I just downloaded the trial version of Adobe Animate as i want to learn how to create html5-banners. i have a short video clip I'm planning to use in the banner but i'm having problem importing it. The "Import video" is not "clickable" under files/import and when i click on "import to library", I just get a error message saying the file (FLV) saying it isn't able to be imported. I'm using a mac.

If you only need to play the video

H5 does not support direct import.

Please open the window---component

Video---Video,Double click

Window--Component parameters

Set source.

You can copy the video to a file folder.

Path Write file name only.

If you use video as a material

ANCC now not only can't import video,

And you're going to have problems importing a lot of bitmaps.

I suggest you if the video is not very big.

You can use other software to output a JPG sequence, and then import

See demo.

By the first method, you can.

Video Too Big

You can use the Adobe Media encoder CC 2018 Conversion.

The size is set smaller.

The quality is not too high.

Format MP4

the solution is the same as my original post, import an mp4.

 

if you have a video (eg, flv) that you need to convert, use adobe media encoder.

Hi there,

I am having difficulty importing H264 video files into Adobe Animate and Adobe Photoshop (both 2022 versions). This has been something I have never had difficulty with previously. It is not greyed out, I am using Actionsscript 3.0 - I can select the H264 file, and when I get to finish, it just lags there and does not load a video file or let me do anything at all. Each time I have had to force quit and restart the application. I have also recently updated my OS to Monterey. I also went into System Preferences, Security and Privacy, Accesibility to allow Animate and Photoshop full disk access. Please help!

I have a similar problem, I imported my video correctly but I can't see it when I test my animation on my browser. 

Do anyone have an idea?
