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?
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.
I'm going to cry ... for two days i was looking for some free software to make exact this thing - i dind't find any working properly so i bought Sothing SWF to video convertor ... and you are telling me, that there is implemented function inside Adobe Flash itself? :-D I'm an idiot, well :-) but thanx for this info.
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.
I am not sure if I suppose to post in here. Just found this thread and having the same problem trying to follow given instructions.. Can I please ask for clarification what application has been used to open FLA file and exporting it to AVI? Thank you
Nowadays the software is called Adobe Animate CC. Once installed, you go to File > Export Video.... This will give you an uncompressed .mov.
Then, with the Adobe Media Encoder or any other software of your choice, you can convert to .avi.
