When Macromedia launches version 5 of its Flash software next month, it will come bundled with art from Auckland firm Inkspot Digital.
Inkspot began animating its Cliptoonz line of cartoon-style clip-art with Flash 18 months ago, and negotiated the deal to include the work with Flash 5 earlier this year in San Francisco. Inkspot is one of seven companies to have work included with the release.
The deal follows a similar arrangement with Apple Computer, which bundled static images with the most recent release of its AppleWorks productivity software.
Macromedia will be demonstrating Flash 5 along with animators for Inkspot at a conference in Auckland next week.
