hello,

Should i export Flash file as PNG sequence or swf?

i need to comp flash footages in After Effect.

So,would png sequence or swf video work good in AE?

Reason for this question arises as PNG sequence take longer time to render than swf.

i am falling shot of time.

however,swf format in AE gives some pixelation on rendered output.

can you pls guide me on the AE render settings!

should i render it as PNG or TGA sequence to take it to Adobe Premiere for editing?

You shouldn't export to swf unless you are planning to use it on the web or to import it to a Flash project.

In my experience, the faster renders are the uncompressed ones, also are the better for re-using the footage because you lost no quality.

That would be a good choice if file size is not a problem. For the PC AVI uncompressed or Quicktime with the animation codec on the Mac.

I hope this helps
