Swishzone has long been known for making swf products that are easy on the pocketbooks as well as the user. Whilst not having all the compression capabilites of sorenson technologies, Swishvideo2 is a highly useful inexpensive tool for converting a wide selection of video formats to .swf or .flv and unlike competitors you can store and send variables from the timeline to the parent movie IN FLV

The process is simple.

Import a vid format (.wmv, .mov .mpeg .avi) from the file menu. From there you can use either SwishVideo's easy settings or manually set the parameters of your movie using the tabs. Making it easy for the novice or precise for the advanced user.


Cropping and sizing: Use only the space and dimensions you want. Format Choice: for those occasions when you want to import the swf as oppose to load movie. You can choose whether you want MX format JPEG or importable jpeg Overlay image: When you want a permanent image overlay branding the movie. Audio format: insert a soundtrack over your movie. Choose not only compression amount but compression type (mp3, adpcm pcm) Export mp3:<<< way cool Event Handler for sending variables at specific frames. Now for the good stuff. A wide selection of controls you can use to run you moive that work not only with swf format but flv. when you export to flv SwishVideo will create a wrapper swf, no need for FMX or scripting with FMX Simply select the type of controller you want select generate html and it will generate swf and html (when export is for swf) or swf html and flv. One minor note... the html generator puts out a lousy object code which can't be read by a number of browsers so be prepared to write your own object embed code. $49.99 makes it a great product for the price.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
