Question: I have a SWF file which has been recorded using Adobe Captivate. Now, I want to use Premiere Pro for my editing. However, I have never had a try to edit a SWF file with Premiere and cannot figure out how to do it. Firstly, is it possible? If it is not possible, can anyone recommend a solution?
Generally, you can import SWF files to Adobe Premiere Pro with an alpha channel, but the audio is usually not retained, the interactive content and scripted animation are also not retained. What retained is the animation defined by keyframes in the main, top-level movie.
To avoid above mentioned problems, it is ideal for you to convert SWF to Adobe Premiere Pro editable file formats.
