Convert SWF file to HD video

Mar 8, 2012 11:56 AM

Hi to all,

 

I have a big problem. I did a 10 second animation in Flash CS5 and exported to a swf file, but my client is asking me a to convert it to a video file with this requirements:

 

  • Size: HDTV 720P. (1280 X 720) pixels. 30FPS. (Frames per second)
  • Format: stream format: HDV-HD1. Stream Type: MPEG-2. Transport

            Stream(TS). Aspect Ratio: 16:9. Britate Type: CBR (Constant Bitrate).

            Number of passes: 1. Video Bitrate: 18300

 

I tried some conversion programs to do the job:

 

  • iWisoft Flash SWF to Video Converter
  • E.M. Magic Swf2Avi
  • Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate 6
  • Total Video Converter HD

 

All of them recognizes the swf file fine, ( I set up the fla file with 1280 X 720 pixels and 30 fps) but when I try to export to a video format with the previous specifications using any of the programs, I get a very slow video, not smooth at all, and sometimes a large video with 2+ minutes (supposed to be only 10 sec). The swf file plays fine.

 

Any suggestions? thanks in advance.

    Have you tried importing into an actual video editing program?... like Premiere??

    That software is specifically designed to output video.

    What about "Exporting" the animation as uncompressed .avi or some other video format and then import that into the video editing program to match final specs needed?

    Best wishes,

    Just open the original project FLA, file->export movie->AVI (uncompressed) and set the dimensions as you mentioned. After you get the movie exported from flash, convert that AVI (already the proper size) to the format you need.

     

    If you have the Adobe Suite then you have Adobe Media Encoder. It supports MPEG2 (HDV-HD1 is just a specific set of settings for MPEG2). It's pretty darn easy to set up. No reason to pay for more software if you already have it.

    Not everything works when exporting to movie, like code. You could have a stop() or something like that on a timeline and it will not work as you expect. The file->export movie is only for timeline movies for the most part. Glad it worked for you though.
