Flash will eat itself?

While Flash (the tool) can only target Flash (the platform), isn’t that limiting its efficacy? Don’t we need vector animations in other platforms and apps?

I’ve been thinking lately about the Flash tool (Flash Pro CS5 etc) and how it sits with the Flash platform (FlashPlayer, AIR etc). I’ve been worried that as the Flash tool only exports to the Flash platform, its use-cases are limited.

I thought that the excellent FlashMagazine would be the perfect outlet for this, and Jens very kindly agreed to publish my article on this subject. So run on over and check out Flash vs Flash and let me know what you think!
