How to Convert SWF to Video and Vice Versa
If you love short funny cartoons like Happy Tree Friends or Simon’s Cat, you will be familiar with the SWF format (Flash). You can easily watch short SWF movies and cartoons online if you have the special add-on installed in your web browser, but saving these videos to watch on your computer can be difficult. The easiest way to do this is to record the SWF video from your screen and save it in your format of choice using Movavi Screen Capture Studio. Additionally, the program will help you record screen video in any format and convert it to SWF.
With Screen Capture Studio, you don’t need to search for special SWF video converters. Screen Capture Studio is simply the best tool for screen recording, saving online video and audio, capturing webcam, editing recordings, and much more! It will certainly serve you well as the perfect SWF files converter. After conversion to your choice of video format, you’ll be able to watch your favorite Flash videos whenever and wherever you want, on a computer or a mobile device – even if no Internet connection is available!
To learn how to convert SWF to video and vice versa, just download the Windows or Mac version of Movavi Screen Capture Studio and follow the simple instructions below.
Step 1: Install the Program
Open the downloaded file and follow the on-screen installation instructions. The process will take just a few minutes.
Step 2: Set the Recording Parameters
Launch Screen Capture Studio. If you’re a Windows user, you’ll see a launcher window first: just select Capture screen from the menu. For Mac users, the program will start right away.
Set the size of the recording area by dragging the edges of the yellow capture frame to the appropriate position. You can also use one of the size presets on the Select Capture Area list. Make sure there’s a green checkmark on the System Audio icon, indicating that the program will also capture the sound for the video you’re going to record.
Step 3: Capture the Video
Click REC and get ready to play your video; the program will start recording after a short countdown. If you need to take a break during recording, click Pause, or press F9 in Windows or ⌥ ⌘ 1 on a Mac. To finish the recording process, click Stop, or press F10 in Windows or ⌥ ⌘ 2 on a Mac.
Step 4: Save the Video in Any Format
When you finish recording, a special window will appear where you can preview the captured video. If necessary, you can trim unwanted material from the beginning and end of the clip; to do this, just drag the triangles to mark the required new start and end points. To convert the recorded SWF to regular video and save it, expand the Save as list, open the Video and audio tab, and choose any format you like. You can also do the reverse: if there’s an online video you want to convert to SWF, just record it with Screen Capture Studio and select SWF from the Save as list. To optimize the clip for watching on a smartphone, tablet, or other device, open the Devices tab and select the appropriate preset from the list. Finally, click the Save button and wait for a few minutes while the program is converting your file.
