I am trying to export a flash file as an animated gif. (client cannot use swf files)
But the text that "fades" in and out now only appears as a white box.

How can I get the animated gif to accurately represent my flash animation?

Flash exports animated GIF very poorly...  I suggest you export a video format like MOV and then use other tool to convert that to GIF...  I find that is the best solution to keep the quality...

Well the Quicktime movie looks good. Much better.


Thanks!


Any suggestions on a Mac utility that can convert the QT mov file to an animated gif?

I am sure QuickTime Pro can do the job fine...

I did a quick google and GIFfun came up...
