Extract Audio from SWF
on Nov 27, 2010 at 2:38:17 pm

Hi All,

I found a swf from probably 5 years ago that I made with some buddies of mine back in uni and it's just a timeline animation that has an audio track running with it.

I wanted to put it on YouTube, so I tried bringing it into After Effects, but there was no audio and the movie clips inside the SWF weren't working. (ie: the timeline moves along, but character's leg animations which were movie clips don't work)

What's the best way to take this SWF and convert it to a video with audio?

Thanks,
Clint

Try and bring the old SWF into the Flash Authoring tool, and place it on the Stage.
Use File / Export (not 'Publish'), and select / Export Movie. Here you can choose a variety of formats, for instance AVI and MOV (Quicktime). Even WAV - if it's only the audio you want.
This will effectively create a screen capture of every frame playing; including MovieClips and of course Audio too.
The performance of this function used to be a little ho-hum in Flash before, but it's said it's been improved now. I haven't tried it myself.
Onother option is of course to use simply a dedicated screen capture program.

Hi Brodd,

Thanks for the reply. It's not working for my swf, but I can see it working for other people.

The movie clips didn't get imported so there's no animation and the sound isn't there either, but I think what I'll try next is to do a screen and audio capture.

This might be the best way because since it's all vector, I can size it up and get a better resolution for YouTube video.


Kind Regards,
Clint
