i'm using Flash to create the animation of my character in 2D (i'm just beginning). Is it possible to make a tween effect of a character, and then automatically export all the images/frames?

So far, it's a bit fastidious : i create my tweening effect, then i put a keyframe for each frame i want to copy and paste, then i select the movieclips and shapes and copy and paste them into another flash document, i position those clips at the exact same location as the previous image, then i erase the previous image and export the image... For 30 frames! Is there any faster way?

Take a look at the Grapefrukt Exporter library.

hi Functastic, i imported grapfrukt-export.swc, and added the few lines as in the video. I also created a movieclip "test", and another movieClip "testSheet", but when i launch the project, i've got an error 1065 : variable testSheet not defined, and Maintimeline not defined...? do you how i could fix it? Thanks – Paul Jun 20 '12 at 16:28
I don't know. Maybe ask on the grapefrukt exporter github issue tracker, or at: – Functastic Jun 22 '12 at 14:23
