Sprout: The Online WYSIWYG Editor for Flash

Sprout is a browser-based, WYSIWYG editor for Flash with an interface reminiscent of Photoshop or Dreamweaver. Designers can use it to create, publish and track Flash widgets, websites and mashups, thereby obviating the need for them to work with programmers who would cost time and money, and who might not execute designs satisfactorily.

Unfortunately the service is still in closed beta, so I was not able to use it firsthand. However, the potential for it (as I derive from the video) is high. If my clients would be able to mash something up in such editor to show me how they want their flash animation to be done – just this would save us a lot of cost and time.

Can’t wait to try it myself.

Don’t know about the previous solution, but since we don’t really care for FlashVars we used a simpler method – after the last Object include the reference to the following JavaScript:

theObjects = document.getElementsByTagName(“object”);
for (var i = 0; i


theObjects[i].outerHTML = theObjects[i].outerHTML;
