I would like to export some simple vector animations created with After Effects, and keep the animation in a vector form, such as the Flash format. I am using After Effects CC and it seems that there is no built-in export procedure to do so. Is there a way to do this?


You can export to the vector format SVG using an AfterEffects plugin called Bodymovin. It has some limitations, but is a very useful plugin.

If you really want to export to Flash, export to SWF format. Though you may run into some issues doing that, so looking at a video tutorial may help.

  • Do you know how to export to Flash in AE CC? – MicroMachine Jul 12 '17 at 23:35

    @MicroMachine You don't want to export to flash. See this post for more info. – Zach Saucier Jul 13 '17 at 2:09
  • This is not solved then? I thought it implied AE can output a SWF still (or Adobe Media Encoder?...) – MicroMachine Jul 13 '17 at 2:13
  • @MicroMachine I haven't tried to, but you can look in the linked video or other resources for how to do so. What I'm saying is that you shouldn't :P – Zach Saucier Jul 13 '17 at 2:14
