I've created a 5 min Animate .FLA project (30fps) paired with a soundtrack I created in Logic Pro, and I want to export for YouTube. When I export as a .SWF, it creates a nice compact SWF movie (8MB) with sound, which plays nicely on my Mac, but that file can't be uploaded to YouTube, can it? If so, that would be ideal.

 

When I seleted "Export Video/Media," it created a 2.5GB .mov file that would not open in QuickTime. When I select "Export Movie", the only options are to export as .SWF, or as a .JPG Sequence, .GIF sequence, .PNG sequence or .SVG sequence. (I doubt those last 4 are what I want.)

 

Is there another option or what am I doing wrong? Using Animate v21.0.3 on a Mac Mini M1, OS11.2. Thx in advance.

Hi, in the Export Video/Media window select the following:Format: H.264         Preset: YouTube 1080p Full HDThese options will give you a Full HD MP4 video optimized for YouTube. If your video is in 4k you can change the preset to YouTube 2160p 4K Ultra HD.

Mario (or anyone) - this works, to a point. Following these steps creates a nice .mp4 file that opens and plays in QuickTime on my Mac, but there is no sound. The video looks great, though.

Why do I lose the soundtrack doing this? Thanks

Excellent, thanks - that works. So many options and windows - I never would have found that. In fact, I'd never opened the Properties panel of the soundtrack before.
