Hello everybody, it seems that i can't export as Quicktime, it just stops at "Recording Flash Content" - any ideas?
Could anybody help me?
What do you mean by "it just stops"?
Does it error? Does the rendering window close without finishing?
I have noticed (in CS3) that the progress indicator tends to not do anything while in the Recording Flash Content phase of export, and it can take a while to get through this phase, depending on the length of the animation, and the size of the file.
That sounds odd. That short of a clip shouldn't take so long to export regardless. I wonder if there is an issue with the effects you mentioned.
There is a free online service for conversion of media files that I have found handy in the past. They make money off advertising on the site, and don't place a watermark on your files. I believe they can convert swf to mov if you can't get Flash to work out for you.
I figured a way to get it past "Recording Flash content"
I just set the time instead of making it stop at last frame, it exports it to a .mov format now...
But the problem is that, the movie now only shows the "Play Intro" button which i can't click -.-'
I'm now having problems with this, has it been resolved? I have CS4/Mac/OSX.
When I export my flash animation, the Recording Flash Content box shows and it's taken at least an hour now to progress about half way. My animation is 1.5 minutes, has nested movie clips, and an short armature sequence.
Is After Affects really the only efficient way to work with animation and video? This animation was supposed to be the background video for a DVD.
are you just exporting a normal animation? the problem with the previous/last question is that the fla had 'buttons' in (eg 'press me to play film' etc), which wouldn't convert to quicktime.
Is yours just a normal animation? if so, I'll do the same and try and convert it on mine if you want to send it over
The export finally finished and a valid .mov file was created (it ran in QT & the dvd preview). However, there are alot of artifacts, so I can't actually use it for my DVD backgound video.
The swf has several nested movie clips, an armature sequence, and some actionscript. It's pretty complicated.
I've seen the problem with artifacts documented on the web, so should I just bag this effort and not try to conver the swf to mov? I'm kind of a newbie so I don't know if I have any options left.
Any help is *greatly* appreciated.
I've had this problem before too, and just started having it again today.
If you have chosen to export your movie till the last frame and you have a stop(); actionscript anywhere on the main timeline before the last frame the timeline will never get to the end. So move the stop to the last frame. This fixed my problem.
