Swivel

1/27/13 by mike

Ever try to run an ancient DOS game on a modern PC? It's not easy, right? Imagine a day when the same thing happens to the Flash movies on Newgrounds. You want to watch The Final Task, but you can't. Even today, it's a struggle to watch a Newgrounds cartoon on your phone or tablet.

Newgrounds has 15 years of Flash content. That's 15 years of history and great animations that people could miss out on!

This is one of the main reasons that I've been working on Swivel, a new SWF-to-video converter. We want to preserve the legacy content on NG and keep it easily accessible, so that it can be watched for another decade!

Even forgetting about past content, it's been notoriously difficult for current users of Flash to get their movies out of the program. "How do I convert my Flash to video?" was the #1 question that every animator would ask me! Animators simply couldn't use the Flash software in the way they'd like. Very frustrating to hear.

But now Swivel is publicly released! It's been a series of narrow escapes from near impossibility, but I truly think Swivel is the best choice for converting your Flash animations to high-def video, so please give it a shot. Hope it helps!

Swivel

If I could hug and kiss you through my computer screen, I would, a million times over. You have just made my life so much easier. The even better thing is that you put it up for free, while other shit software cost an ungodly amount of cash.

Thank you!


i was so excited when i heard, i told everyone. known of my friends even have a clue what flash is, but i couldn't contain myself.

Thanks Mike, kisses


It's not just a program for internet. I've seen flash commercials on TV, and TV shows clearly made in Flash. Swivel will speed up production in several sectors. Thank you for making this, time to do my part and upload a decade of cartoons on NG.

amazing work. i used a lot of converters but this one is the best. my animation with tons of filter was converted flawlessly. a post detailing how you achieved this beautiful piece of software in AIR would be very welcome. BUT i think that it should be only free for supporters cuz it's too good to be free.


Mike!
I've just tried this software and it works Perfect!
This software will help many flash artist and therefore, You're Awesome.


Holy shit! this is epic man, so epic i can even create gameplay preview footage for my new game!!!! (if i ever make another one, but with the tests i did, o BOY!!!)

And from here on out Flash re-assigned AS from Action Script ... to After Swivel.


Really awesome that you release this complex tool for free.
Yet a tool that seems so basic that it should be included by Adobe in the first place, they should pay your for this lol.
