Export PNG sequence from Adobe Flash

Though Adobe Flash might be getting hit hard in the web and mobile markets, we at Graphite Lab still use Adobe Flash for lots of non-web related tasks such as traditional animation, user interface [via scaleform GFX middleware] and illustration.

One of our current projects requires us to do some massive exporting from Flash using PNG sequences – which gave us a bit of trouble until a successful round of research lent the solution to our little problem.

While trying to export PNGs of an animation nested within a movie clip we noticed that it was exporting only the first frame over and over – which wasn’t at all what we wanted. We tried several different steps before realizing that a movie clip on the root will not preview or export nested animations, but a graphic will. So we made that quick fix and are now on our way to exporting PNGs with ease!
