"swfcombine -a" - Concatenate SWF Files

This section provides a tutorial example on how to concatenate two SWF files by appending frames from one file to the end of another file using the 'swfcombine -a' command.

The SWFCombine tool can also be used to concatenate two SWF files by appending frames from one SWF file to the end of another file. Here is the syntax to concatenate frames from 2 SWF files together:

swfcombine -o output.swf -a input_1.swf input_2.swf

Let's test the concatenation function using SWF slide shows generated from Windows 7 wallpaper pictures:

C:\herong>\local\SWFTools\jpeg2swf -f -X 384 -Y 240 -r 0.25 
   -o landscapes.swf \windows\web\Wallpaper\landscapes\img*.jpg

C:\herong>\local\SWFTools\jpeg2swf -f -X 384 -Y 240 -r 0.25 
   -o nature.swf \windows\web\Wallpaper\nature\img*.jpg

C:\herong>\local\SWFTools\swfcombine -o concatenated.swf 
   -a landscapes.swf nature.swf

C:\herong>\local\bin\flashplayer_13_sa concatenated.swf

You will see 2 slide shows are nicely concatenated into a single one.

Note that "swfcombine -a" will use the frame rate of the first input file as the frame rate of the output file.

"swfcombine -a" will also use the display size of the first input file as the display of the output file.
