    Converting a Flash file to video

    Sunrider69

      I've created short two and a half minute animation which needs to be converted to a video file.

       

      The animation contains various movie clips and run in conjunction with an overall audio backing track.

       

      It's my understanding that nested movie clips won't work when I export to video due to them having a timeline of their own however having a flash file with everything on the master time line would contain too many layers and frames to be manageable.

       

      Is there any way I can export my file to video (avi, mpeg etc) or do I need to get some third party software, in which case any advice on those?

       

      Thanks in advance.

          Hi,

           

          You can export your flash file to .mov. In Flash Professional CS4, You can do this by click on File menu > Export > Export Movie. Once your movie is exported to .mov, please open up Windows > Start  > All Programs > Adobe Media Encoder CS4 and add this .mov file. You can convert to mp4 video or On2, Sorenson flv codec videos.

           

          Thanks

            Thanks for the response, however I tried that route and unfortunately when I try and convert the file to a .mov it goes through most of the conversion process before declaring an unknown error has occurred.

             

            Most frustrating.

             

            Edit: Further investigation shows this to be a common problem. Trying a work around now . . . .

             

            Edit 2: Success!
