I need to build swfs on the fly on the server-side and am looking for some
advice on what's the best technology to use. The script will need to 1) pull
in various swf assets (all vector graphics, no logic) from the filesystem,
2) create a new swf based off a template that includes the other swfs as
movie clips and 3) insert some minor customizations such as color tints and
masks and possibly some actionscript.
>From my research I've come up with the following solutions:
There is a server-side flex mode. But Adobe recommends against using it in a
production enviornment. I'm afraid it's memory footprint maybe pretty hefty.
This seems like a good solution, but is it not in active development
anymore? Also I would prefer not to have to spawn an extra process with each
request so a php solution would be better?
Does anyone know about this function? Does it create movieclips from
I see that haXe allows you to create php scripts that create flash movies.
But does it allow you to pull in existing swf movies to include in the movie
I know that all of this could be done on the client-side. The reason for
compiling these swfs on the server-side is that the application we're
developing needs to re-use so many little pieces of artwork(swfs) that the
number of http requests neccessary is killing the performance of the server.
So this is mainly for optimization.
thanks. I appreciate any leads/insight
