Exporting graphics from the library

Can you export graphics in the Animate Library to a folder?  We are trying to rebuild old .swf into something HTML5 compliant.  I opened the original .fla and was the .png that made up the .fla.  It would be great if I could export them to a folder to build the new animations.

I'm entirely new to Animate.

Take care,

Susan

A while back João wrote a JSFL script for exporting audio files from an FLA.

A while back João wrote a JSFL script for exporting audio files from an FLA. Here's an adapted version that seems to work for exporting bitmaps.

function exportLibraryImagesToFiles() {
	var doc = fl.getDocumentDOM();
	if (!doc) return;

	var selectedItems = doc.library.getSelectedItems();
	if (!selectedItems.length) return;

	var folder = fl.browseForFolderURL("Choose an output directory.");
	if (!folder) return;

	var i, t, sym, bmpName;
	var count = 0;

	for (i = 0; i < selectedItems.length; i++) {
		sym = selectedItems[i];
		if (sym.itemType != "bitmap") {
			continue;
		}
		bmpName = sym.name.split("/").pop();
		// strip original extension
		t = bmpName.lastIndexOf(".");
		if (t != -1 && ["jpg", "jpeg", "png", "gif", "bmp", "psd"].indexOf(bmpName.substr(t + 1).toLowerCase()) != -1) {
			bmpName = bmpName.substr(0, t);
		}
		// do the thing
		sym.exportToFile(folder + "/" + bmpName + "." + (sym.compressionType == "photo" ? "jpg" : "png"));
		count++;
	}
	alert(count + " image(s) exported.");
}

exportLibraryImagesToFiles();

Copy into a text file and save with a .jsfl extension. Double-click to export any selected library images in the currently open FLA. For extra fanciness copy the JSFL into Animate's commands folder so it shows up under the Commands menu. In Windows this is located at :

 

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Adobe\Animate CC 2018\en_US\Configuration\Commands

 

Substituting the "2018" part for your version of Animate.
