One of the major advantages of Flash is in its compatibility with Illustrator/Photoshop. I can literally create a vector sketch in Illustrator, copy paste it over to Flash and keyframe myself an animation. Shape tweening and Illustrator == epic win.

Anything like that in Hype? I'd imagine one of the ways would be to use something like .svg and perhaps an open-source tool, but I'm still not sure it would reach the level of Flash&Illustrator.

I mean, as a web-developer/animator, I'm all up for a cheaper product that doesn't require viewers to install Flash, and integrates into JavaScript perfectly. I am very interested in where this goes and might be one of the first users.
