    Coruscant, but Boston will do.
    I have a Flash .exe file and I want to import it in to Final Cut Pro. How do I make this happen?

    Thanks for the help.

    A .exe file is a windows executable file ... typically a program/application or a script. Most Flash video files will either have a .flv or .swf extension. Verify the source of the file in question.

    Sounds like you will need to somehow convert these Flash Projector files to .swf and/or .fla files. One of these formats can probably then be exported as a DV from either Flash or maybe even quicktime.

    Sorry, but this is largely speculation, but it sounds like a good start. I'll see if I can find more info, as it is a good question.

    I'm not sure of the correct way of getting flash > FCP, but the way I do it involves exporting the flash to quicktime (in flash) then the quicktime imported in to FCP.

    However, if the flash has alpha channels, then the way I do it is more complex. Flash > PNG image sequence (in Flash), Open image sequence (in Quicktime), save as mov or mp4, import to FCP.

    Edit: The Exe file isn't going to do you any good in this situation. You need the fla or swf in order to export these. You'll also need flash.
