Ok, so I gave this a go myself. I've got it to start, but if I try to import a .swf file or even open the included tutorial file it shuts down.

What's your secret?  Do you have to make changes with regedit?

Thanks in advance.

Awe, I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed when I got to here only find out it needed wine and this Windows based application  >:( . I was sort of hunting down a Linux based app. or at least something I can plug into GIMP to save as .swf

Anyway, it's good information none-the-less.  8)

Masta@
 u can always use png2swf ( from swftools) to make swf from pngs!
there is a video tutorial on how to use it with Inkscape:

but, in order for Inkscape to e able to interpolate u'll first have to install lxml:

Later, if u r into ActionScript 2.0 u can use mtasc or mtasc+swfmill

And if u r into ActionScript 3.0 u can try it with adobe's flex sdk
