Adobe Flash

The essential elements that make Flash unique are no longer valid as other software does what Flash does and better. For example, simple animations can easily be done in Photoshop rather than Flash.

SharePoint Designer

SharePoint Designer is good if you want to do a custom page design—editing the master page in SharePoint. I have never done this. I like to use SharePoint Designer for moving pages around within a site. It is not as easy if you want to move pages between sites. If I am looking to edit HTML or apps, I am able to track down code through the SharePoint Designer interface. It is useful for locating all the files that make up pages. It is not my go-to for design because I would rather use an interface where it is WYSIWYG and not bounce from one screen to a browser to view the results of changes made.

SharePoint Designer

  • Navigation between sub-sites and beyond the entry point is not seamless. I find it difficult to get to the root of a directory structure if I have not started there.
  • Would love to be able to do WYSIWYG in some form. I have only used it for a year but I have not found anything fancy to do.
  • I would like to be able to work in a development site and easily move to the production site.

Flash is usable but definitely has a learning curve that a novice user may need to Google a few tutorials prior. The seamless integration with other Adobe software products is nice for loading content from the cloud. Plus it's great for storing and saving work on the go.

Alternatives Considered

Other software we have evaluated include Toon Boom Harmony (which we also use in our classroom) and OpenToonz. Toon Boom and Adobe Animate are the industry standard software used professionally.

SharePoint Designer

I prefer InfoPath for designing forms for use in SharePoint over SharePoint Designer. I have not used SharePoint Designer for designing pages in SharePoint. I have found it easier to work directly in SharePoint. Granted I have only had the product for a little over a year.

Return on Investment

Adobe Flash

  • It saves hours each week by making it easy to view and review a large number of projects.
  • It's easily accessible on PC and Mac. We use both at our company.
  • It seamlessly integrates with the large variety of projects that we do in Photoshop and Illustrator.

SharePoint Designer

  • Cannot customize .net; Developers must use Visual Studio instead of SharePoint Designer.
  • There is a maximum depth of a workflow sub-step in xamml where that is a hard limit of 125 for node depth in xaml. The maximum value of 121 levels accounts for the default activities (stage, sequence, etc.) that SharePoint Designer inserts automatically.
