Sometimes Mix-FX users want to import a Flash animation created with Mix-FX into their video editing software, or they don't like to use the Flash loadmovie action to import the Mix-FX animation into Flash or Swish. A small Freeware utility called SWF2AVI converts SWF files into AVI, or convert SWF files into a sequence Gif or BMP files. Both methods will be useful to you when you struggle to get the SWF files into a vector based software or in your video editing software.

First download SWF2AVI and create a Flash animation in Mix-FX.
When you save the animation set the Set the FPS to 30

1. Install and open "SWF2AVI"
2. Since Mix-FX Files are scriptbased you must first create a container for the movie, by going to "Extras/Auto Wrap Movie"
3. Select the SWF file you created with Mix-FX
4. Set the number of frames to 60 - (Note this may differ per animation)
5. Now goto File/Open and select the file "swf2avi-conainer.swf".
6. Click on "OK" to start the process.
7. When done, a message appears informing you that all the 60 frames have been created

To create an AVI please do the following:

8. Go to "Extras/Convert picture sequence to AVI".
9. Click on "add image"s - (note that you must create a sequence of BMP files to convert them into an AVI)
10. Select the first and last image of the created sequence
