I have windows 7 64bit installed with adobe CS6 full suite. i am trying to learn more about flash and adobe products in general. however i have a project i need to complete with power point slides were i want to take this packetsniffer.swf file and it to my MS power point slide. i need to open the .swf file and edit a couple slides out of it. I only need the one animation in it. how do i do this with adobe flash or some other application. then i will need help putting it in the power point slide show as a slide animation. thanks
Do you have the FLA that created the SWF? The only way to do it with official Adobe tools is to edit the source FLA and publish a new SWF.
Otherwise you're looking for a SWF decompiler, and they vary a lot as to how well they work.
thanks for the response not sure what the FLA is? I only have a .swf file called packet sniffer.swf. what .swf decompiler would i need to use?
An FLA is the source file you use to make a SWF. The original creator of the SWF file would have it.
There are many SWF decompilers out there, some paid, some free. You'll just have to Google it and experiment.
