It's an interesting project. Please, provide minimum documentation or/and Quick Start guides. I need explanation how to buld the swf file from zero, for example, add text, image, some effects...
Thank you!

Hi Stanislaw,

I do plan to add docs, but probably it will be geared more towards the tools around it rather than the swf stuff. You can download the swf spec from Adobe, the tags follow that very closely. It is more to build tools with though, making a swf completely by hand would be pretty tedious : ). Also you can modify swf files, that may be an easier path in (set breakpoints in swfDump for example and then examine the SwfCompilationUnit).

One other place to look for example code would be the swf to xaml converter in there. It is an example of how you can generate content without doing things tag by tag.
