I did not invent anything.
Mike Davidson and his gang did. I even borrowed this logo from his blog.
I just found -on the web, where else?- a fairly easy method to create sIFR Flash Files without the need for Adobe Flash Studio itself. Thus, here it is: a free, dead-simple tool to help you convert as many font files as you need painlessly.
Simple? Very. Select a TrueType Font File, select which glyphs you wish to convert or [x] All if you want a big fat .swf file, click on 'Convert', pick a destination directory and you're set.
If you need more information on sIFR and why it's the greatest thing in web design since sliced images, take a look at Mike's blurb.
Then come back and download OpensIFRr, because you will want to play with this nice concept.
Let me show you an example of a short sIFR-enabled page:
No need to sUFFR to play with sIFR..!
Currently OpensIFRr only exists for OS X, but I could very easily offer a Windows and a Ubuntu versions as well. Let me know if you are interested.Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
