You can export a series of image files from an individual movie clip, button, or graphic symbol in the Library or on the Stage. During export, Flash Pro creates a separate image file for each frame in the symbol. If you export from the Stage, any transforms (scaling, skewing, etc.) you have applied to the symbol instance are preserved in the image output.
To export a PNG sequence:
- Select a single movie clip, button or graphic symbol in the Library or the Stage.
- Right click it and choose Export PNG Sequence.
- In the Save As dialog, choose a location for the output and click OK.
- In the Export PNG Sequence dialog, set your desired options. See below.
- Click Export to export the PNG sequence.
The export options include:
Width - The width of the image output. You can scale the output by changing this value. The default is the width of the symbol content.
Height - The height of the image output. You can scale the output by changing this value. The default is the height of the symbol content.
Resolution - The resolution of the image output. The default is 72dpi.
Colors - The bit depth of the image output. You can select 8, 24, or 32 bit. The default is 32 bit, which supports transparency. If you select 24 bit or 8 bit, which do not support transparency, the Background setting changes to Stage. See below.
Background - The color to use as the background color for the image output. This setting is only available when the Colors option is set to 8 or 24 bit. When Colors is set to 32 bit, the image background is always transparent. When the Colors option is set to 8 or 24 bit, the Background option defaults to the Stage color. With 8 or 24 bit images, you can also change the setting to Opaque and then select a background color from the color picker, or choose an alpha value for the background to create transparency.
Smooth - Toggles whether to apply smoothing to the edges of the image output. Turn this option off if you are not using a transparent background and the images may be placed on a background color that is different from the current color of the Stage.
