Launch Moyea SWF to Video Converter. Click the button in the "Input file" field to import your source Flash movie to the program.

Now, you can proceed to the step of conversion. Click on and the following "Settings" dialogue will pop up with a full-screen interface as the background asking you to set the Conversion "Settings" to test the Capture Screen. (One detail that demands your attention is the alternative choice of 16 bits/pixel and 32 bits/pixel methods for capturing frames during the conversion. The 32 bits/pixel method will not cause any video quality loss, but it will use much more of your CPU):

Click on the "Next" button and the program will start testing the capturing:

The Capture-Speed "Settings" dialog box pops up after the testing. To get accurate results, please interact with the Settings dialogue when the Flash file asks you to do so. Note that lowering the capture speed can improve the conversion quality:

Click the "Start Capture" button, the first frame of the Flash file will be set as the first frame of the final video file:

The conversion is completed and we have a 32-bit RGBA AVI video file generated from the SWF file.
