So the Flash CS5 announcement is a little buried perhaps under the weight of other related news, so here are some screenshots of CS5. For the Adobe announced features of Flash CS5, see this page here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/whatsnew/. The following post has screenshots from Flash CS5 to show you the new features in a bit more detail. The post will follow the categories and topics from the page linked previously, if they can be shown in the UI.
Otherwise known as "TLF" text. You’ll see a rather sizable number of options in the Property inspector. First of all, here’s the PI when you select the Text tool (TLF Text is selected by default, you can revert back to Classic Text if you wish).
After you type or select some TLF text fields, the Property inspector context changes and you have the following multitude of options. The first photo shows the main PI, and the following two photos show the collapsed sections.
Code Snippets panel
Tired of googling your AS3? I am. Find the code you need right in a panel within Flash. The following screenshots show the basic Code Snippets panel, the panel options, and then each section so you can see the available snippets. Remember you can add your own to the panel.
FLVPlayback Video component
Component parameters available in the Property inspector, as well as Cue point properties. Add ActionScript cuepoints right in the Property inspector, and view Navigation cuepoints and their parameters that are already in your FLVs.
The following video does not have cuepoints, some are added using the "+" button in the PI, and then you can add parameters for the selected cuepoints.
This next video already had cuepoints embedded in it, and they’re visible in the PI. Their location, name, and parameters all show up.
Other new features that cannot be shown (to any extent) in pictures are:
JSFL for motion and a few "new motion" ECR-like features, Creative Suite and FlexBuilder integration, content distribution (like to AIR).
