How to Convert SWF to GIF without Quality Distortion

Couples of days ago, my friend Amy asked me how to convert an SWF Flash file containing the animation to a gif file, because she would like to use the image for her blog navigation menu. What disappointed her greatly was that when exporting the SWF to GIF, the image turned out to be muzzy.

As is well known, SWF is being widely used on video sharing websites or providing interactive service. GIF, as an image file format, is smaller than SWF Flash file and it's browser-compatible, capable of supporting animation without taking up too much space. That's why many people like my friend Amy would like to make full use of the GIF file. Catering to the demand, Firecoresoft SWF to GIF Converter for Mac (SWF Converter for Windows) was born. It can not only convert SWF to GIF without image quality distortion, but also allows you to extract image from SWF and save as other formats such as JPG, BMP and PNG.
