I just need the program that is used, Adobe Creative Cloud fucked up my computer so I had to delete that. Any other programs that work?

Most (all?) modders use Adobe Animate CC (or the former Flash Pro CS/CC) to make FLA files that are "published" as SWF files.

Basically, one cannot "convert" static PNG files into dynamic SWF ones, because PNG is raster graphics while SWF is vector. Also, PNG files are just a bunch of pixels, while SWF contains some code.
Automatic conversion of raster to vector is possible, but the result is too crappy to be used for SDT (example HERE).
If it exist, it is possible to convert the base SVG file used to make the PNG file into a SWF, but the result will still not be dynamic.
To make dynamic hair, one need to cut the strand(s) into several pieces, draw an half-disk on top of each and arrange them in a specific template of the FLA file.
If no SVG file is available, everything need to be redrawn from scratch.

On this forum, there is only the old (with some images missing) Dynamic Hair Positioning tutorial made by sclover13 and my little reminder How to arrange layers in your hair mod that helps with layers.
A tutorial has been made by konashion in his template (SDTModdingCS5.zip, that needs Flash Pro or Animate to be read).

Thank you for telling me, that paywall to get access to Animate or any Adobe product is a real cock blocker. Maybe when I get a better paying job I can help with modding but until then.
