To create Flash Lite content, you will need one of the latest versions of the Flash authoring environment, Flash CS3 Professional or Flash Professional 8. Adobe Device Central CS3, a new component in all of the Adobe Creative Suite® editions and several point products including Flash CS3 Professional, enables you to more easily design, preview, and test mobile content.

Author, test, and publish mobile content for the latest release of Adobe Flash Lite, now supporting FLV and rendering of SWF files for Flash Player 8 when integrated within a mobile phone or embedded web browser. Authoring support for Flash Lite 3 requires both an update to Adobe Flash Player Update for Flash CS3 Professional software and an update to Adobe Device Central CS3.
