I think at one time there was some mention of the possibility of exporting to .swf...

[quote="Android-Music":3k8xehi2]One question: will there be flash support? This is very important to me. :!:[/quote:3k8xehi2]
I don't remember who pointed this out to me, but:

haven't tried it yet, but looks promising

I think swf import could be also very useful, especially if you wanna import a 60 fps high quality animation but don't wanna make your game size horribly large. I've met this situation once when I wanted to import my 3d spaceship landing animation but I had to reduce the ship size and set the framerate to 12 fps. Lucid, I saw a thread about flixel on Newgrounds recently. Yeah, looks very promising.

the construct devs are obviously programming magicians, but I think the Swf thing wouldn't be a 1.0 feature, it seems really involved, especially since you don't just mean opening and converting to sprites, you mean vector art, which has been suggested many times

if you're richer than me, you could hire someone to develop a plugin for it, I know theres a lot of software that imports or exports flash, so it's not a rare skill

Flixel is good, if you know programming.

Importing an SWF is pretty much out the programming capacity of anyone who has not significantly worked with decompiling them before, programatically, or someone who isn't an Adobe employee.

But isn't there any libraries available that you could use? Or could you make a "flash embed" object, a box which would contain a flash movie in the same way than browsers and media players show flash movies?

Embedding a flash file is very possible, but importing one is nigh on impossible.
