This Visual C# example shows how to convert Flash movie (SWF) to image file (PNG) using Bytescout SWF To Video SDK for Visual C# developers.

The SDK is accessible from .NET applications to convert Flash to image files.

Imports System.Diagnostics
Imports BytescoutSWFToVideo

Class Program
    Friend Shared Sub Main(args As String())

        ' Create an instance of SWFToVideo ActiveX object
        Dim z As New SWFToVideo()
        Dim converter As New SWFToVideo()

        ' Set debug log
        'converter.SetLogFile("log.txt");

        ' Register SWFToVideo
        converter.RegistrationName = "demo"
        converter.RegistrationKey = "demo"


        ' Enable trasparency - set BEFORE setting input SWF filename
        converter.RGBAMode = True

            ' Set input SWF file
            converter.InputSWFFileName = "Shapes.swf"


        ' Select 20th frame
        converter.StartFrame = 20
        converter.StopFrame = 20

        ' Run conversion
        converter.ConvertToPNG("result.png")

        ' Open the result in default application
        Process.Start("result.png")

    End Sub
End Class
