Any ideas how I can convert a SWF to a bitmap sequence on a mac? Google is bringing up nothing but Windows shareware nonsense.
Oh yeah, it's scripted... Export Movie won't work (even with a wrapper SWF)
the screen capture might be your best chance, something i've done in the past when screen capturing (to avoid laggin issues) I set both my video capture and swf frame rates at 10fps capture the video and then retime it using after effects or something similar. Works real good for high res swfs
Flash CS3 added the ability to export scripted animation to quicktime movies (still haven't done it personally, but its there).
(then you could convert the quicktime to a picture sequence, either via export from quicktime player pro, or a recent version of photoshop, etc. been a long time since I tried exporting a picture sequence directly from flash, but I was never happy with the quality -- color dithering or artifacts, etc.)

If you're still in flash8-land or earlier...yeah, screencap it.
mac = iShowU or snapz pro. (or Screen Flow, which is more expensive, or Jing which does swf video output only)
