    Convert swf to mov or avi etc

    Stefan83 Level 1



      I've designed a vector animation in flash 8 using a 16:9 ratio to be projected on a video screen. What is the best way to convert this swf to a format that can be played on a normal dvd player so it can be projected on a screen and maintain the vector graphics and continuously loop without pauses? any help would be very much appreciated.

          Can anyone help with this issue please? Every conversion method I've used loses the quality of the animation. Thanks

            I am having he same problem with Flash CS4 and can't figure it out.  I keep getting ghosted images when exporting to Quicktime via Animation or DV/DVCPRO codecs.  The only thing that seemed to work was exporting via PAL.  Why that worked I have no idea since I'm using region 1 NTSC displays and equipment, but it did.


            One other thing you might want to try is exporting it as a PNG sequence and then reassembling it in After Effects.  Then you can just instruct the dvd file to loop the single clip.  Completely tedious, yes, and problematic if you have a different framerate than 29.97, but might be a workable last resort if no one else out there has any answers.
