Have some flash video files (like flash animation, flash movie or flash cartoons) that you wish to post up onto your own website or blog, but need to import flash video .flv/.swf into FCP first for editing as below?
Q: Best way to edit a string of flash (fla or swf) movies in Final Cut Pro?Hi,You can not directly import flash or swf files into FCB and retain all of the original picture perfectly as far as I am aware.
Therefore I have looked into a variety of conversion methods however none really convert a .fla or swf into a movie file type (such as avi or wmv) without significant loss of quality and pixelation.Is there any advice out there from the pro's, on the best method of getting a string of flash scenes in to FCP while maintaining broadcast quality, so that I can then tie them together by editing (cutting and editing scenes through transitions for e.g.), as well as adding titles, etc in post production.
