I am new to the forum and about 15 minutes new to Amethyst
I have been tasked with finding out the level of effort that it will take to convert a legacy Flash project(Flash Pro CS5) over to a Microsoft Surface table we have in our office. I started looking into this task yesterday and what I understand so far is that in order to get an app up and running on the Surface, you need to go through Visual Studio to compile the project, and that there is no other way(please feel free to correct me if I am wrong).
I am a seasoned Flash veteran, but have not used Visual Studio since 2009. The workflow for Amethyst/Flash that I understand so far, is that you can take a compiled swf, wire it up to Amethyst, and compile to the Amethyst Flash Player. The info I'm now looking for is:
1. Is there a way to port the Amethyst Flash Project over to Visual Studio and compile for the Surface?
2. Can I compile for the Surface directly from Amethyst?(because if so, that would be glorious)
Thanks for any info as I pick up speed on new "learnings"
Cheers to the Amethyst community,
