The fla file is a simple animation with no actionscript. It was created by importing a SWF file from Crazytalk animation software
swf is already compiled, so CreateJS won`t be able to "translate" it, either you decompile it (if you are entitled to), or you output it to a html5 conform (mp4) video file
Thank you for the reply.
I though that Flash decompiled the SWF when I imported it into flash? At least I am able to save it as .fla.
If it is not decompiled how do I do that?
you need a decompiler like this one.
Or a swf2video converter.
It would be even better if you could target png sequence as output directly in Crazytalk.
And instead of using Flash, AfterEffects might be better prepared to compress the whole thing as an html5 compatible mp4 video.
I doubt that you gain any advantages by going the path flash>createJS, this would only be the case if Crazytalk would output their files with cartoonshaders.
Actually Crazytalk can output png sequence - it works like a charm with createJS now I need createJS because the output must be HTML5 editable format on the front end. I want to be able to exchange the picture assets of the animation on the fly directly on the browser instead of generating video on the backend and sending it to the browser.
Is createJS not the best option for doing so? (SVG)
Whoops - does not seem to work anyway. When I use png sequence to create the HTML format it just shows pregenerated frames in sequence. That will not work since I need to manipulate the items in the animation. I can only do that when the format is based on a skelleton with separate body parts that get translated. That will of course not work with pgn sequence. As soon as I go into static frames or video I loose the skelleton.
I will try with a decompiler like you suggest
Just tested the decompiler but with the same result - the .fla translated through createJS is blank. The compiler actually also has en export to HTML function but that generated the same blank as createJS. It is very strange since for instance Swiffy works fine being fed the same SWF as I have now tried feeding the decompiler. Swiffys output is however more messy to work with than CreateJS - and I would therefor emuch prefer to get that to work
