what do you mean?
if you want to see an .swf frame-by-frame you can import it into the stage or library of a new flash document. it's still not gonna show you everything because it's hella compressed from the original .fla document.
still i'm not sure what you mean by 'made of.'
i think it's lots of ones and zeros.

i hope that answers your question. if not, please clarify.

peace.

Yeah, Swish or Flash MX, or any other Flash output application for that matter. It's the standard; .swf.

The only way to protect your SWF is not to make it public.

what you want to do is to "obfuscate" your action script..

Oh boy... http://www.ozzu.com/search.php?search_k ... decompiler

As dM mentioned the ONLY way to protect an swf is not make it public.

You can use the programs that jumble your code up, but they never last long, Someone releases somthing to decompile it in almost no time at all.

Be proud of your work let them who want to look at it do so .Being able to see a working fla files does not mean they can always copy it and maby they just want to see how its made so they can learn from it ..dont be stingy...

on top of it all... if you're worried about your intellectual property being stolen, that means you're working professionally - if you want to take professionalism to the next level, it's not about one project being safe... because each project's gonna take it to the next level.

i'm certainly not all that, but i want to grow through each job i do, so i'm not gonna settle for repeating some past successes. and if someone comes along and hacks the script from some job i'm not satisfied with anymore... cool... the type of clients i want to work for won't be hiring them anyways and hopefully they'll learn something from it.

except for when it comes to some organization with a lot more resources than you capitalizing on your ideas, i really don't think intellectual property is all that big a deal... especially if we're talking about work that is so much more reliant on skills than resources (honestly, a computer with the proper software costs significantly less than rent, food and a clean bed) so let's all keep building off each other's skills and not trip over being paranoid about having our work stolen.

now hiring someone who hacks someone else's code... that's another story... 'cos that's gonna seriously mess you up, but... anyways... i shouldn't be ranting this late... peace...

g'night,
puck
