To avoid Adobe from blocking flash rendering, set your computer time to 2020 or earlier while decompiling and/or rendering swf files as a temporary fix.
This tutorial shows how to extract PNG images from very small SWF files.
- Open the file that you want in a web browser. You can do that in one of the following ways:
- Opening a web browser and dragging the file from your computer to the browser's window.
- Right click the file, choose "Open with" and select the web browser.
- Take a screenshot of the file (using the Print Screen button, or FN + Home if you're using a laptop), or right click and zoom in, and then take screenshots.
- If the file is bigger than your screen, take several screenshots, and later combine them in an image editor like GIMP, for merging them into a bigger image.
You can also zoom in in the following ways:
- Change the value of the "width" and "height" attributes of the <embed> element in your browser.
- Set a "zoom" style property (e.g. style="zoom: 4;") for making the file bigger.
Using Kurst SWF Renderer
Kurst SWF Renderer has a limit for exporting PNG images of ×4 the original file's size. If you want to convert small SWF files into bigger images, follow these steps.
- Open SwfModify
- Open a very big file (like this one).
- Go to the Modify list. Select the big file, and press the Replace button.
- Choose the file that you want. If you want an object from a file, extract it using SwfModify or Trillix.
- Position it above the original big file. Make sure that the new file doesn't get out of the edges of the original big file.
- To keep the proportions of the image, use the corner resizing regions rather than the regions in the middle of each border of the image.
- Press "Ok".
- Save your file. It's recommended to use "Save as" so you can later use the big placeholder file as well.
- Now, open the file in Kurst SWF Renderer.
- Select the file that you made, and export a PNG image from it (using the placeholder file from this example, a ×2.4 to ×2.7 content size will result a PNG image in a width of around 1500px or a height of 1000px.).
