Upcoming converter utility for SmartBuilder v3 lessons!
As you may already know, Adobe
will end support of the Flash Player on December 31, 2020. This means that
browsers will not be able to access the cloud based SmartBuilder v3 authoring
tool, or Flash elearning created by SmartBuilder v3 after this date. However,
any lessons that you have converted to HTML5 using the SmartBuilder v3 HTML5 converter (AKA Published Lesson
Converter, PLC) will continue to function properly.
If you want to maintain lessons created in SmartBuilder v3, we suggest using one of the options
PUBLISHED LESSON CONVERTER (PLC): Convert published lessons from Flash to HTML5 This tool will convert most action logic and objects to HTML5. View supported features and design
tips. Note, the tool will only convert the published output to HTML5. It will not convert the source files from SmartBuilder v3 to v4.
SOURCE FILE CONVERTER (SFC): Partially convert v3 source files to v4 source
files We are developing a conversion utility to import v3 content into v4. Due to the radical change in architecture from Flash to HTML, the utility will not convert all objects, and action conversion will be limited. The converter should maintain page structure/naming and convert v3 display sets/displays into v4 stacks/layers. Basic objects such as text, images, buttons, and radio buttons should also be converted. Some actions for imported objects may also be converted. In summary, the SFC will give you an accelerated starting point for a v4 project. The SFC will be released in Q1 2020. As a reminder, your SmartBuilder v3 subscription entitles you to a free v4 license.
The advantage of the PLC is that it will convert most functionality and objects, so the effort to get
working HTML output is less. However, you will not be able to make edits to these lessons after
December 31, 2020.
The advantage of the SFC is that it will allow ongoing maintenance going forward using SB 4 and take
advantage of SB 4's new features.
So, if you expect certain lessons are unlikely to need updating after December 31, 2020, consider
using the PLC for these. For lessons that may require ongoing edits after 2020, we recommend using
the SFC. Please contact
