    It has mostly all the essential Flash features for animation and it doesn't cut corners for anything. Its an overall good program to use. I have seen many amazing Flash level animations made with this program and it can still be used for simple low quality animations. It can also be used for teaching students.

    Verge3D is a good alternative if you need to create a full-featured 3D interactive content on your website such as configurator or browser game.

    Verge3D is much easier to use when you need responsive 3D web content on your website. Good for prototyping as well.

    Verge3D integrates tightly with Blender/3ds Max and as such allows for creating interactive animations right in 3D modelling suite, not in the separate program like Adobe Animate. It also comes with an advanced visual programming tool.
