I'd probably say done in flash, but possibly done in after effects. Most of the high end animations are being done in after effects then imported into flash...

I also heard of a program called Swift3d which can save files into flv.

Swift3d can do some really neat stuff. But as I remember it did require some understanding of 3D software, etc.

Swift 3d is really easy to learn compared to 3ds Max, Maya or Blender.

Swift 3d can export to .swf or .flv or .fla

Hello,

"Most of the high end animations are being done in after effects then imported into flash..."

Exactly how would this type of thing be exported from after effects? as a video file of some sort?

What is the basic procedure being used when animating in after effectsand then importing into Flash?

Thanks in advance.
