Macromedia Aftershock 2.0 icon.png

Macromedia Aftershock, later stylized as AfterShock, was a utility to prepare Shockwave or Flash content for web-based playback.

Features[edit | edit source]

Aftershock generates HTML pages along with code to support the Shockwave or Flash content. The code can be made to route users to Macromedia's website to install any required plugins. Aftershock can also generate JavaScript with a GIF image to function as a placeholder for users do not have the appropriate plugin.[1][2]

History[edit | edit source]

Aftershock was first shipped with Macromedia Flash 3 and supported Macromedia Shockwave Player 7 or later.[3] Version 2.x added support for Java applets, backwards compatibility for Shockwave 6 or later, and was included with Macromedia Director 6.5 Multimedia Studio.[4]
