Please help me! i've made a banner in flash advertising an event coming up soon. I need to convert it to an animated gif image so that i can have it as my signiture on forums. I tried publishing it as a gif image but it only saved the first frame - please help me - your knowledge would be extremely appreciated cheers
I have yet to come across a solution of doing this, never really thought about it before. Have you tried dropping the frame rate so each stays on for say 4 seconds, giving you time to take a screenshot of each?
This way you can create a .gif and copy each frame into the gif ...
I've seen some info on how to do it - it says you have to publish it as gif image by unchecking the other publishing options on the file > publish settings option. also you can modify the file path so that it saves it as a gif - but none of these seem to work!
i've used a decompiler to take something like that apart. Then once it's "decompiled" you have the images, and putting them into a rotating gif wouldn't be difficult... but the fla is definitely going to run better than the rotator.
This is a very simple process. The difficulty that others may have had are most likely due to an incorrect setting for the movie's symbols. If you have the animation in a movie clip, it may not export to an animated gif properly. The elements you want to export to an animated gif should be a Graphic Symbol and they should be on the stage of the movie itself. If you have a movie clip you can copy and paste the elements into a graphic symbol and place them on the stage so that you may export them. The only trouble that I have run into is slight color conversions. You may need to knock the graphic's colors down to websafe 216. I have also corrected the colors in ImageReady after export from the fla to gif. If you are still having trouble post your questions here.
i dont use fla sh anymore and its not installed on my comp, but there should be a setting under the file menu called "Export Movie As..." or something like that. Hit that, in your choice of filetypes to save as, hit ANIMATED gif. Make sure its animated, I believe there are 2 gif settings
Go To File-->Export Movie...
Input File Name
Select Animated gif, not gif sequence
