iPixSoft GIF to SWF Converter1.3.3
PixSoft GIF to SWF Converter is a simple-to-use piece of software designed to turn GIF animations into Flash videos (SWF format). It also offers support for GIF, BMP, PNG, JPEG and JPG files.
Fast install and clean UI
Setting up the app takes little time and effort. As far as the GUI is concerned, the tool comprises a user-friendly interface that shouldn't impose any difficulties to users.
Image files can be added to the task list using the file browser only, since the drag-and-drop method is unsupported. Shown information includes the name, frame count, size and full path for each image.
Set output settings and default app options
It is possible to preview GIFs in a small, built-in player, point out the saving location and SWF file name, select the image format between PNG, JPEG and Bitmap, as well as to choose the picture quality and frame rate. Plus, you can extract the image serial with the click of a button, in single or batch mode, as well as re-arrange items in any order in the list.
As far as program settings go, it is possible to change the default SWF frame rate, version, image format, quality and output directory, as well as to enable loop mode for the GIF previews.
Evaluation and conclusion
The software utility does not put a strain on computer resources, since it uses low CPU and RAM. However, it may take a while to carry out a conversion job. Unfortunately, PixSoft GIF to SWF Converter can only process images in batch mode; it cannot actually merge all items before turning them into a single Flash video. On top of that, the app's limited feature-set does not justify its price. Users may resort to more reliable software apps for creating SWF videos from GIFs and other image types.
