Quality drop when exporting flash to .mov file?

AyumiNazu Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Professional General Artist

I want to post an animation I did to DA, but when I exported the .fla file to .mov, the colors changed and looked very washed out. The music also sounds a little echo-like and muffled. Can someone please tell me how I can fix this problem?

I did file-->export movie-->quick time
The compressor quality is set to best. The compressor type is H.264
The music is set to MPEG-4 audio, 48 kHz, 16bit stereo
Prepare for internet streaming-->fast start
Render size is 550x400

I'm using Flash CS6, but I'll try any instructions to an older version of Flash!

It can happen when exporting out of flash, it's primarily designed to export a swf. To that end, it's not made to be a hardcore movie renderer even though it can do it.

That's why I always take the swf into after effects, and export out of there instead.

First of all, wrong forum.

Anyways, if you're gonna post an animation here, then use Ctrl+Enter or Export -> As SWF. SWFs are what you usually see here when it comes to Flash content.
