Adobe Scout

If you are looking for Adobe Scout, you have come to the right place. We explain what Adobe Scout is and point you to the official download.

What is Adobe Scout?

Adobe Scout—which has the letters “Sc” in its trademark Adobe square icon—is Adobe’s SWF file profiler, a program compatible with both Flash Player and Adobe AIR content. The general idea behind SWF profilers is that they collect internal data on the operation of Flash content when it runs so that the creators of that content can better figure out any kinks or issues that may be arising from or hindering its use. While it performs its profiling with basic telemetry, it is also capable of doing so with advanced telemetric technology, although that can only be accessed through specific steps taken by the user to enable the feature.

Scout can break down SWFs on a frame by frame basis, create visual maps of rendered objects, perform a replay of each involved command at runtime, and track user input. It requires the user to have either Adobe AIR 3.4 (and above) or Flash Player 11.4 (and above) in order to run, however. Furthermore, the latest (Creative Cloud or CC) version is compatible only with MS Windows 7 64 bit or Mac OS X 10.7 and up.
