Here is my proposal for swfmill's "simple" mode.
It's all about <place ...> tag, about it's four attributes:
Proposal definition: allow to use "0-100%" as values of these
<place id="someId" name="myFoobar" x="5%" y="5%" width="95%" height="95%"/>
While parsing swfmill will replace values like "...%" with according
numbers, for x and y It's
x = 0.05*width_of_parent_movie_clip
y = 0.05*height_of_parent_movie_clip
for width and height it would change the _xscale and _yscale to
_xscale = 0.95*width_of_parent_movie_clip/width
_yscale = 0.95*height_of_parent_movie_clip/height
I have plenty ideas like that, for example deltaX, deltaY or
deltaHeight, deltaWidth additional attributes, which rescue you if you
have 1000 templates in .swfmill format and .swf's dimensions for example
are changed, so you have to go through each of them and change according
I also know that it could be done by any other application with
xml-parsing abilities before giving it to swfmill... but anyway.
Maybe some kind of swfmill utils application would do that.
If anyone is interested then let's discuss it.
