SWF file format
The Swiff owned by Adobe is used for the animated vector representation. It can contain the texts as well as other vector oriented graphics. Any web browser with Flash plug-in installed can play the file.
It was first just an acronym of “Shockwave Flash” because it was only developed for Shockwave player. These files are binary and are stored in the form of 8-bit bytes. The latest SWF10 version allows the expansion of text capabilities with support for bidirectional texts and complicated scripts. This allows embedding JPEG oriented images, which operates at an alpha channel for opacity and smooth filter.
