This script enables export layers to an animated SWF (Adobe Flash) file.
It requires "png2swf" executable file, therefore you have to install the SWFTools package before using this script.

It is based on the cr33dog Export Layers as PNG plugin script.

It has been tested on the Linux Mint 14 (KDE) and Windows XP with SWFTools 0.9.2 and GIMP 2.8.4.

Note for Windows users:
You need add SWFTools executables directory (which contains 'png2swf.exe' executable file) to the GIMP environment PATH variable into the file:
"C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\environ\default.env"

like in the example here:
PATH=${gimp_installation_dir}\bin;C:\Program Files\SWFTools

Note for Linux users:
You have to change the file permission to executable.
