how do I export Flash with 3-D so that it plays in aftereffects or premiere?

Dec 13, 2012 1:58 PM

When I export a flash .swf file with 3-D into after effects it doesn't work. While it plays fine as a standalone .swf file it will not import into After Effects. How do I make this happen?

    Much like images, a SWF itself is treated like a "video". If you rotate the SWF all the contents rotate in a flat manner.


    There's a great deal of collaboration between apps but you have to be reasonable. There's entire frameworks designed for one runtime while the other uses a completely seperate internal version. They don't play nice.

    Please refer to this Help document for detailed information about the workflow between Flash Professional and After Effects.

    Ah, your original question made me think you expected objects in flash transformed in 3d to actually transform in 3d the way they do in AE.


    You can also export to a movie format if that PNG sequence is too long (keeping audio intact), if that helps.
