May explain your debugging problems Indie.
Please don’t be confused. I didn’t have any “debugging problems” because I know exactly what I’m doing…
I know what Swish is and how it operates. I am referring to exporting Swish files (.swi) for use in Flash (.fla), not the other way around (because there is absolutely no reason to use Swish if you have Flash). It is possible to export a .fla file from Swish, but the file is garbage. So, it’s a one-way street.
You can create .swf files easily, and you can make .swi files, but they can only be edited in Swish. In the situation I was referring to above, you had someone make a file in Swish, then try to export it as a .fla and pass it off to a professional Flash programmer (me) to make some changes. It was junk. It cost my company money, because I had to re-make the file.
That said, if you like it, Argent, then by all means go for it. I’m not saying it doesn’t have it’s uses; I’m just sharing my experience with it. If all you want to do is make some .swf files and never edit them in Flash itself, then you’re probably fine.
