    hello,
    With Flash you can export vidéo, choose QuickTime... animation+ if you want transparency or Photo Jpeg (512/384)
    Or if you export under Flash 5 format it can be read by quicktime/modul8...

    There is a lot of topic about this :wink:

    Sorry for my english :oops:

    I can't help you actually, I don't really know automator but you should give a try, It's a really intuitive way to make scripts

    Hi, I don't use Flash but I reckon there is a problem/issue with Flash in QT after QT 7.1.3. or thereabouts...?!
    Automator is great but so far I have only found 'QT' Actions within Automator (for moving image stuff) which means Flash conversion probably isn't supported as it is a problem from within QT itself - someone can put me right here, I'm bordering on 'out of my depth'.

    More usefully -
    This - http://www.flash-on-tv.com/flash-to-video.html - may be $40 well spent as it seems to support batch Flash to .mov conversion, haven't tried it but just Googled it for you.
    I found it on this Blog http://videos-flash.blogspot.com/ which looks useful.

    I initially thought http://www.ffmpegx.com/index.html may be able to help you but it looks not.

    Automator
    I am starting to enjoy Automator. If you haven't tried it yet give it a go.
    I can't programme but have made a couple of Automator actions to batch rotate still images 90 degrees left or right, which is always a pain in the workshops I run, it saves the originals to a seperate file, takes just a second and is available as an Automator plug-in right-click from Finder anytime - wicked.
    Also I have an Automator plug-in to find .movs with key words in the titles and then display the result in Safari which can be paged through.

    There are various Automator actions http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/automator/
    available for free or share from Apple. there are some realy useful freeware Photoshop Actions here.

    I blogged some stuff about Automator. Nothing that isn't in this post-

    Hope that helps - Enjoy - :-)

    Sorry, that Flash to Video converter doesn't appear to convert to .mov! ! ! what
    B****r - Seems crazy, but go to .avi or whatever... then use something like the Livid Union Batch to get to .mov.

    I'm waiting for one of you converter genius to come up with a simple obvious solution - Oh how I miss my Occams Razor.

    download the demo of Flash8 on the adobe/macromedia site...
    And you have one month to convert your Flash movies...

    in flash, import your .swf file (if you still have the .fla it's better) then file>export>export animation...
    Then comes the idea of Automator to convert all your 500 files in one click but don't know how to do that... maybe even with apple script it's possible
