Flash CS5.5/Photoshop CS5.5, .MOV and .AVI problems and video editing ///help needed///

Okay, so this is basically my problem :

I use Photoshop and Flash to animate (I use both ^^), though, there's something that's wrong with both of them :
If I try to export the file in .AVI format, the quality is WRECKED.
There's this weird, unsmooth grizzly effect that I just can't stand that appears and completely wrecks all of the hard work put into the drawing.
And if I try to export a file as .AVI in flash, hell goes loose.
Frames go missing, it skips through the entire thing, sometimes it's just plain black, other times it'll play normally, but that's quite rare...
You : Then why don't you export/rend in another type of file ?
Let's see :
In Photoshop, all of the other file formats have the same problem as the .AVI file (minus all the frame skipping and all, but the quality is nevertheless WRECKED...that or they're image sequences which give you thirty-five different images, and that is not what I'm looking for).
In flash, same thing.
Except one file format (in both programs).
.MOV/Quicktime.
The quality is PERFECT and nothing is wrecked, it's amazing.
You : Okay, then why don't you just export that and then edit it in some program ?
Aaaand there's my main problem.
I can't find a *some program* to edit the darn .mov file with.
Yes, I did google my head off, I downloaded various video editors and searched in the deepest parts of my computer, and either they didn't support .MOV, they weren't exactly what I wanted (I want something that can put effects, like WLMM, etc.), they were extremely complex or they put a HUGEASS watermark if you try to export/publish ._.
Here's the list of all the program I tried :
-Adobe Premier
-Adobe After Effects
-AVS Video Editor
-Windows Live Movie Maker
-Windows Movie Maker
-VideoSpin
-WonderShare Video Editor
-Camtasia <- Okay, that one I have not tried, but my trial expired D: ///if you can get me a free version of this program, I'll be so grateful, it's such an amazing program ;a;///
-And more that I can't remember or that I deleted
-This is not counting programs I have READ about only
I would be eternally grateful to anyone who helps me solve this problem of mine...
Thank you in advance c:

Yeah flash loves to kill the quality if you export it as avi. ^^;

What I personally do, I dont export it at all.

I publish the swf file. And I import that into Adobe After Effects. It doesnt kill quality. Then I add it to the timeline and render it, leaving a huuuuge file but no quality loss at all. After that I like to re-render it in movie maker, reducing the file size yet keeping it HD.

So remember, .swf in after effects does the trick. :D Then you can choose to convert it to w/e, I like to make it avi and make it mp4 later in movie maker.

Luna you got plenty of options:

1) Use a screen recording software (*optimal)
2) Use an FLV to Video Converter like [link]
2.1) Use an MOV to Video Converter???
3) Use Sony Vegas (it accepts MOV files) to edit nd convert it.
4) Use [link] to convert it online for free and without any watermarks or ads.
