Flash developers: export to HTML5 with new Swiffy extension

By Esteban de la Canal, Software Engineer

We launched Google Swiffy in July. Swiffy enables you to convert Flash SWF files to HTML5. One of our main aims for Swiffy is to let you continue to use Flash as a development environment, even when you’re developing animations for environments that don’t support Flash.

To speed up the development process, we’ve built the Swiffy Extension for Flash Professional. The extension enables you to convert your animation to HTML5 with one click (or keyboard shortcut). The extension is available for both Mac and Windows, and it uses Swiffy as a web service, so you’ll always get our latest and greatest conversion. Information about the conversion process is shown within Flash Professional.

You can download the Swiffy Extension from the Google Swiffy site. We hope it will streamline your workflow when you use Flash and Swiffy to produce HTML5 animations. Please let us know how well it works for you via our feedback page.


Esteban de la Canal is a Software Engineer on the Swiffy team. He also enjoys game development, particularly weird-looking snake-like games in Flash.

  7. Great stuff, but what baffles me is that Double Click (by Google) doesn't support HTML5 ad banners exported by Swiffy. :-S Any solution to this?

  9. Why not directly create HTML5 animation in the cloud (in your browser)? Check this out:

  12. Wow, the game has changed with the announcement that Adobe is no longer supporting development for FLASH for mobile devices or TV…it is focusing on youtube html5 player and Adobe AIR apps instead….the news got around the game development community quickly. I think the market penetration of mobile devices like the iPad, iPhone, and iTouch from Apple being a merket leader who doesn’t support FLASH made a true impression on developers whose clients pages were losing views by this audience. Comsider Apple’s leadership history introducing CD ROM’s fiirst in computers, dropping the beige look of computers, introucing the iMAc, iTunes, Quicktime, and Jobs support of Blu Ray at Disney helped set standards in many industries…
