Converting my flash intro

Feb 11, 2013 6:58 AM

I just downloaded my first trial version of flash. I do not really know a whole lot about the way everything works but I've been trying to learn as I go. I have created a small intro that I would like to play at the start of my youtube videos, I'm not real sure how to do this, can someone offer some help or advice as to how I need to save or convert and then use the intro to tie them both together? Thanks!!

    using cs3, you could add the following to the last frame of your intro:

     

    navigateToURL(new URLReqeust("www.youtube.com/youryoutubeid"));

    Youtube doesn`t accept swf files to upload, you have to convert your animation to a videofile.

    There are different options here:

     

    1.If your animation file contains no actioscript and no nested movieclips you can directly export from flash to video

     

    File>Export>Export Movie>Quicktime

     

    2.If you want to use a video programm like Premiere/After Effects to composite your intro manually with your video files

     

    File>Export>Export Movie>PNG Sequence (Best Quality, Alpha Channel can be kept)

     

    3.If your source files contains Actionscript or interactivity, you need to look into 3dParty products like this

    Just append any new questions to this thread, the chance of quick response is much better and a solution -if found- is helpful for the whole community.
