With Flash CS4 Professional, animating is easier and more powerful than ever before. New object-based animation allows you to easily modify animations. Presets help you get started quickly and repurpose your work — you can even save your animations and then apply them to different objects. Importing options are expanded with new XFL file import. And 3D transformation, inverse kinematics, and procedural modeling help you create highly expressive and engaging experiences. Object-based animation
