SWF files are created with Flash authoring software. Various objects, such as sound files, images, action scripts, video files etc., are used for their development. All of these elements form a complete SWF file after compilation.
It would be fair to state that users are highly likely to face various problems working with Flash technology. One of them is trying to decode SWF
. This may be needed to improve the SWF or create a new one on its basis. But very often it happens so that the source FLA is lost or obfuscated. In such cases the most acceptable way out is applying a Flash decoder.
