    Question Converting SWF to GIF?

    I can't seem to find a free program that converts SWF animations to GIF files. I simply want to make something to use in a signature, and every swf to gif converter out there puts a watermark on it or doesn't make it loop.

    I need it to loop, have no sound and no watermarks.

    So is there any way to convert a swf to a gif without any limitations? I'm not going to pay for software just so I can convert one file.

    This seems to work easily, select the flv located on your hard drive, select the format desired, select the quality and voila you've got you gif. This was the first result in a google search.

    FLV? It's a .swf file...

    And every time I try to convert it I get a pop-up message saying please retry or inform us.

    This may be pretty obvious, but can you render it into a gif? What about converting the .swf into flv then to gif?

    This may be pretty stupid, but what do you mean by rendering it into a gif?

    It's funny, because there are so many looping gifs of such popular videos that originated as swfs. If only you could upload swfs to youtube and then you can just use gif soup to make it...

    And no, I can't convert it to anything it seems.

    Here's where I downloaded it from if it helps.
