"Wallaby" is the codename for an experimental technology that converts the artwork and animation contained in Adobe® Flash® Professional (FLA) files into HTML. This allows you to reuse and extend the reach of your content to devices that do not support the Flash runtimes. Once these files are converted to HTML, you can edit them with an HTML editing tool, such as Adobe Dreamweaver®, or by hand if desired. You can view the output in one of the supported browsers or on an iOS device.

Please note that not all Flash Professional features are supported in the HTML5 format. The
What's New
Version 0.9d (prerelease 1):

Installer

  • Wallaby is delivered as a 32-bit application for Windows and Mac.
Browser Issues
  • Wallaby is designed to emit HTML5 files compatible with Webkit based browsers.
  • The only supported Webkit browsers at this time are Chrome and Safari on OSX, Windows, and iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod). Because Wallaby uses Webkit specific animation primitives, animation will not work and has not been tested on other browsers.
Multi-Browser Issues
  • There is a known Webkit issue with complex timeline animations that crashes all Webkit browsers. This seems to increase in frequency with complex animations and on slower devices. It is rare for simple animations. Webkit fixed this bug on 1/26/2011 (http://trac.webkit.org/changelist/76708) but is not clear when this fix will end up in Chrome and Safari browsers.
  • We have logged and are tracking several Webkit bugs. Most of these issues are not visible because of changes to the HTML/CSS/SVG content but this often results in non intuitive conversion of the original content.
IOS - IPad, IPhone & IPod Touch
  • We have tested with iOS 4.2
  • Prior iOS versions have known masking issues with Wallaby generated HTML files.
  • Zooming in and out can cause odd artifacts in the browser. This is a bug in the browser.
  • Masked artwork sometimes displays a faint border around the masked area. This is a bug in the browser.
Chrome
  • We have tested with Chrome 8.0.552.215
  • Several issues (undocumented) have been observed in prior versions.
Safari
  • We have tested with Safari 5.0.3
  • A few known animation issues with 'static' content dropping.

this program only extracts about 10% of a Flash site. In my usage of about 70 imbedded items there were 62 failures. no audio, no motion, no images, no buttons. Stability? "Hello World" doesn't crash either.

no wonder there are no reviews:

I do not wan't to purchase Adobe® Flash® Professional just to create HTML5 content, this is very closed & locked - not very open.

So don't.

What the hell kind of review is that, anyway? I don't like Flash any more than you do, but the purpose of a starred review is to indicate how well a program does what it claims to do.

If you want to express your opinion that a program shouldn't exist in the first place, then comment, by all means, but to rate a program that you haven't even used just renders the rating system here at MacUpdate useless for those who are trying to find the best tools for what they need to do.

Did it not occur to you that there may be folks out there looking to convert _existing_ Flash content to HTML5? It's not clear that you're doing your cause any favors by trying to dissuade them from looking at this potential solution.

Wannabe HTML5. Great idea for code that would rather be open to greater access.
