    Very cool man. Thanks! Don't know why I couldn't find that myself... I feel just a hair more pathetic.

    LOL, j/k. I still rule all (well, some anyway...)

    Cheers,

    I have an .swf and I wanted to convert it to .fla so I could make some minor changes ( I lost the .fla )

    Is that possible? 'cause I downloaded 'Sothink SWF Decompiler' but I couldn't see a way to do it... I could only export each part separately... and it was the trial so I couldn't even export much of it at all.

    Any other possibilities?

    I ended up trying the above programs, but they didn't really do anything for me, either. I uninstalled them...

    You're gonna find that most SWF decompilers don't help at all.

    My advice to you is to burn your FLAs on a CD-RW so you don't lose them. It kinda sucks that you did, but there's no easy way to just convert it back to FLA from SWF.

    I wouldn't waste any more time trying to decompile the files. I'd start working on a new FLA if I were you.

    I didn't want it so that I could replace lost files. I never lost any. It was because I wanted to check out code and what not from other files to help me learn. Not a big deal.

    Chris,
    My apologies for not being clearer. My message was just a general reply to both you and memphis.

    There is a program called ActionScript Viewer (available at http://www.buraks.com/asv/) that can get you some of the actionscript from SWF movies. It isn't bad if you just want to learn some of the code.

    Good luck

    Not to put on an ethics hat... but you could e-mail the site and ask for code rather then just taking it. Some designers may not appreciate you taking their .swfs and converting them to .FLAs (but those who are really uptight about it will protect their code). Be careful with copywritten sites, also.

    Just a nitpicky suggestion...
