swf in blender

is there a way to read swf files into the vse- it drops a strip in, but nothing shows up on the preview

use a swf2avi converter (google for free/open source ones) and use the avi strip

I use Screen Recorder Gold

Just screen capture your SWF and then save it out as an AVI. If you actually are working in Flash and have the FLA file, more recent versions of flash can save out a SWF as a MOV.
