Sothink SWF Decompiler can convert SWF Flash to FLA file format, thus allows open with Adobe Flash for further editing.
When open the converted FLA file with Adobe Flash, the original layers sometimes cannot be maintained.

As a Flash animation developer, it is always good to study how other web designers developing Flash especially when I see some interesting Flash animation on the Internet. Sothink SWF Decompiler allows me to convert SWF Flash to FLA and open in Adobe Flash program to analyze and study.

I have been using Sothink SWF Decompiler since the version of MX2005. I also tried other similar SWF converters on the market, Sothink SWF Decompiler has the best performance in terms of speed, easy to use and accuracy of converted FLA file. The speed of converting SWF files are promptly. When a SWF file was selected in the Explorer Window, Sothink SWF Decompiler analyzed it and separated into different resources, e.g. Shapes, Image, Sprite, Action, etc., in just a few seconds. Moreover the interface is clean and easy to navigate. A new user should be able to use Sothink SWF Decompiler in a very short time.

As a web designer, the main benefits of using Sothink SWF Decompiler are mainly:
1. edit the converted FLA file
2. extract the SWF elements
3. study the codes of ActionScript

Edit Converted FLA File
Sothink SWF Decompiler has been helping me a lot in creating Flash animation, especially a talking Avatar website. The talking Avatar that created with other Flash program has only a plain background. Therefore I have to convert the Avatar SWF file to FLA file with Sothink SWF Decompiler. Then I opened the converted FLA file with Adobe Flash program, add a different background layer (street scenery, beach scenery, etc...), to the talking Avatar with different stories. Sothink SWF Decompiler can really speed up my daily animation job!

Extract SWF Elements
This is a wonderful feature of Sothink SWF Decompiler. When the converted FLA file open in Adobe Flash, the Movie Clips on the stage can easily be copied to other Flash projects, edit and use. Of course the extracted Movie Clips have to edit (for example, tranform, scale and apply some color effects) before use in other Flash projects.

Study Codes of ActionScript
The extracted ActionScript codes are quite messy sometimes. Actually the ActionScript cannot be simply copied and pasted to other Flash projects for use. However, if you have some experience with ActionScript programming before, this is the best way to learn how other web designers do animation with ActionScript.


Sothink SWF Decompiler is a useful and great tool for Flash designers. Sothink SWF Decompiler can speed up the daily animation job when using Adobe Flash with other Flash programs.
