Years ago we produced a number of training materials using Adobe Captivate and exported them in Flash (.swf) format. Since Flash will be de-supported in near future, we decided to convert all these materials to video (.mp4) format (as understood, such function is available Adobe Captivate).

However, the original files in .cptx format are lost; and now we only have the .swf files.

As we only have Adobe Captivate 2017 installed, we hope like to know whether it is possible to:

1) import the .swf file to Adobe Captivate; plus

2) edit the .swf file (e.g. remove the buttons or interactive features embedded in the original Flash file)

Thank you very much.

That will be a problem. There is no way to connvert the SWF to an editable format at all. Only way I see is to play the SWF, and capture it with the Video Demo feature (cpvcc-file). You will have to interact with the SWF and that will be captured in the video (which can only be published to mp4). There is a video demo editor which you can use to trim, to add static objects (maybe to blur some parts), to split, to pan and zoom.
