Flash Player EOL - Can I still export MOVs from Flash Professional CS6?

I have Flash Professional CS6 and use it to make animations. I export my FLA files as MOVs, which I then convert to MP4 video. However, in that process, Flash Professional CS6 does generate first a SWF file. It then converts that SWF to MOV, then deletes the SWF. In my Publish settings, I have "Target: Flash Player 11.2" and SWF is the only output option. So, after the death of Flash Player, will I still be able to export MOVs from Flash Professional CS6? Thanks!

I'm not sure.  You're talking about a product that shipped in 2012.   You can set your system clock forward to Feb 1 2021 and see what happens.

I suggest you move to Animate CC (subscription required).

Thanks but my question is: will I still be able to export MOVs from Flash Professional CS6 after the End of the Flash Player? Do you know? Does anybody?

Tried the clock re-set and everything still worked OK. So I guess this means player that came with CS6 is not set to self-destruct. Hopefully Microsoft's purge of the player - which (I quote) "will remove it from the Windows operating system"(!) - will overlook it too. On the point about CS6 being from 2012, the Animate CC export process looks to be at least similar (https://helpx.adobe.com/animate/using/exporting-content.html). Last but not least: So long Flash! You were fantastic, a beautiful piece of software, we had a lot of fun together.
