Tivity launches Xtivity Flash authoring tool
Xtivity is a new Macromedia Flash (SWF) authoring program that allows the user to work in a layout-style environment and avoid having to code or debug projects.

Xtivity generates SWF files just like Flash does, but according to the company behind the tool, it is much easier on the non-developer to use and is almost half the cost of Flash. Xtivity offers streaming video, audio, includes components, elements, content management, direct importing of Photoshop files with layers and so much more.

Xtivity provides the user with a visual workspace similar to a layout program. The user draws boxes, places content in the boxes, adds actions to the boxes and then defines what triggers the actions to start and stop. Using these four steps, a user can build an entire interactive Web site with no experience necessary.

The software is capable of doing a majority of what Macromedia Flash can do, but with little to no learning curve. As Flash is a development program requiring coding skills, Xtivity promises to expand the market for interactive media and rich internet applications to include non-developers and designers alike.

This tool keeps the logic and content separated from each other, so that changes can be done to either, without affecting the other. An entire slideshow and navigational list can be updated with new content, without affecting the interaction or logic that makes the project work.

Tivity Online Store sells the software at US$399 and it is currently available for the Windows 98/NT/2000/ME/XP platform.
