Exporting Glitch-Free Videos in Adobe Flash

It’s no secret that Adobe Flash can sometimes have a hard time exporting videos. This is especially true with complex or longer works. Audio can go off sync, frame rates can drop, videos can have weird glitches and so on. The technique in this tutorial will give you a gauranteed clean render. Just know you will need three pieces of software (Flash, Vision Lab Studio (or something comparable) and a video editor) and some time set aside to do this.

    The problem with my flash movie is just that the sound is out of sync, even before I export it… but only when I run the entire ‘test movie’, not when I test just one scene..I already have QuicktimePro, do I need extra software beside that? Is there any free image-to-video converter software for macintosh?

    You can do it also in Blender. Search for tutorial in Youtube “Converting Image Sequences into a Video in Blender 2.63″. Thank you for great videos!

    When I export directly as mov. I get artifacts.When I export indirectly as jpg/gif and then turn them into a sequence using Quicktime pro 7, the symbols I made in Flash (Cars, birds, people walking ect.) doesn’t move, the symbol is frozen.It seems artifacts or frozen symbols are my only options, unless someone here has a better way? (besides not using symbols, cuz I rly need symbols)

    you can import images into a sequence in blender 3D (which is free) but if you arent very familiar with the software, its a little difficult

    I don’t know of a software that lines up all your images and makes them into a video for free, but I do know of one like this that is cheap. I think Sony Vegas Movie Studio does it. If you shop around you can find it for under $50.

    Quicktime Pro (7, not quicktime X), lets you import an image sequence, then lets you export it to any coded you want. I export to Pro Res to edit on FCP.I also try to edit my audio before I even animate, so I can import an audio file into flash, start the audio right at the first frame, so when I export the Image sequence and make a video, I just bump the audio right up to the beginning of the vid, and everything is synced up. Just make sure to keep an eye on frame rates (24 FPS, etc)

    Hey Lilredhead!I know very good and free program to convert images into video.Its called virtual dub, just google it and download on official site, you don’t have to install it. It have lots of advanced options but you just have to import first image and it will automatically make video, then just export in AVI and edit as you have said!

    Doesnt it seem unreasonable that a 500$ program can’t export files correctly?

    Hey, nice tutorial but here are a couple of pointers.You don’t need to use Visionlab at all in this process, you can just import the image sequence straight into After Effects. Also, when doing an image sequence I would advise using png instead of jpeg as you get the option of using an alpha channel which is important for After Effects.The image sequence technique does not work with v-cams so it can be quite limiting. I think the best options are either screen cap or segmented video export.

    It looks like they have renamed (and updated) the software to be called HitFilm. I see two versions listed, a $149 and a $399 version. After Effects also does this method too, but that’s expensive as well. I’m surprised there isn’t a free software to do this simple task. Maybe there is and someone will find something soon.

    That’s right, I forgot AE can do that. Thanks for the note. Hopefully AE users will read this and substitute that during step #2.

    I like these tutorials, very informative! I’d just like to add that Adobe After Effects has the option to import JPEG and PNG sequences as movie clips that can be edited and exported, which is convenient, but a little pricey. Keep up the great work with these videos :D

    How much does visionlab cost?

    Wow thats a really good program. And how do you make it in Anime Studio ? Which program is easier for you ? And which was easier to learn ?
