There’s been a lot of talk about Flex versus Flash and the ability to integrate Flash content into your Flex applications. To be honest its always been a bit of a pain to get that all working seamlessly until I saw the Flex Component Kit for Flash CS3 demo’d just now.
Its basically an extension that lets you package up a Flash movie clip as an SWC for use in Flex, complete with code-hinting, states, transitions, custom events etc. You won’t believe it until you see it — the improvement in workflow is just tremendous, its now easy to get that creative look from Flash over to Flex and you’ll save hours implementing it.
