File Extension FLA Description:

The FLA file extension is associated with the application called Flash, by Adobe Systems, Incorporated. The software is categorized as an authoring application, which allows the user to create projects using a pre-defined environment. One example is a CD burning application, like NERO, which is authoring software for creating projects in optical devices, like CDs and DVDs.

Flash affords users the ability to create animations and scenes that involve pictures, objects, other forms of animation, and so on. Saved files from this program have the .fla file extension, where users can edit projects anytime they wish. The published version of this extension can come in different formats, like HTML, EXE, MOV, and more, depending on how and where it is used.

Features of the program are as follows:

* A frame-based timeline that allows users to incorporate motion into their projects, and increase the accuracy of animation timing with imported active objects, like music.

* Easy access commands to create shapes, along with other options for modifying them.

* Flash incorporates an ActionScript language for structured projects and creations. These scripts allow users to control various areas of their projects, like motion, input-output objects, timeline manipulation, and so on.

* Video tools that allow users to create content-based videos, like FLV, MOV, SWF, and more, with built-in compatible support for various codecs used in different multimedia software. It also has pre-installed support for videos published on the Web.

* Sound support is integrated into the application.

Files with .fla extension contain all the content that users utilize into their projects, as with animation settings, objects (images, shapes, and libraries), action scripts, sounds, and other relevant information.

Also, published animation created from the FLA extension, like SWF, EXE, and FLV, cannot be reverted back to .fla format. Thus, it is advisable to keep a copy of your project in FLA format, so that it can be edited for future use.
