I'm planning to create a script to control a project template i'm working on, a script with a preview of the animation before being applied, so i thought about rendering the animation and exporting it as SWF then use flashplayer in the script, but what if i wanted to make the preview responsive to edits that can be made by the script (like change a color of something), would the animation be a json file called and manipulated by the script?

This is an avenue you can explore, though doing this within a scriptUI panel may prove difficult; it may be worth exploring an Extension, as they come with an HTML5 frontend that could draw the rendered animation simpler than in extendscript.

Hi! SWF is supported in scripts in some Adobe applications, but it's not the case of After Effects.

I would follow the Zack suggestion, use CEP to create it.
