The switch was flawless. Sound and picture are intact and of great quality. It really is so easy a newb can use it. Can't tell you how elated I was when I saw the finished file.

Thank you Mike! The quality of the mp4 looks amazing! I also like the ability to chain swf movies, which will do wonders for the Sonic Shorts Volume series. I'll become a NG supporter as soon as I can to help with the site. :)

Keep up the great work!

See, THIS is why Newgrounds will always remain - it loves its users so much and is literally the easiest to use set of services on the internet.

So far, on Newgrounds, you have access to:

500 MB of free storage
A File Server for Hosting Flash Saves for Games
Highscore Tables
Stat Tracking
Easy Monetization
A Ridiculously Useful Project Manager
A Whole Goddamn Suit of Tools for Making Your Stuff go Viral

and now, the unthinkable, the pinnacle of "this will never come out" an Swf to MP4 compiler that's even better then the .mov compiler Adobe used to make - much better.

I don't even know how you got AS things like VCam to work, this is just so incredibly awesome in every sense of the word.

I once had this issue when I was exporting to .MP4 for a film festival, the end result was me screen capturing the thing in the crappiest way possible because there simply weren't any options. Now that is dead and gone.

Good job Mike, and thanks Tom for keeping this site long enough to let this happen.

Karma pays off eventually, we'll all get our second wind as a community soon enough.


Good.

Wow! That's wonderful!
(I haven't tested it fully -- but why not consider adding a notice asking the user to join newgrounds and/or the supporter upgrade for using this software if it helped?)

Looks like the integration of Swivel will open the doors to NG having a great system of showcasing media on smartphones.

Awesome move.

But no this is great. Companies like SoThink, charge for kit like this. Its good to know time and effort has been put in to something, solely to help the artists.

I've seen Jess the Dragoon using it on Super Hero Clock Teaser trailer. Really good. Really no lag!
