Working with SWF Video
Now that our Adobe Premiere tutorial has shown you how to install an SWF plugin, it's time to use that plugin to import and work with an SWF movie. Open the "File" menu and choose "Import." Navigate to the location on your hard drive where the SWF video you want to work with is located, and double-click the file to launch the plugin. After a short wait signaled by a progress bar, your SWF file will be brought into the "Browser" section of Adobe Premiere (by default, the upper left window) for you to work with.
To edit the video, double-click it to place it within the "Edit" window, where you can set the start and end points just like a regular video. Alternatively, drag it onto the timeline (the long strip usually located along the lower half of the program window) to lay the whole SWF, beginning to end, into your movie. Here you can cut portions you don't want, re-arrange the video as you see fit, or place the video within a larger presentation. If you find the watermark that the trial version places on your video distracting, consider copy-'n'-pasting the portion you're using onto a higher track, applying a "Blur" filter, then cropping it so only the watermark is blurred. This will allow you to better evaluate the video quality to see whether the full version is worth your money.
To output the video, just select "Export" from the "File" menu and send the video to a DVD or movie file as you would any other project.
