Converting STS to SWF

An STS file contains a two-dimensional vector representation of the bottom solder mask which makes up a printed circuit board (PCB), and it is most likely created and processed with Eagle software. STS is part of a larger family of extensions called Gerber, which represent the de facto standard used in the PCB industry. Gerber files describe various aspects of electronic boards, including copper layers, solder masks, electrical connections, drilling or milling data. Similar formats include SOL, STC and PLC.

SWF (Small Web Format) is a multimedia and vector graphics format initially created by FutureWave Software, then later on transferred to Macromedia and currently owned by Adobe. SWF files contain animations and sound, developed so as to be easily uploaded and shared on the web. They can also include certain interactive programs, such as browser games, and can be opened using a Flash plugin.
