Berlin, Germany-based software developer, Eltima Software, on Wednesday released
Flash Optimizer for Mac 1.0, a new utility the company says will reduce Flash file sizes by up to 80 percent of their normal size. The application uses proprietary algorithms that can optimize various components of Flash files, like vectors, shapes, morphing, Z-buffer and fonts. With 50 Flash optimization options available, the company says the main advantage of Flash Optimizer is that it does not stop at optimizing parts of the file, but continues with compressing SWF core itself. Flash Optimizer for Mac 1.0 is available for US$99.
