adding text to flash movies ( swf files)
on Feb 27, 2008 at 10:41:59 am

I make medical movies I have been using Flix Pro to make the swf files from large AVI files

Because I am trying to produce small files for streaming, I loose lots of quality, this especially affects any titles / text in the movies, which end up looking jagged, plain awful

Is there a method for adding the text / titles in flash perhaps as an alpha channel, in order to hopefully preserve quality.

PS I dont own or use flah, I just have Flix Pro

hmmm well yes, Flash can do vector based text.... I think thats what your asking....

If you had the SWF you could bring it into flash and title over it. I am not sure what you mean by "as a alpha channel" but you could use text as a matte.

I have never used Flix so I am not sure what tools it provides but I would think you will need to own flash to do this. Luckily you can download the 30 day trial and get an idea of what your looking at.
