Join Anastasia McCune for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting artwork in the SVG format, part of Flash Professional: Creative Cloud Updates.
…If you've got artwork you've created in Flash, that you'd like to reuse in…scalable vector graphics, or SVG format, Flash now offers you an export option.…The SVG 1.1 specification is used when exporting.…But for now, SVG export in Flash supports only static art, not animations.…Text on the stage, however, can be exported.…So I'm going to be using the file called svg.fla, and we've got two layers in it.…Intro screen has this Monster Match-Up graphic in it.…
I'll just turn it on and off so you…can see it, and then the monsters layer has this…little movie clip of a monster, and there's many other…movie clips with other monsters further on down the timeline.…So to export out some graphics in SVG format,…you have to specify what frame you want to export.…So I'm going to choose frame 30.…And between these two different layers, we've got some…graphics that are vector-based, and some that are bitmaps.…That way, you can see the options about…how the bitmaps are treated during the export.…Exporting is simple.…
I'm just going to go to the File menu, Export and then Export Image.…
