what product from macromedia do I need?

So I need to export flash video files from Final cut pro. I downloaded the trial version of Flash 8 video encoder. It works great, but now I need to buy it. I cannot for the life of me figure out where it is to buy. I am hoping that I do not need to buy the whole Studio 8 macromedia kit for 999.99 just to be able to export the video files. Does anyone have any insight?

thanks

You are right...there is a free Flash 8 encoder (that is notably not very good...hence it is free). It is quite hard to find on their site. You should look into Sorenson Squeeze or even the latest version of cleaner that both have a much better encoder for FCP to flash encoding.

Don't bother with cleaner - go with Squeeze, cleaner has too many bugs.

So if one exports a flash file doesn't one need to create the skin and transport controls? Or do the controls appear automatically?

As I understand it you can export the video for flash but one still needs a macromedia application to create the interface. So the question is- which application?

For what purpose is the export?

If it's web, you just need to encode a Flash swf file, drop it into an html page with a cut out the same size as your export and load them both onto your server. Plays automatically. Best for broadband, not dial-up.
