling animation effects you may find on the net, you may pick into the SWF source code (FLA) to find out how exactly those effects were created and achieve greater results you can’t even think of.

  1. Sounds like a good tool. I have used something similar before but found it to be unreliable. The concept is great, protecting you from loss of .fla and the ability to pull back data from the .swf.

    It has a great use as an educational tool – allowing users to pull apart .swf and see how the original creator built the .swf – much like using View Source for xhtml/css or pulling javascript files into your text editor to see what makes that flashy menu work. There is a huge interest in Flash amongst students in school – where it originates I am not sure, possibly one talented student who shows his friends and word of mouth spreads the interest.

    Unfortunately, Flash and similar tools are under-represented within the curriculum. Trying to book on ‘affordable’ courses is a nightmare. I tried to get myself and one of my team on a course twice last term and both courses folded.

    The key to this being a useful app will be the reliability, however it does seem that they have a lot of bases covered in terms of Flash feature support.

    Raises one or two questions about copyrights material being reverse engineered and then used for gain??!!
