Top features of Adobe Flash Player 10:
Custom filters and effects:
For cinematic experiences that quickly engage users, create high-performance real-time effects. To process other types of data, such as sound or mathematical functions, asynchronously, the Pixel Bender just-in- time (JIT) compiler can also be used in a separate thread.
For 3D effects, create more intuitive, engaging interfaces by using built-in support. Without being a 3D master, Get started quickly by designing in 2D and easily transforming and animating in 3D. In Adobe® Flash® CS4 Professional software, fast, extremely lightweight, and simple-to-use APIs, along with 3D tools make motion that was previously accessible only to expert users via ActionScript® language or custom third-party libraries available to everyone.
Advanced text support New:
New flexible text engine brings print-quality publishing to the web, so get advantages of it, which is building on more than 25 years of Adobe expertise in typography. Adobe Flash Player 10 delivers advanced, easy-to-integrate typographic and text layout features for rich, sophisticated and innovative typography on the web so people can get more control over text layout by using the Text Layout Framework, an extensible library built on the new text engine in Adobe Flash Player 10. By using device fonts that can now be anti-aliased, rotated, and styled, you can create multilingual web applications or build your own unique text components.
Dynamic sound generation:
To dynamically generate audio and create new types of audio applications such as music mixers and sequencers, real-time audio for games, and even audio visualizes, use enhanced sound APIs. By extracting audio data and supplying it to the sound buffer, work with loaded MP3 audio at a lower level. Through the Pixel Bender JIT compiler, Process, filter, and mix audio in real time is done to extend creative freedom beyond the visual experience.
Drawing API Enhanced:
With restyleable properties, 3D APIs, and a new way of drawing sophisticated shapes, perform runtime drawing more easily without having to code them line by line. Developers can tweak parts of curves, change styling, replace parts, and use custom filters and effects, delivering improved throughput, creative control, and greater productivity. While adding memory and improving performance, enhancements to the Drawing API add the z dimension, real perspective, textured meshes in 3D space, a retained graphics model, read/write rendering, and triangle drawing with UV coordinates.
With the use of the hardware processing power of the graphics card, paint SWF files into the browser and accelerate compositing calculations of bitmaps, filters, blend modes, and video overlays faster than would be performed in software.
Vector data type:
For better performance, efficiency, and error checking of data, use the new typed array class.
With streams that automatically adjust to changing network conditions, show exceptional video. To provide a better streaming experience, leverage new quality-of-service metrics.
Speex audio codec:
A low-latency alternative is offered for voice encoding by Speex voice codec, which is the new, high fidelity and open source so take advantage of it. ADPCM, HE-AAC, MP3, and Nellymoser audio are also supported by Flash Player.
File upload and download APIs:
