SWiX is a program that converts SWF files to XML files, and allow editing and saving them in this format.
- Its Undo and Redo buttons don't always work properly after pasting content. It's recommended to copy the entire file to a text editor that highlights the XML markup for an easier editing, and then pasting what you are left with into SWiX and save.
Command line interaction
You can also use your command line to use SWiX, both for converting to and from XML:
<# first, navigate to the folder on which SWiX is isntalled or replace 'SwiXConsole' with the path to of the exe file the output file will be the same as the input (but the file type will match the output format, e.g. .swf -> .xml) #> # next line will take 'foo.swf' as the input, and convert it to 'foo.xml' SwiXConsole -i foo.swf # next line will take 'foo.xml' as the input, and convert it to 'foo.swf' SwiXConsole -i foo.xml
You can also specify a wanted output file name, if you like:
# convert 'foo.swf' to 'bar.xml' SwiXConsole -i foo.swf -o bar.xml # convert 'foo.xml' to 'bar.swf' SwiXConsole -i foo.xml -o bar.swf
This requires either opening your command line, or interacting with
SwiXConsole.exe using some programming language. The main advantage in this is that your conversion will happen in seconds, and you are very unlikely to run into frozen-screen issues when waiting for SWiX's GUI to render the highlighted XML.
