SwishMax is the normal evolution of Swish but more complex.
I do appreciate the numerous effects added as well as authoring. It's obvious Flash MX is more complete.
(see ActionScript for Flash MX - The Definitive Guide - Colin Moock - O'Reilly)
But, with Swishmax, there is a weak respect of rules and variable type declaration as in C, C++, ...
SwishMax is now case-sensitive as high level languages are. So, check out your old scripts and fix them up if needed.
May I suggest working with the original release, not that of your native language, because of bad translation.
Otherwise, there is a FREE software to make flash without having flash : DrawSwf

Besides, if you wish a website animation, do think about the downloading time either the complexity is non-essential. I must admit that the Guided Mode is useful for the user who has got a pretty good idea of his 'scenario'.
Let's see the new features, then some examples.
I must say all examples run fine; therefore, whether you got trouble, please watch out again your work more carefully. Particularly, preloaders, which all work.
To Mention : You could not test Swishmax scripts which include ActionScript methods, only with Flash Player or Browser.
These animations, built using SwishMax1, fit with browsers and html at the time they were released.
Some url, called inside some animations might not be good right now.
If you wish to use scripts built with older releases of SwishMax, check out carefully the code if needed.
Due to Flash obsolescence, animations are being converted into videos.
Acting the weakness of interest and lack of feedback when an answer was given, I have decided to close down the forum.
