The Help files state that you can export animations from Flash to FLV. I'm in CS5 Pro and cannot find ANY way to do that...
Alternatively, you can use Flash to create animations for use in movies. You can create an animation in Flash. You can export the animation as an FLV or F4V file. Then, you can import the FLV or F4V file into Adobe Premiere Pro for editing. In Adobe Premiere Pro, for example, you could add titles or mix the animation with other video sources.
Are these documents wrong??
I can render to QuickTime and the encode, but I lose the linking on click to a url...
Thanks in advance for some guidance.
BTW, it really should be a lot easier in this "Pro" package to create items for YouTube for advertising purposes. Youtube accepts .FLV (Adobe - FLV1 video codec, MP3 audio) but not SWF
after you click file/export/export movie and select quicktime, do you see any options to save as an flv?
No. I see options in QT settings for Animations HD MPEG4 etc. but nothing about FLV, and if I didn't want to export the movie to QT, the options are like png sequence, animated gif, etc.
then you can't export an flv from flash. the help docs are incorrect.
i added a correction to the help docs. hopefully, the adobe technical writers will fix that will a future edit of those docs.
