- Scaleform GFx allows licensees to create user interfaces using Adobe Flash authoring tools, such as Adobe Flash Professional; the resulting SWF files can be used directly by the GFx libraries, providing similar functionality to the Adobe Flash Player but optimized for use within game engines. Scaleform provides APIs for direct communication between Flash content and the game engine, and pre-built integrations for popular engines such as Unity and Unreal Engine. Scaleform GFx can also be licensed for use as a standalone Flash runtime system on mobile platforms, competing with Adobe AIR.
Separately-licensed modules for Scaleform GFx
