I'm relatively new to Flash (and an absolute novice at AE). I've been working on a series of simple videos in Flash that have alternating text and images. The idea was to import these .swf into Premiere Pro. However, Premier Pro doesn't take .swf files and I have to go through AE. When I import my .swf into AE all the text disappears and I only have the images. Any idea how to work around this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I hope you will get a better answer soon but whenever one of Flash wonks in my shop wants to send me something I insist they make a movie out of it.
See this note from After Effects Help about what is imported from a SWF file:
"SWF files are imported with an alpha channel. Audio is not retained. Interactive content and scripted animation are not retained. Animation defined by keyframes in the main, top-level movie is retained."
Thank you for your response. I'm still working with this!
