What Is SWF Format?

SWF (Shockwave Flash) is a proprietary file format for multimedia, vector graphics and ActionScript. SWF files can be generated from within several Adobe products including Flash, Flash Builder (an IDE) and After Effects, as well as through MXMLC, a command line application compiler which is part of the freely available Flex SDK.

There are two kinds of SWF, vector based animation and raster based video. Strictly speaking, vector based animation is not video, many of them need user interaction, so it's hard to convert them to other video format. Raster based video, is the same as FLV format, you can easily convert to any other format.
