Mostly Adobe® Flash® Professional and Adobe Flex Builder™ are used to create SWF files. The source FLA or Flex files are created in these environments and after all necessary works they are compiled to SWF format. This means that when you need to make changes to SWF file you will need its source FLA or Flex project files and open them in Adobe® Flash® Professional or Adobe Flex Builder™ respectively, then edit them in there and publish back to SWF format.
But what if you lost original FLA or Flex files or they were corrupted, but the SWF needs changes? Or what if you paid for a banner for your website and Flash developer disappeared with source files? How to extract FLA out of SWF in this case?
Develop the whole project from a scratch with Adobe® Flash® Professional or Adobe Flex Builder™
Disadvantages: Developing the whole project from scratch, especially when the animation is complex, takes a lot of effort and time. And you must be really into the Flash technology.
Order the development of the project to a specialist, who can recreate the source files having only resulting SWF in hand.
Disadvantages:This can be very expensive as professionals cost a lot.
The above solutions definitely don't combine fast speed and reasonable pricing for getting the source code of the SWF file you've got.
