Flax Editor's review

Crafting Flash-based text effects can be difficult and time-consuming. This single-minded gadget simplifies the process and cuts production time significantly. The highly intuitive interface uses minimal space on the desktop, making it perfect for running alongside other design tools. To create a sample effect, we simply typed in our text, added one of more than 50 built-in effects, and watched the results in a real-time preview window. The highly adjustable text and effects let us fine-tune the appearance of our text with little effort. When exporting a project as an SWF, the program creates a frame-by-frame animation and formats each letter as a symbol, making it easy to further edit your text in Flash or other design applications. You also can add background pictures and save your work as an EXE projector or even set it as your screensaver. As a standalone design tool, FlaX is somewhat limited. You can work with only one piece of text at a time, and the program offers few options for stylizing that text. All in all, however, this program makes an excellent addition to the utility belt of any Flash designer.
