Flash to HTML5

Hi All

 

I've been tasked with creating some HTML5 ads and ideally want to convert them from Flash (SWF) instead of hand-coding or using a tool like Google Web Designer.  

 

I've seen a number of articles such as this:

 

http://marketingland.com/google-now-auto-converts-flash-display-ads-html5-mobile-119578

 

Has anyone tried it to see if it works as I don't have access to the account and only produce the creative.

 

My add displays correctly when exporting using Swiffy, but I don't have an account to see if the clicktag fires.  The ads themselves will appear on Google Display Network (GDN) but from what I can see there is little difference with AdWords, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Neel

Hi there;
Based on what I have heard from graphic designers Swiiffy does work, however, I would recommend to contact the account managers and to set a test.

Thanks so much for your quick reply. I'll try and get hold of someone within the media agency and let you all know how I get on.
