Just a thought!
In a smart move Adobe scrap the only option to Flah, LiveMotion leaving all is faithful users in oblivion. But they keep things like Atmosphere that nobody use.
Now with Golive CS, no more support to Dynamic content a major feature available in previous version.

Adobe web products going down????

Watch out Adobe users
We better switch to Macromedia Fast.......

LiveMotion was axed for financial reasons... it wasn't making any money off of it.

However, GoLive and several other Internet-friendly apps are going strong. They have no plans to discontinue them.

LiveMotion really blows. Or should I say Livemotion blew?

It was always 2 steps behind flash, especially in the actionscript area. It didn't even offer serious drawing improvements over Flash. They were never going to pull any marketshare away from Macromedia, it was a wise decision to scrap it.

i wouldnt say it blew...

i always thought it had more of an intuitive time line and a more familiar drawing tool over flash. I think what hurt them most was the absence of actionscript.

But for anyone that's serious, flash is the way to go of course.

I found F!ash heavy to learn. Not that I used LM @ all. I think that swf files are fresh as there doesn't seem to be anything you cannot do. But I found it mind boggling @ times.... Might have to dip back in.

H!

I found Flash to be completely confusing. (admittedly, this was back in version 4) But I took to LiveMotion quite easily.

I was disappointed that LiveMotion was canned, but it was a smart financial move, since it just wasn't as advanced as Flash and certainly wasn't generating money for the company.

However, as a basic Flash alternative, if you wanted to do simpler stuff, it was a good program.
