Flash Player is a cross-platform browser plug-in that delivers breakthrough Web experiences to over 99% of Internet users.
3D effects New
Create more intuitive, engaging interfaces using built-in support for 3D effects. Get started quickly without being a 3D master by designing in 2D and easily transforming and animating in 3D. Fast, extremely lightweight, and simple-to-use APIs, along with 3D tools in Adobe Flash CS4 Professional software, make motion that was previously accessible only to expert users via ActionScript language or custom third-party libraries available to everyone.
Custom filters and effects New
Create high-performance, real-time effects for Cinematic experiences that quickly engage users. With new Adobe Pixel Bender, the same technology behind many filters and effects in Adobe After Effects software, these dynamic and interactive effects can be used both in production with After Effects CS4 and live with Flash Player 10. The Pixel Bender just-in- time (JIT) compiler can also be used to process other types of data, such as sound or mathematical functions, asynchronously in a separate thread.
Advanced text support New
Take advantage of a new, flexible text engine that brings print-quality publishing to the web, building on more than 25 years of Adobe expertise in typography. Gain more control over text layout using the Text Layout Framework, an extensible library built on the new text engine in Adobe Flash Player 10, which delivers advanced, easy-to-integrate typographic and text layout features for rich, sophisticated and innovative typography on the web. Create multilingual web applications using device fonts that can now be anti-aliased, rotated, and styled, or build your own unique text components.
