to convert a Flash file to an AVI or GIF file with SWF2AVI
First download SWF2AVI
and create a Flash animation in Anim-FX.
Anim-FX users want to import a Flash animation created with Anim-FX
into their video editing software, or they don't like to use the
Flash loadmovie action to import the Anim-FX animation into Flash
or Swish. A small Freeware utility called SWF2AVI converts SWF
files into AVI, or convert SWF files into a sequence Gif or BMP
files. Both methods will be useful to you when you struggle to
get the SWF files into a vector based software or in your video
When you save the animation set the Set the FPS to 30
1. Install and open
Since Anim-FX Files are scriptbased you must first
create a container for the movie, by going to "Extras/Auto
Wrap Movie"3. Select the SWF file you created with Anim-FX
4. Set the number of frames to 300 - (Note this may differ per animation)
5. Now goto File/Open and select the file "swf2avi-conainer.swf".
6. Click on "OK"
to start the process.
7. When done, a message appears informing you that all the 60 frames
have been created
Now you have created a sequence of 300 BMP or GIF files. You can
import these files into Flash or into your video editing software
to manipulate them further. You can also covert these files to an
AVI with SWF2AVI.
To create an AVI please do the following:
8. Go to "Extras/Convert picture sequence to AVI".
9. Click on "add image"s - (note that you must
create a sequence of BMP files to convert them into an AVI)
10. Select the first and last image of the created sequence
11. Click on "Write AVI"
12. Select the desired compression method.
13. "Save" the AVI File
To import the created BMP files into Flash you must do the following
14. Open Flash
15. Select file import
16. Select the first graphic (frame) of the sequence of pictures
and click on "Open"
When you take a look at the timeline you will see a sequence of
pictures. From here you can combine and merge the animations with
your own flash projects and save them as SWF. Note that when you
use a small siede animation you may eed to use a mask as somehow
"SWF2AVI" doesn't work well when you save the file
with smaller dimensions then the default 300 x 600 dimensions.
