My SWF file plays properly, but if I open the file in After Effects the movie symbols don't play. Changing the movie symbols into graphic symbols works but then of course I lose my filters.
I would export straight to MOV from Flash but that brings up so many other glitches...
Basically I am looking for a good way to get video from flash.
I have this same problem. I would also like to be able to see the frames as they will play from my movie clips while I'm editing if possible. If I export as animated gif, avi, wmv or anything other than swf my movie symbols just sit there unmoving from the first frame. (I have flash 8)
You can try soThink's SWF to video convertor, or Camtasia screen capture while the movie plays.
Thanks for the suggestion but shouldn't it possible to do this within Flash? Does this work for anyone?
UPDATE: My movie symbols won't export if they contain bitmapped images, but flash-created symbols export fine. I don't understand this.
