Hey folks. I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a .mov to flash converter. I'm running a mac with Final Cut Studio 3. Thanks.

If you have Premiere Pro (if you bought the Production Premium bundle for After Efects/Photoshop) you can create a FLV from a timeline. You can also use any encoder product like Sorenson Squeeze or Telestream Episode to convert it (not free).

Or you can tell the person requesting a .flv that Flash is dead and they need to move onto something more cross platform compatible...like HTML5! ;-) Kidding....well...sorta kidding...

mp4s using the h.264 codec are what most of my clients ask for these days as that format will work for both Flash and iDevices.

I am on a quest for this. At this point there doesn't seem to be a good one...the best one, ON2 is out of business and the company that took over won't respond to my requests for tech help. I read here that you can just change the extension and that flash always reads h.264, but I am concerned that the h.264 files take too much bandwidth to look good. I have been struggling with this and no one is answering my questions, even on the Apple Discussion group. I will be eager to hear what you find out.

Checkout Sorenson Squeeze or Squeeze for Flash (if they still offer that). Both have the On2 VP6 codec.

Thanks so much. Well, I want something that integrates with Compressor the way Flix used to do.

Adobe Flash seems also to use the ON2 encoder, because when I poke around the settings, that's the option.

Someone suggested to just use h.264 and change the suffix to .flv which seems to work...but I know we use flash because of compatibility of Mac and Windows, and because it seems to have a good quality even at low data rates. Do you know much about this area? I could change our website over and use h.264 for our flash... thanks!
