    They're simply incompatible. It's possible that some SWFs would contain graphics that can easily be converted. But in most cases, the entire purpose for a SWF is because it is something you can't do in just HTML.

    I would, generally speaking, suggest a screen capture.


    Edit: Hmm... Google Swiffy looks cool. I suppose maybe more of this is possible than I imagined. But I still don't think everything can be converted. I'd guess that might be part of the reason behind the 1mb limit.

    Edit 2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Swiffy
    It does say there that it supports a subset of functionality. So depending on what you need to convert, it might work.
    That page also mentions "Wallaby", which works with a FLA project file-- that's what I'd look into if I were you.

    Well, there would be an easy workaround, I believe: create extremely compressed (and ugly) versions of the images and embed those in the SWF. Then convert the SWF with Swiffy. Then in the HTML5 version, simply replace the bad images with better ones. (By the way, 3mb is actually a large filesize for that graphic-- it took a few more seconds to load on my computer than seemed reasonable for just the top banner on a website. Maybe you can compress it anyway and have it still look somewhat decent.)

    Whether it will convert well, I don't know. But you can certainly try it. The question is how those boxes will convert. If Swiffy can do that, great. If not, I don't know what to suggest.


    In general, I don't see the point in converting from SWF to HTML-- unless you need to do this very often (and why would you? except perhaps updating old sites?), then you could just do it manually.

    In fact, duplicating that in HTML seems relatively easy:
    1. An image slideshow with a fade. Easy.
    2. As needed, some kind of box images with animation, if you really want that.

    I'm sure you could make something that at least roughly approximates this using Javascript. If you need it to be perfect, I don't know.

    Yes I am trying it to optimize with this one swfcompress.com & then to give in swiffy. Yes as you assume, same thing me also assuming.........that quality will definitely be very bad. But as you suggest I am going to try & yes Daniel, I will also let you know what I did so to just share the information

    Thank you Daniel for your help & suggestion

    Thanks
