Best to start your own thread. You will want to include some of your sytem and project specs as well as rationalizing why you need the SWF.
[branched to a new thread]
There's seldom any reason or benefit to exporting a SWF file directly from After Effects. Relatively few things are preserved as vectors (which is the main reason to export a SWF file). See this page for details.
There are several options for creating movies from After Effects that will play in Flash Player. See this section for more information.
If it renders fine a FLV why do take that into Flash and export from Flash it would give you the opportunity to add your interactivity if there is to be any.
Although I agree if it works fine as an FLV are you not better off that way?
Thanks Todd for creating a new thread, didnt really want to spam the forums with so many SWF threads about.
Well im basically making a banner for a website with some minor animations that would automatically play only once when the user enters the website.
Some of the projects specs are that i created a custom composition (900pxx270px) and imported a slightly photoshopped JPEG image. I then added a ripple effect to the single layer being the JPEG image, i then hit export to SWF and kept the image quality to maximum and I didnt rasterize
Any suggestions on what im doing wrong and y I cant get the SWF to play back at all?
Don't export raster images to SWF. There's no point. Stick with F4V and FLV. If you're starting with a JPEG, which is a bitmap/raster image, then you have no chance of getting your animation out in the SWF vector format.
