    I need help converting a flash file I downloaded off the web into a quicktime movie and I have no idea on how to go about doing this.

    Thanks for the help.

    QuickTime Pro will do this for you. However, at least in my experience, the converted file loses all of its interactivity. I know QuickTime supports interactive movies; I have no idea how to export something to this format, though. If you help me, you'll be helping the original poster too.

    You can download a 30-day trial of Flash MX here.

    Then with it you can export the Flash file as a Quicktime movie.

    Although I must add, I've never tried this myself -- just noticed it in the 'Export' options.

    Flash n00b: me.

    Flash source files are .FLAs, - the outputted files are .SWFs. It's highly unlikely that you will be able to open an .SWF in Flash and export it as a Quicktime movie without any problems (but give it a try-Flash has SOME ability to read back in .SWF files). If you had a source FLA file, you could easily export it directly from flash as a quicktime movie.
