Are there any tools for converting SWF to PDF? I have a bunch of SWF files (to be ripped from the web) and I'd like to group them into single PDF.


Here is a nice tutorial how to do that using a combination of swftools and imageMagic.

Basically, use swfrender to convert the SWF to PNG, then convert to convert PNG to PDF.

  • Is there a proper deb package for swftools? It seems that apt can't find it and other tutorials suggest compiling from the source. – Eimantas Jul 29 '11 at 16:11
  • I have no idea, (I have compiled them from source, it's fairly easy). but here I found some debs. HTH – Philomath Jul 29 '11 at 17:26
