Drag and drop Flash files directly to iMovie3 Apps
Previously , iMovie (1.x & 2.x0) only recognized imported Flash format files when one converted them to DV streams first. The new iMovie 3.01 converts Flash .swf files on the fly when you drag and drop them into the iMovie 3 clips shelf.

How it works-
Authored by: deadfish on Feb 12, '03 02:51:22PM

This is a result of iMovie 3 being able to accept any quictime input.

Up to Flash 5 is fully supported in quicktime 6 (so if you try a flash MX or 6 swf this shouldn't work)

When iMovie get ahold of the flash file it probably renders it to DV anyhow, but saving you the pain of exporting to a DV file then reimporting. This friends is why the extensible architecture of quicktime is a good thing.
