Issues installing the application:

OSX: if you get the message "SWFRendererTrial.mpkg can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer"
Solution: In "Preferences" >> "Security & Privacy" >> "General" >> "Allow apps downloaded from" select the option: "Anywhere"

Windows: the application does not load
Solution: If you are using an Anti Virus it could be what is stopping the application from loading. You need to add an exception to your Anti Virus software to load the application.

Usage questions:

Can I use the same setting for all SWF files?
Yes, if you customize the settings before importing - it will apply them to all imported files. Starting from version 2.04 we also have an "Apply to all" button which applies the current settings to all render jobs.

How do I use the command line

Can I install SWF Renderer on my Server?
The license prohibits this: You may not use SWFRenderer on a server, re-sell or otherwise provide any kind of service using this technology, without the express authorization to do so from the developer. Please contact us if you have questions: support@kurst.co.uk we are happy to discuss any setup / requirements you may have.
