Flash CS5 will export to HTML5 Canvas

Adobe is gearing up to release CS5 to the public, and during their presentation showed off a new tool that will export Flash animations into HTML5 Canvas.

Flash CS5 will allow for Flash developers to export their old and new animations directly into HTML5 Canvas code to paste onto their websites.  This will enable users with HTML5 supported browsers to experience Flash animations without the need for Flash installed.

With Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 in the works, supporting HTML5, all the top browsers now support the HTML5 Canvas code.  Developers will now be able to get their flash animations and websites to work on any browser, without the need for Flash to be installed.
