SWF animation, not FLV in SWF container
Authored by: µø˜˚´¥ on Feb 23, '08 06:00:07AM

VisualHub (and FFmpegX for that matter) can convert SWF files that are container formats for FLV video. This is why there is the checkbox for "Raw .flv format" in VisualHub under the "Flash" tab.

But SWF animations are a whole other thing. Rather than video, they consist of things like still images moving along a defined vector. As far as I know, there is no native OS X program to convert them to video.

SWF and FLV player, if you buy the Pro version, will convert SWF animation to an image sequence, which can then be converted to video using any version of QuickTime Pro.
