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.

    @MicroMachine You don't want to export to flash. See this post for more info. Commented Jul 13, 2017 at 2:09
  • This is not solved then? I thought it implied AE can output a SWF still (or Adobe Media Encoder?...) Commented Jul 13, 2017 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 Commented Jul 13, 2017 at 2:14
