... it's pretty sweet.

During the beta testing... I got lucky to play with it a bit. If you use the motion blurring, you don't see the results in the Flash file unfortunately. However, most other things do export just fine. I didn't get a chance to test the sound though.

I didn't see anything and your Flash detector does not work. The link after you have been redirected to the "Download Flash" prompt is a broken link. I'm running IE 5, I have the latest Flash 5 plugin, G4 400mHz, 256, T-3 connection

I don't know what the problem is but the swf file does not show. I will go download the plug-in again and check back later.

Whoa, that was all done in AE? Well if that is not a sign of whats to come from Adobe, we will soon be well aware. The file size is kinda high though. I bet if you draged the swf into flash and exported it, it would be about 40k less.

Is there a way to import a pic sequece into flash in one shot. I posted new thread for this but thought i would jump on the band wagon and see if anyone could help.

Simulating video...but i dont want to manually put in a pic for each frame...you see.

thanks

well, share it then!!!

files named sequentially eg

1.jpg
2.jpg
3.jpg

when you import 1.jpg flash says "this appears to be part of a sequence, do you want to import the sequence?" you say yes and hey presto, so you can export a series of jpgs from a 3d or video package and import the sequence into flash, magic.

Sorry ha,
Your exactly right! I had it almost figured it out in the beginning but being greedy...i selected as many as i could in one shot.arrow key down..click down..click down click.....so when i got the big STACK!!! it occured to me that this was rediculous!..and knew there had to be a better way...thus. Clikcing the first image and .... well you know the rest.

Thanks for jumping in with the help mnm, see ya around.

mmm I guess you missed my question, was that swf exported from After effects like that or just the images?

just the image sequences as swf

i'm looking for a copy of driver though for the road frames, i think the best way to do vid is with looping frames.

i only spent an hour doing it so it's not optimised yet.

i like the scratching because later i can reuse the sequences backwards , twice the frames - half the size!!

haven't tried vectors yet but AE uses illustrator vectors so maybe i'll try later, oh and naturally the scripting is done in flash.

i'm going to have a do at reproducing some photoshot filters in flash and animating then AE stylee for even more value from the vid frames!

i don't usually publish experiments, but this is too good to miss video export on the mac since pc's have had it for a while with wildform
