I need to take a flash movie I created and put it on dvd for my portfolio and was wondering if anyone knew what file type I should export it to do this.

My guess would be to save as flv. A quick search found this guide for turning flv into dvd but whether that is ok depends on what exactly you want to do - settting up menus, multiple videos on one dvd etc. is gonna be more work. Either way, videohelp.com is probably the best place to look for info.

Personally I'd export it as a numbered frame sequence then recompile it into one video with video software that's better at exporting things, but that's the way I did it six years ago and the tech has moved on a lot since then.

I am applying to transfer to a different grad school and they say for all multimedia files to have them burned onto dvd and ready for viewing. I did this PSA on flash that makes people cry (amazed I did that) and making it a file on dvd seemed confusing to me. Usually I just turn it into a quicktime movie and burn it to a CD, or embed it into html and just send a link to a web site if I need to have it viewed.

I've been looking around a bit, and this might be a way of doing it:

http://www.avi-swf-convert.com/

This will convert your .swf file to an .avi file, and from there you could use DVD authoring software like Nero to burn it as a DVD. Bear in mind that things that are driven by actionscript probably won't work - if you used actionscript driven effects then it gets a lot more complicated.

Thanks for the info. I looked at the links you gave me and yeah my flash is filled with actionscript and that appears to be a problem for the DVD conversion. Anyway, I have to send off my portfolio this week and when I read the new instructions they recently put up for the program it said CD ROMs are ok for screen shots of movies, so I'm just going to take a chance and burn this little PSA as a quicktime video like I have in the past. When I was re-reading those instructions anyway it seems like the DVD requirement is meant more for film students/professionals than graphic designers.

It sounds like you've got it sorted, but I had a new thought: how about recording directly from the screen? So, you start recording everything that happens on the monitor, play the file, then edit off the bits at either end that you don't want. That would avoid problems with actionscript.

There's some freeware out there that should do the trick:

At work we use Fraps and that seems pretty good:

That is very cool. I'll keep that in mind if I have to make a dvd after all. My portfolio arrived at the school I'm applying to on Saturday, so they probably got it today. Yay.

Hi LoLo,

I think flv would be the best choice because of its lite, especially the flv video has been accepted as the default online video format by many popular sites, such as Youtube.
So it will be much more convenient when you want to share your video with the world.

Now I'm using a program could be helpful for you, not only it can convert flash to various video formats, but also image, keeping the original effects. And free trial version is also OK.

This is the download page: http://www.swfkits.com/swf_to_video/ .

Hope it will help you!
