I know this has been answered but I cannot locate it, I am trying to export a video I made in after effects to flash so I can put it on my website. Is there a tutorial anyone know of on how to do this or an easy way? I have tried the basic I believeto swf file but loose all my background graphics which I need any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
In most cases, you want to export a Flash video (FLV) file, not a SWF file. Exporting a SWF file is only a good idea when you only use vector graphics in AE, and you limit yourself to using features that are supported as vectors for SWF export. The list of features supported as vectors for SWF is here.
Here is the After Effects Help page on how to Render and export a composition as an FLV or F4V file.
