In This Chapter
To share your creations with the world, you need to publish your final movie with the Publish command. Before publishing, you can use the Publish Settings option to specify important settings for your final movie, including quality and version settings as well as your choice of file formats. Flash can publish to the web (as SWF or HTML), desktop applications, and now to native mobile platforms such as iOS and Android with the help of Adobe AIR.
.xfl files you use to build your movie are intended only for the Flash authoring environment. When you're ready to deliver a final product, you need to use the Publish command (FilePublish) to create a final compressed file that can display in a web browser or device.
