Used to deliver animated content within web pages, .SWF files are created using "Adobe Flash" and played using "Flash Player", a free plug-in for web-browsers.

These animation files can contain a variety of different file types to create the final animation, such as images, text and sound and "ActionScript" files, which are used to direct the animation.

Flash was originally developed by MacroMedia, but was later bought by Adobe in 2005.
