Every time I import a SWF file that has 3-D in it, into after effects the file doesn't work.
How do I make this happen?
You don't. Those files need to be rendered and exported from Flash as images. Read the online help which features AE's SWF handling actualyl supports, which is quite, quite, limited and rudimentary.
The answer is - you CAN do this - provided you export the Flash files as a PNG sequence of stills - and import that sequence into flash as a movie. = Import > multiple files > png sequence... etc...
Hi Mylenium, Thank you. I had actually tried exporting it as a png sequence before writing this, however, I screwed up and forgot After Effects Preview mode was set to 50% so I thought that the png sequence was horribly pixilated... My bad... You suggested that I go back and try it again and it worked excellently. Thanks.
