Swivel

Posted by mike - January 27th, 2013


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!

So stoked that this is finally out of beta!!
This is such a vital part of Newgrounds already.
Thank you Mike! (and Stamper and everyone else who helped)

It's everything I dreamt of. Amazing job, man!

You are an amazing person, thank you.

Haha finally a news post

This is great, I'm using it on my next project!

Thank you sir!

YOU DA MAN MIKE! :D

I'm now convinced Albert Einstein's got nothin' on you, Mike.

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.
