flash to vegas?

I have a few little flash movies I need to make into another format, I know vegas does not do it so what are the best and also the lowest cost or free way to do it, its not super quality conscious, it just needs to be transferred from flash to wmv or mov file, so a freeware utility may be fine if it helps.

As for the best what are the good options to take video from vegas, either avi, wmv or mov and create flash from it? for my website or youtube? anything good other than flash itself? anything that is OK and less expensive?

And another important side note anyone figure out a way to make the final footage look good on computer since the difference is like bright daylight to late dusk really when looking from a hdtv which is bright and contrasty and looks great and than look at the footage on a computer monitor where it looks desaturated and dark and drab, its really bad, I cannot believe that all movie programs do not have a built in TV mode simulator to help translate it better to screen.

Hey Stephen, remember me? I lost your number. Anyways, to answer your question, you can google "flv to avi" or "swf to avi" or "flash to avi converter" and download a free converter.

Here's one I found: http://www.avi-swf-convert.com/

For youtube, you can just upload a wmv file or any of the supported formats and it will automatically convert it to flash. You can also use Quicktime files for your website in the h264 format and make them download as they play ("check fast start compressed header" or "fast start").

As for the difference in look, you'd have to preview it on a TV. Do you have a broadcast monitor that is hooked up to your editing system? Use that, but also make sure your TV (and for that matter, ever monitor you're using) is calibrated as best as it can be.

I hope this helps.

You computer can show a larger amount of colors than a TV can. A computer can display darker and lighter than a TV, and it can display a wider variety of colors. This is not a "simulator" issue, it's one of physics. Similar to looking at a projected movie, versus looking at photos in a magazine. One can simply show more levels of color and brightness than the other. There is no "simulator" between one and the other.
