    Importing AVI's into Flash MX on a Mac

    Hi all,

    Until recently, I have been using a product called WildForm Flix to import AVI movies into Flash format to enable import into other Flash movies. I was then using Flash 4 on the Windows platform.

    I am now using Flash MX on Mac OS 10.3, so I cannot use this product.

    Can anyone recommend an alternative AVI to Flash converter tool for OS X, or does Flash MX have the ability to import from AVI format built-in already ?

    Many thanks

    Ian.

    Can't remember off the top of my head what support MX has for direct FLV conversion.. I think it can encode with the older sorenson codec.
    I personally use sorenson squeeze for OS/X, it's pretty good and you can try it out here: http://www.sorensonmedia.com/solutio...d/comp_mac.php

    Thanks for the pointer

    Since posting, I've discovered that Wildform have passed support of the Flix product over to On2Technologies http://www.on2.com, and the product is available for the Mac.

    I also think I need to explore the new FLV Flash Video capability that appears to have been introduced with Flash MX.

    Regards,

    Ian.

    I suspect you need Mac Video to Flash Converter for that, if at all possible... if you are interested in it, here is a step by step guide about how to use it. My friend recommend to me, I used it to convert swf to flv and avi. works excellent. It can also convert mov, avi to swf/flv

    I think it deserves a try.
