Does anyone know how to convert a swf. into fla.?
Cause when you open a swf. in Flash, and choose View -> Bandwidth Profiler, you CAN see how the movie was developed...sort of... So there must be a way to do that!

It ain't going to happen...in essence, a .swf file is a .fla file which has sacrificed its editing capabilities for the sake of file size reduction and internet play-ability.

First of all there's no easy, automatic way to get the FLA from the SWF file. You'll have to do the conversion manually.

1 You can import the SWF (not open) into Flash and get some of your symbols and just one layer of the movie. (Protected SWFs won't import but you can remove the protection by third party tools)

2 You can extract some other data by 3rd party tools from the SWF. Check http://www.openswf.org , SWF Browser can extract sounds.

3 You can extract MovieCLips and import them so that you can focus on reconstruction of the MC.

4 Action Script Viewer, the script decompilation tool, lets you get the actionscripts (v5 support coming soon, i'm the publisher of ASV). ( http://www.buraks.com/asv )
