What’s new in EDAP Tools v.2.0

Version 2 of Elec­tric Dog Flash Ani­ma­tion Pow­er Tools marks a huge step up from our pre­vi­ous release, keep­ing all the func­tion­al­i­ty of v. and adding excit­ing new fea­tures. After near­ly two years in devel­op­ment ver­sion 2 is a major release which opens the doors to ambi­tious future additions.

  • Smart Magnet Rigs

    With this ver­sion we intro­duce Smart Mag­net Rigs – a pow­er­ful Clas­sic Tween work­flow enhance­ment which builds up on the Smart Snap func­tion­al­i­ty in v.
    Smart Mag­net Rigs are cre­at­ed with the help of our new Smart Mag­net Rig pan­el and enable Smart Mag­net Joints – ele­ments know their hier­ar­chy and can always snap back to their par­ent when needed.
    This also allows for Smart Trans­form – a hier­ar­chy chain-select com­mand which places the Trans­for­ma­tion Point of a chain selec­tion in the Reg­is­tra­tion Point of the high­est-rank­ing par­ent symbol.

  • Convert To Keyframe Advanced

    A new and pow­er­ful F6 replace­ment command.

  • Completely redesigned Settings panel

    Now via EDAPT Set­tings users can dis­able and enable the com­mands which they don’t use to avoid Com­mands menu clutter.
    Visu­al Col­or Pick­ers for Dark and Light lay­er col­ors and many new set­tings for the new commands.

  • Single key shortcuts

    Sin­gle key short­cuts have been enabled in the EDAPT Key­board Short­cuts Set for faster and eas­i­er access to many Flash fea­tures and functions.

  • Improved Library Renaming Tools

    Library renam­ing dialogs have been improved so that input fields now remem­ber the last typed in value. 

  • Faster performance

    Due to code opti­miza­tion and the intro­duc­tion of a cus­tom made EDAPT library per­for­mance has been improved significantly.

  • Unified installer package

    One installer pack­age work­ing with all ver­sions of Flash – from Macro­me­dia Flash 8 to Adobe Flash Pro CS6.

Edit: 26 Oct 2013. Due to crit­i­cal bugs and dras­tic changes in Adobe Flash Pro­fes­sion­al CC the installer pack­ages (EDAP Tools v. were sep­a­rat­ed to tar­get F8, all CS and CC with more precision
