if the animation is made in flash, export it in .swf format. Newgrounds only accepts .swf files. If all you have is a .mov file and nothing else, you would only be able to upload it by importing the file into flash and exporting to swf.

I haven't got the swf, because as I said I had to edit it in final cut. I have only a mov. it says it can import only FLV (ok i can export flv from final cut i think) but it will cause audio sync problems.

The place you are looking for is www.youtube.com


You can solve pretty much any problem you may have with AS3 by consulting the AS3 Language reference.

it is a flash animation anyway, this is a place for flash animation right? For technical reason I had to edit it as a video file.
I have seen some animations here which i am sure passed a phase of video encoding, I would like to know how to do it.

By doing what you did, and then embedding the video file into a SWF.
Newgrounds only accepts SWF files. Nothing else. No exceptions.

Tom says that'll change sometime. We just don't know when. Hopefully soon.

Download a software(I have Any Video Converter) which can convert videos in other formats(.mp3, .avi, .flv, .swf too)

Contact Tom Fulp, Newgrounds accepts video files but it's still in beta.

anything .mov is not Flash you can only submit .swf files to Newgrounds.
Or if you ask Tom nicely you can submit a MP4 file.

Import the flash file into after effects. After Effects lets you export as the mov to a .SWF
