Convert Flash to HTML5 for Free

QuarkXPress has powerful tools for creating Flash-based animations. If you would like to convert those animations to a universally supported industry standard, consider these free services:


Google Labs’ Swiffy is a free service for converting animations from SWF (Flash) format to HTML5, bringing them into compliance with Web standards and making them usable on iOS devices such as Apple’s iPad and iPhone. Swiffy shows you a preview of your existing SWF animation and the HTML5 version before you download it.

Swiffy also lets you preview the converted file on your mobile device — just by pointing your mobile device at the QR code displayed on the Web page! Try it at (Note: file sizes may grow, so be sure to check that.)


If your animations are in FLA format (native to Flash Professional), instead try Adobe’s Wallaby service at
