I'm new to Flash and need to export an animated gif from the flash file provided to me, all my attempts come out flat, but the swf file is fine. The file is also protected somehow. This is really an embarrasing question for me, but it's important and I'm getting frustrated. Can someone please help me?

I do not know if there are free 3rd party software out there that can do this, but there are softwares out there selling that can do this easily. anyway even if you are able to export the pics out. it will be piece by piece, i doubt it will be a animated gif. you may have to put it together yourself. ;)

I would just recommend taking a screen shot of each frame in the animated gif...  use snagit from Techsmith... I think they have a free working demo...  if not, "get it" some other way ;)


then just capture each frame and save it as a gif... then rebuild it in Fireworks or some other program....

i have an extractor/unprotector for swf ... which would make life a bit easier ... it extracts the elements like gif & shapes etc ... maybe that could help.
