Avanquest USA Offers Flash for the Little Guy

Avanquest USA, a developer and publisher of small office/home office software, has brought a low-cost, neophyte-friendly animation package to the U.S. marketplace with In-A-Flash. Developed by NETGUI, the Flash-based software is designed to allow small business owners to create professional-looking animated content without previous experience or outsourcing.

According to Avanquest, In-A-Flash allows virtually anyone to produce animated web content, banner ads, multimedia presentations and training materials. The package includes an animation library that features customizable special effects such as rotations, sweeps, explosions, fades and more. The suite also allows for the addition of Wave and MP3 files for looping background music or narration and lets users tailor the length of an animated movie to match the sound track.

In June, In-A-Flash was successfully launched by Avanquest Germany in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It is now available in the U.S. at Circuit City, CompUSA, Fry’s Electronics and Micro Center for the retail price of $49.95.
