I'm working on a website that lists free alternatives to expensive software, both web applications, and desktop applications. So if you're a Windows user, Linux user, or even a Mac user. You'll find a free alternative to a paid application (request button will be added last, so users can request applications to be put on)

Anyway I'm trying to find a free alternative to Adobe Flash Professional (http://www.adobe.com/products/flash.html).

Now when I say alternative I mean alternative not these cartoon flash animation applications like Synfig Studio, Pencil, or even CreaToon. I'm talking about a good alternative like Liveswif Lite on Windows.

I know about OpenLaszlo, and that's more of a Flex alternative. I've heard of FlashDevelop (http://www.flashdevelop.org/), but when I went to the website I noticed it was only Windows compatible, and I'm looking for just a Mac application. However it would be nice to find a flash alternative that is cross platform.

Anyway if anyone can help me out with this so the site can be finished faster that'd be great.

FlashDevelop only works with Windows, Silverlight not even close to a flash alternative, and is powered by the .NET Framework. Last, but not least Pencil isn't even close to being a flash alternative. Did you read the description???

Props for trying, but is there any close free alternative to Adobe Flash Pro for OS 10???
