2 Free Methods to Convert Flash to Animated GIF

“How can I get a free method to convert Flash to Animated GIF?” Questions like this can be easily found on Yahoo Answers. Though there are various ways to convert Flash to Animated GIF directly, most of them charge. For users who just want to make the conversion from SWF to Animated GIF happens for one time or two, it is really unnecessary to pay a price for corresponding apps.

Why will someone tend to get Animated GIF out of Flash file? Featured in small storage and excellent animated effects, Flash file is a desired entertainment choice. There are several advantages to convert SWF to Animated GIF. For one thing, through the conversion, one can not only gain the animated effects of the original Flash, but also get a file also featured in small storage. For another, it is a better way to solve the incompatibility of Flash to various applications. After all, it is easier to get an image scanner than a SWF player.

Therefore, this post will present you two free methods to convert Flash to Animated GIF. Comparing with those charged applications, those methods may be either time-consuming or operation-complicating. However, they are also the best choice for users who tend to convert Flash to Animated GIF for one time or two.

Method I: Adobe Premiere Pro CS4

As a powerful video editor released by Adobe, Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 is a combination of video editor and video converter. Moreover, with the help of an alpha channel, Flash can be imported by Premiere CS4. Though the audio and interactive content of the Flash won’t be retained, it does no harm once you just want to convert SWF file to Animated GIF image.

Step 1: Download and launch Adobe Premiere CS4. Open it, and then choose “Import…” option in the drop-down menu of “File” to import the Flash file.

Step 2: Click “Export” option in the drop-down menu of “File” and select “Media…” option to enter a new panel. Then set the output file as Animated GIF in the drop-down menu of “Format“.

Step 3: After all those steps, click “Start Queue” option to start the conversion from SWF to Animated GIF.

Though Adobe Premiere CS4 also charges, it is provided for free in 30 days for new users. However, the conversion process is quite time-consuming. For a 2.3M Flash file, it takes over five minutes to manage the conversion process.

Method II: Ulead GIF Animator 5

As a professional tool designed to make Animated GIF, Ulead GIF Animator 5 not only enables you to make photos to GIF image but also video to GIF image. However since it merely support AVI video, a free way to convert SWF to AVI is required.

Step 1: Mange the conversion from SWF to AVI

1. Download and launch SWF Editor, open it and then click “Import…” in the drop-down menu of “File” to import the Flash file.

3. After all those steps, the conversion from SWF to Animated GIF has completed.

Both SWF Editor and Ulead GIF Animator 5 can be used as free software for a period of time for new users. Since the AVI file you get from SWF Editor is extremely large in storage, it really takes time to manage the conversion from AVI to Animated GIF. Therefore this method is not time-costing but also operation-complicating.

Those are the two free methods to help you convert Flash to Animated GIF. Though they both are not flawless, they are best choices for users who want to do the conversion for a few times. For those who want a professional tool to manage the conversion, they can refer to Moyea SWF to Video Converter.

Flash Schools and Flash Tutorials 3 – Flash Embedded in HTML

We have introduced several ways to create Flash SWF in the previous blog titled “Flash How To“, then what to do next? Scroll down and you will see the topic today – embed the created Flash SWF into an HTML webpage.

To embed the Flash movie you just made into an HTML page, go back to the Flash program where you initially created the Flash object, and then do the following steps:

Step 1: Open the Flash movie you have created and export it by renaming the Flash file “yourflashname.swf”, exit after saving it in your web folder.

Step 2: Open the HTML page where you want to embed this Flash movie and insert this code:

flash-embedded-in-html

Note: This is the minimum code you need to embed a Flash movie in a browser. A broken icon will appear on the Web page if the user does not have the Flash plug-in installed.

Note: In the code above there is both an “embed” tag and an “object” tag. This is because the “object” tag is recognized by Internet Explorer, and Netscape recognizes the “embed” tag and ignores the “object” tag.

Step 3: Open the HTML file in your browser and check your first flash movie online.

Step 4: (Optional) If you have problem embedding the direct Flash SWF file, try to convert SWF to video or other web-friendly formats, for example, AVI, FLV, MP4, GIF, etc. This indirect way is for easy embedding while retaining the original animation effects.
