Question: I got an existing swf file which is like a flash file of a picture gallery with navigation. There are some borders on the edges that I want to crop. I’m talking about cropping here but not resizing. Can any flash/swf expert let me know how to crop swf file and save it as swf as well? Thanks for all help.
