Smile Adobe shutting off flash

Is it true that adobe is shutting off flash and introducing a new software called animation in its place?

One of mine graphic designer friend was telling me about this. How much of this is true?

According to this article: Adobe to kill off Flash in January’s Creative Cloud update It has been in the works for over a year.
Quote:
...Adobe's embrace of HTML5 has created its first big casualty: Flash. Not the Flash Player browser plugin—Adobe said in 2012 that it would continue supporting the plugin for the next five to 10 years—but Flash Professional, the main authoring tool used to create Flash animations.

With the Creative Cloud update coming in January, Flash Professional will sport a new name: Adobe Animate CC. It will still be able to produce Flash (SWF) files and will also continue to support Adobe's standalone AIR runtime, but it also supports building for HTML5 Canvas and WebGL. Adobe says that a third of all content produced in Flash Professional is now HTML5-based, showing that the shift away from its proprietary browser technology is well underway. Flash Professional isn't just for Flash; it's for all kinds of timeline-based interactive animations. The name change makes sense...

So it's just undergoing a name change. They should also cut out the ability to make flash animations. In a HTML5 world, people shouldn't be making flash content anyway!

They've just released Flash Player 26, so I guess the answer is no.

Browser flash play really sucks, they should shut it down, or at least work on an optimization. Frequent updates are also annoying.

You should check Creative Cloud. You don't see any update on Flash.

Flash & The Future of Interactive Content

Official announcement from Adobe:
Quote:
...Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

Several industries and businesses have been built around Flash technology – including gaming, education and video – and we remain committed to supporting Flash through 2020, as customers and partners put their migration plans into place. Adobe will continue to support Flash on a number of major OSs and browsers that currently support Flash content through the planned EOL. This will include issuing regular security patches, maintaining OS and browser compatibility and adding features and capabilities as needed. We remain fully committed to working with partners, including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla to maintain the security and compatibility of Flash content. [To see each partner’s announcement on this news, click on the links inside each partner name.] In addition, we plan to move more aggressively to EOL Flash in certain geographies where unlicensed and outdated versions of Flash Player are being distributed...

Good riddance! 2020 is still too far away though. Should've been end of 2018 to discourage people from hanging on to it.

Flash has become 'Animate', which provides a very similar and familiar authoring environment, but it spits out HTML5 canvas. I think it holds a lot of potential and is still very useful for a bit of motion graphics work exported to video.

I hope so. The authoring environment of Flash was quite hard to beat when it came to producing motion graphics work fast and efficiently.

The problem isn't Adobe dumping flash, it's that every major browser (desktop and mobile) are shunning it and even considering it a security risk and a CPU hog that they don't enable it by default. With the maturity of HTML 5 there isn't any real reason to use Flash besides stubbornness.

The inevitable death of Flash (or at least its monopoly) was sealed when Steve Jobs said it would never be in the iPhone. And because Google had, had a storied history in the past of waiting then copying Apple's move, followed suit. Yes, there are ways around this from a user perspective, but its clear to me no company, besides Adobe, likes the Flash Player.

Honestly, when Steve Jobs announced this i was very happy to see he "gets it". And with that Flash will eventually end up in the trash heap as RealPlayer.

Btw, dont get me wrong, i am NOT talking about the authoring Environment. I am talking about the clunky player plugin.

It's true that flash is a resource hog. Sometimes even seemingly simple code/loop driven animations couldn't reach more than 20fps and things ground to a halt. My old computers could handle the latest Call of Duty games at 1080p better than they could some flash applications!

Unfortunately, too many people also really abused the technology by creating the over-intensive and clunky interfaces that gave flash a bad rep. If there were some kind of industry and legal restrictions on people using the tool, like there are in say... the medical profession... it might have made it!

I remember when i wanted to create my own games and talked with a "point and click games" designer. It seemed to me that flash is the perfect way/software to create those games, but he told me to watch out, and never use the Flash. The reason is that tablets, and smartphones do not use Flash.
They had to recreate all their games in other software.
