Announcing Electric Rain Harmony - Coming Summer 2007
A New Flash SWF to XAML-markup Converter Tool for Microsoft WPF and Silverlight Application Development
Electric Rain Harmony provides designers and developers with a fast and easy way to convert existing Flash SWF files (graphics and simple animations*) into Microsoft-based XAML mark-up for immediate use in the Microsoft WFP and Silverlight (formally WPF/E) platforms.
Don't start from scratch - Soon you'll be able to reuse and repurpose the many years of Flash assets you've built up, including banner ads and Web animations to work with Microsoft's new WPF-based and Silverlight graphics technologies. Harmony lets you quickly and easily convert this important assets into XAML mark-up that is WPF and Silverlight friendly – erasing the need to recreate assets from scratch.
Harmony v1.0 goes beyond frame-by-frame conversion by converting complete Flash SWF files focused on graphical shape definitions and simple animations into native XAML animations. Note that Harmony does not convert Flash ActionScript code.*
