Export to MP4 out of Flash

Hi,

The fact that this hasn't been implemented has somewhat shocked me but with all the MP4 usage out there (H.264 encoding) for iOS and web - with great compression capabilities, I'm surprised there isn't a native way to export directly to MP4 out of Flash. It really increases production time and increases hours when using the After Effects or exporting an MOV/AVI/FLV/FLA and using the adobe media encoder methods. Is there a way to streamline this so it will just export as it would any other video (Using the Adobe Media Encoder). I did see that the CC version is adding a feature that may do the trick if you can in fact export to the encoder and queue a series of MP4 conversions. That would be a huge help if that's the case, but is that how it will work? Please advise, since I still use Flash for a great deal of animation and batching multiple Flash files would save a ton of time (and lessen errors).

Thanks in advance for reading,

Peter

Hi Peter,

I was having the same trouble, and got to the point where I just decided to type in ".mp4" over ".mov" in the export video section in Adobe Flash CC. Lo and behold it worked! Media encoder automatically opened and took care of it!

Good luck!

Hi Theo,

Thanks for the tip. The conversion worked for audio but the frame is just black (for both attempts when saved as .mov or .mp4) Looks like its not converting the video for some reason. Any help would be appreciated.

When you talk about converting the video, do you mean H.264 video that you have in your timeline? If so, that's normal, it doesn't get exported.

It's an animation using multiple frames, layers and audio. I am trying to export out a video which will be easy to upload to my wordpress site. mp4 seems to be the obvious choice used by html sites.
