Macromedia has announced Studio 8, its bundle of web design programs. Included in the suite of graphics tools are Dreamweaver 8, Flash 8, Fireworks 8, Contribute 3 and FlashPaper 2.

More interesting than what is included is the notable absence of Macromedia's once flagship vector drawing product, Freehand. Ever since the recent announcement of the Macromedia/Adobe merger, it had been expected that Freehand would be the main casualty and it is expected that Freehand will either be axed, sold off, or merged with Adobe Illustrator.

The Studio 8 bundle covers most angles of web site design, from design and graphics using Fireworks, to web page coding with Dreamweaver, to animation and interactivity with Flash, to allowing clients to manage their own web sites with Contribute. Macromedia's document conversion tool FlashPaper 2 is also included.

@SPINNLESDAMORON2 Be careful not to severely underestimate the crazy complexity behind those tasks. None of those are bound to happen. Ever.

But if one day Rosetta for Mac OS X past 10.6 Snow Leopard does happen, word of it will travel, and it should eventually reach you, as it would be a major Mac OS X breakthrough. It will involve recompiling the kernel for 10.7 Lion and later, and that too after due modification is made beforehand. This is not trivial.

Until then, all we can do to assist you is to seriously repeat to you the existing options below.

or patch flash 8 to work on 10.7 and above?

If anyone could customize rosetta, would they be able to upload it?

Yeah. Customizing rosetta to make it run on 10.7 or above seems pretty good

@SPINNLESDAMORON2
I believe all viable options have already been laid out: Run it on 10.6.x Snow Leopard, or install and run QEMU with Mac OS X PPC under any version of Mac OS X of your choosing, or run the Windows version with Wine etc..

As for taking this PPC binary, and making it Intel, I believe no one will ever do that. Insane amount of work, that too for effectively no reward, considering the already-existing options above. It would make a lot more sense to see people trying to port PPC Rosetta over to Lion and later: it would be incomparably more useful, less insanely-difficult and more rewarding.

Anyone is free to try, though.

I still wonder if it's possible for somebody to make an intel version of this. It might actually surprise me.

If you want to go that route, then yes, that should work as well.

will QEMU work too?

If your OS version is above 10.6, you might have to get the Windows version and maybe wrap it with Wineskin.

It may sound stupid, but is it possible for someone to make a custom intel version of this app? I would be surprised if there is a way.

I have to say, for people wanting to learn to animate, there is NOTHING BETTER than starting here. Even 3D uses many of the same principles.
